Starting from the Cragg's Hut car park off Mallee Drive, Murray River National Park, this walk takes you on a circuit past the ruins of Cragg's Hut via the Cragg's Hut Walking Trail. This short and easy loop takes walkers past the ruins of Cragg's Hut in the Katarapko section of Murray River National Park, providing an insight into the area's European history. Built from the limestone quarried nearby, the hut was the home of the Crai­gie family in the mid-1800s. In the early 1930s, the Bland and Bennet families settled in the area, and the remnants of the Blands' home can also be seen along the trail. After passing the his­toric remains of the homes of the Crai­gies and the Blands, the trail passes the grave of Mar­garet Craigie before reaching a look­out with views over the land that once supported these fam­i­lies. There are several interpretive signs along the trail detailing the lives and struggles of these European settlers who once worked the land here. There's also a boat ramp located near the car park, which provides the opportunity for canoeing or kayaking. This loop consists of narrow, gently undulating walking trails with uneven natural surfaces and compacted natural surfaces and is suitable for most fitness levels. 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.
