I met a group last time I was out there camped out by the ribs who said they stayed the night but not sure if they stayed by the lagoon or that other campsite inbetween. I've been trying to contact the ranger responsible for that area but haven't received any responses as yet.

Okay thanks only ask as I’am looking to go in a couple of weeks and that’s where I planned to camp. It you hear from the ranger please let me know what he says about the new situation.

I't would make for a lazy weekend but it's only a couple of hours from the Wog Wog entrance and probably the less interesting part of the Corang Loop. It's worth walking that part of the loop, it's good but if you're coming in from Wog Wog, I'd be thinking camping up around the Cascades if starting later in the day, or the Burrumbeet Caves might make for a better full day's bushwalking/Exploring.

FYI we visited yesterday. No signs. Most of the large fireplaces have been dispersed, but apart from that looked as before.

I'm interested in this also? Any updates around this private property issue? Thanks in advance, Nick

Like Nick, I'm keen on any updates, as am planning a trip to Corang in May. Thanks for any advice on the current state of affairs.
I'd also appreciate any advice on alternative campsites just east of the private property boundary that might be a viable option. I recall another side-creek campsite on this route, but wasn't sure if it was on park.

Couple of campsites not far past the private property.. First one just near broula brook (on the east side of the brook... I think thats in the np?) and one at the junction of canowie brook and a side creek about half way between the main cascades and the larger canowie brook campsite on the main track (maybe 15 mins past the cascades... Definitely in the np)

I've been trying to get in touch with the ranger to no avail but I was through there about a month and a half ago and the signs have been removed. Not sure by who. Life sorta got in the way and haven't been able to pursue it further. But a good reminder to get back into it.
Walk_fat_boy_walk is right about the other sites but obviously you don't have an awesome swimming hole right next to you. Given the lack of signs I'd feel rather comfortable to stay the night there.
I'm planning to walk out through there in early May coming in from folly point. Might pass you at some stage.

Thanks guys, I think the Broula Brook that Walk_fat_boy_walk mentioned is the one was the one I was thinking of - old campsite on a shady little knoll next to a small creek. I also recall some old blogs that mentioned numerous swimming holes bewteen the rock ribs and the lagoon, so I was interested to find out if that was true. My occasional glances in this direction have often spied blackberry, but I'm not really sure if they are thick or consistent. I've never wasted energy on investigating this possibility before, but might do so this time. I'm heading that way on the weekend of 18/19 May, so would be keen on heairng your report, Huntsman247.

I'm headed through couple weeks earlier insect_eater. Will post a report.

Just heard back from the ranger today. Apparently npws found out about the sale of the property after it had been sold already.
He said that he's been trying to contact the owners and that he'll be trying to negotiate for the track and place to be kept open. I've been told to check back in 6 months time.

At the moment I think pleading ignorance is the best option. Hopefully liability is the reason for the signs and something can be worked out.

If I had known that piece of land was for sale, I so would have bought it. I didn't even realise it was outside the NP until this thread was posted.

I guess the lesson in all this is if we notice land that backs up into national park for sale. It may be the course of wisdom to post here and let the local ranger know. The ranger seemed genuinely bummed that they didn't know about it and it seems np would like to acquire that land due to its location.

If you see this before you go, I'd be interested to know whether there is water in the creek near the well-used CC at the eastern end of Burrumbeet Brook.

Just FYI - I was having a squiz on sixmaps today and it looks like the Corang Peak range has been burnt up to Profile Rock - but'I've no idea how old those photos are. You might get a relatively clear run through this part.

The fire was a few years ago and most of the vegetation has grown back. The only real scrub is along the Corang river.

Been a splendid trip. No signs at the lagoon and access seems unobstructed other than the few inconsiderate trees that have fallen over the track that have been there for the last few months anyways. Had a swim this morning and the water temperature was a lovely warm 7.2 degrees according to my watch. I found water to be pretty good everywhere. The creek that intersects the duck board just before the burrumbeet caves is flowing well and I could hear plenty water flowing in the creek near the camp caves. In fact from folly point to wog wog not a single water source that I crossed was dry.
The main track that goes over or around corang peak is pretty well maintained and is easy going despite the fire being a while ago. However between the junction of the main track & the track leading off to the ribs & the ribs themselves (if that made sense) there are definitely good sections of scratchy stuff but nothing that dramatic or that long pants & sleeves can't fix but I guess the scratch-o-meter can be rather relative.

Keen to hear Huntsman what route/track you took from Folly Point over to Burrumbeet, and what state it was in.

My last trip using that entrance was was many years ago (before kids) and since returning to the Budawangs in recent years, I've found many of the tracks I used to walk in the Park ( other than via Long gully/Wog Wog main entrances and tracks) are getting overgrown or completely dissapearing into the scrub.

Thank you Hunstman 247, I'm glad to hear that your trip went well, there is good water and no shotgun tripwires on the PP. I'm looking forward to a little free exfoliation below the kilt approaching the rock ribs (though i'm sure it wont be as Hakeary as Ettrema or as pervasive as the Nadgee wilderness).

Good stuff Huntsman. Like Fiona, I'm also interested in your adventures from Folly Pt to Burrumbeet.

Same! In particular between Folly Point and Mt Cole.

Sounds like I'll have to write up a proper trip report. Maybe tonight when I get a chance.

Was told today that there are signs up at the Wog Wog entrance and at the track junction saying that the track is closed. Anyone have confirmation on this as I was hoping to head down in a month's time.

There weren’t any up when I was there the first weekend of August... Hopefully they aren’t up again.
