About the Walk
This complex of walking tracks offers multiple options and loops ranging from two to six kilometres and from moderate to hard. During spring a variety of wildflowers can be seen here. Look out for Turquoise parrots too. The walks start at Sunrise Carpark at the end of Delloro Road and includes an initial detour to Quarry Lookout.
The Walk in Detail
Take the signed track to the Quarry Lookout, and follow this through to a former quarry (750m). There are great views here. Follow the blue arrows which indicate the next part of the route which meets up with the green arrows of Sunrise Track at a T-junction. Turn right here and follow this narrow track through to another T-junction. This is Bracken Link, and you need to keep straight-ahead here, and continue through to some excellent views at a hill-top. Continuing on to a vehicular track, turn right at a MVO “management vehicles only” roadway, and follow this to a signposted right turn.
The route now starts its meandering way back to the start, meeting up with Bracken Link once more (at the opposite end to the previously mentioned intersection). Arriving at the second T-junction (as encountered on the outgoing section) turn left, and follow this through to the first T-junction. Keep straight-ahead here, and it is only a few hundred metres to the car park, and the finish of the walk.
A copy of the 1:50,000 scale topographic map “Wangaratta” will aid navigation.
(-36.3925, 146.2387) -- 10 kms from Wangaratta. 15 minutes.
Turn west at the Delloro Road/Warby Range Road cross-roads onto an unsealed roadway for about a kilometre to a small parking area.
Some of the tracks are steep in places with many steps. A reasonable level of fitness and bushwalking experience is recommended.
