Getting There

Start: Langi Ghiran Picnic and Camping area

Finish: Parking area for Lar-Ne-Jeering Aboriginal art site

Take the Western Highway through Beaufort. About 11 km after Buangor, take the second turn off right into Langi Ghiran State Park.  Do not take the first entry to the Park (7.5 km after Buangor) as that is not allowed.  On the second turn off (Kartuk Road or on some maps Langi Ghiran Picnic Ground Road) note the Railway Crossing and travel 5 km to the picnic/camping area, where the walk starts.

This is a one way walk requiring a car shuffle. At least one car will need to be left at the Lar-Ne-Jeering car park. To get there from the start point drive south down Langi Ghiran Track. This adds about 13 km for the round trip.
