Hard track
Rocky Crossing return walk starts near the Barrington Guest House, initially heading along the Blue Gum Loop track up the Williams River valley. The track leads to a series of waterholes including a lovely waterfall at Rocky Crossing. This is a beautiful walk through the rainforest of Barrington Tops National Park with plenty of places to stop and enjoy the dense forest. To make this a much shorter walk you can use the alternate access track to Lagoon Pinch, if you can organise the transport. Let us begin by acknowledging the Gringai people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
