Hard track
Starting from Boundary Falls Camping Area just this scenic walk in Gibraltar Range National Park will take you through an open eucalypt forest to a lookout with great views over Lyrebird Falls and Boundary Creek. You can hear and see heaps of Lyrebirds, hence the name. Keep your binoculars close as you can also get a chance to spot some Wedge-tailed eagles making use of the thermal air currents. Let us begin by acknowledging the Ngoorabul people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
