About the Walk
Some of the key attractions of the area are towering mountain ash forest and ferny gullies. Sulphur-crested cockatoos, crimson rosellas, laughing kookaburras, eastern yellow robins, yellow-faced honeyeaters and pied currawongs are some of the native birds to be seen. The superb lyrebird is also likely to be heard, and maybe seen.
The Walk in Detail
From the Ten Mile Picnic Area, walk back down Donna Buang Road for 1.0 km to the access road to Mount Victoria on the left. Follow this gated track for about 1 km to a pair of communication towers. A marked walking track heads off northward towards Mt Donna Buang. Follow this track for 2.6 km over Mount Victoria to the summit of Mount Donna Buang, ignoring the track branching off to the left, which leads back to Ten Mile Picnic Area. There is a tall observation tower on the summit with extensive views over the surrounding forest and a picnic area that could be a good spot for lunch.
At the end of the car park to the east of the observation tower, take a track marked ‘To Dom Dom Saddle’ heading northeast. Follow this track for approx. 2.5 km to the summit of Mount Boobyalla. The track continues north-northeast for another 1 km before it intersects with a closed catchment access road. This track is followed to the right downhill for another 2.5 km until reaching Acheron Way. Follow Acheron Way to the right for about 1km to return to the cars at the Rainforest Gallery.
