Hard track
Starting from the car park at the end of Wyaralong Dam Access, Wyaralong, this walk explores the shoreline of Lake Wyaralong and Teviot Brook via the aptly named Shoreline Trail, visiting Ngumbi Remote Campsite along the way. Take the challenge and experience a truly natural journey following the water - and your instincts. Know that the ending point is not the highlight of this trip, as the journey itself is a worthwhile experience in the eyes of many. You’ll be met by peculiar views of nature through this adventure as the trail meanders along the waterway. The said trail is also open to mountain bikes and horses. The Ngumbi Campsite midway is a perfect stop to enjoy the night sky and sleep in the refreshing ambiance by the water. There is a canoe access point near the campsite if you’d like to explore the waters of Teviot Brook as well. Speaking of, kayaking, rowing and canoeing are pretty popular in the area. Keep in mind that this walk can also be done in the reverse direction. Keep an eye out for snakes during warmer months. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
