Starting from the Wog Wog Campground off Charleys Forest Road, Morton National Park, this walk takes you past Corang Peak and Corang Arch, to the Burrumbeet Brook Campsite and back via the Wog Wog Walking Track. This challenging hike winds its way through varied landscapes in the southwestern section of Morton National Park, passing spectacular viewpoints and rock formations along the way, including Corang Peak and Corang Arch. Much of the hike traverses the Budawang Wilderness, where there are no signs or marked tracks. The walk initially leaves the campground and crosses Wog Wog Creek, then meanders through the open forest along an old fire trail, which becomes a foot track, eventually reaching conglomerate outcrops. After passing the Goodsell and Tinderry lookouts, the walk reaches a junction with the track to Corang Lagoon, which is closed to the public, then continues south towards the Corang Plateau. From the plateau, the track gets rocky terrain, the scrub gets denser, and you'll get views of Corang Peak and beyond. Beyond Korra Hill, the track forks, with the left-hand track climbing over Corang Peak and offering panoramic views from the summit, while the right-hand track, which can be taken on the way back, skirts around the base. On the other side, the track rejoins and continues to Corang Arch, an impressive sandstone rock arch located on the western side of the plateau. From there, walkers can either return and avoid staying overnight, descend to Canowie Brook, where there are a few small campsites, or continue further to Burrumbeet Brook, which has several camp caves and campsites. This walk consists of wide fire tracks and narrow walking trails, with uneven natural surfaces, compacted natural surfaces, off-track sections, rock scrambling sections, creek crossings and steep hills. Suitable for high 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.
