About the Walk

Overview

The highlight of this walk is camping out in spectacular country. The other highlights of the Bryces Gorge circuit walk are the views from platforms overlooking the two waterfalls, Guys Hut, and of course Bryces Gorge itself. Depending upon the season wildflowers can be abundant. Lots of photo opportunities.

The Walk in Detail

Why not try this day walk as a beginner’s or easy overnight pack carry. From the Bryces Gorge car park, follow a faint foot track along Piemans Creek to Piemans Falls, about 1.5 km. Drop packs and explore the views. Continue along the foot track to other viewing points along the edge of Bryces Gorge. Drop our packs at the overnight camp spot just before Conglomerate Creek, about 2 km. Cross the creek and scramble down a steep hillside to the bottom of Conglomerate Falls. After viewing the falls, return to our camp site. If the weather is bad, walk on another 500 metres to a sheltered camp site and set up for the night. In good weather, camp on the edge of the Gorge, relax and enjoy the view. The next morning, pack up and walk up the faint track along Conglomerate Creek to Guys Hut, about 3 km. Cross the creek and walk to the car park, about another 1km. There are a few short, mild uphill stretches on the walk, but there is plenty of time so we can pause to recover our breath at any time.

Getting There

From the Licola Wilderness village head back towards Heyfield over the bridge and Macalister River and immediately take the Tamboritha Road to Arbuckle Junction (46.5km) then veer left onto Howitt Road and continue past the Airfield to Bryces Gorge Car Park on the right. Ample parking and toilet available. The first 22km is sealed, the rest is unsealed. Distance from the Licola Wilderness Village to the start of the walk is 67 km.
