Starting from the car park at the end of Josephine Falls Road, this walk takes you to the Broken Nose peak and back mostly via the Bartle Frere Trail, crossing Majuba Creek along the way. Around 950 metres above the ground, the Broken Nose provides you with an exceptional bird’s eye view over the hinterland and surrounding mountains. This hike can be considered training before the lengthy and challenging Mount Bartle Frere hike, with some parts of it as steep. The gorgeous rainforest provides you shade throughout the track, with interesting fungi species on trees for you to observe. Additionally, you can cool off in the suitable spots along the creek, or visit the rock pools of Josephine Falls after the journey. Speaking of, the creek crossing may require you to get your feet wet as well. The Big Rock Camp along the way offers a creekside night in the rainforest, if you’d like to make this a multi-day journey. Make sure there is no rain before, during or after your journey as the rocks and tree roots along the track become slippery and dangerous. Besides, there will be an unbelievable amount of leeches in wet conditions. The track may require a bit of rock scrambling. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Return

Walk
8 h 30 min to 2 days

Starting from the car park at the end of Josephine Falls Road, this walk takes you to the southern peak of Mount Bartle Frere and back via a singular track, crossing Majuba Creek twice along the way. Expect a physical and mental challenge as you ascend to what feels like the mythic Mount Olympus, with mist setting in near the summit. The way up is going to be steep in places, and the scenery will change with the vegetation, transforming into an exceptional rainforest. Although the aforementioned mist usually reduces the viewing distance, the true reward of this walk is being able to finish it. It’s a lengthy journey which can be done in a day if you’re really fit and it’s dry. Otherwise, you can spend the night at the Eastern Summit and Big Rock campsites and go for the peak in the morning. Regardless of the way you choose to do it, you should make sure the conditions are dry and it will not rain while you’re there. Because the leeches reach outrageous numbers in wet conditions, and almost all of the track becomes dangerously slippery. Considering you may need to slide on your bottom for some descents, this becomes more of a problem. You’ll be rock hopping/scrambling and dealing with leeches as well, therefore decent hiking shoes and gaiters are recommended. Bring plenty of water(around 4 litres each) and an insect repellent. Expect to get wet feet on the creek crossings. You can fully get wet and cool off in the suitable spots along the creek as well, or visit the rock pools of Josephine Falls after the journey. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
