This return walk starts at the Robinsons Knob trail car park and takes you through the New England National Park to the rocky plateau with great views of the Bellinger River in the valley. There is a series of small rock scrambles to get onto the plateau. The plateau is made of trachyte (a type of igneous rock) and forms a small section of the ancient Ebor Volcano. Today the plateau is home to low bush providing fantastic views in clear weather. Let us begin by acknowledging the Dunghutti people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.
