About the Walk


The 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 time of year the walk is undertaken wildflowers can be abundant.

The Walk in Detail

This easy walk showcases beautiful waterfalls and a spectacular gorge as well as varied alpine vegetation and a historic cattleman’s hut. From the sheltered car park, the walk is on a well-defined track which quickly descends into open snow plains. The track follows the creek leading to the Pieman Falls viewpoint. After viewing the falls continue through woodland in a northerly direction for 2 km to view Bryces Gorge and the Conglomerate Falls. This is a nice spot for a lunch break. On leaving the falls, the walk heads in a westerly then southerly direction, which leads to Guys Hut situated on Bryces Plain. From here it is a 1km gentle climb back to the car park.

Getting There

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 67kms.
