Hard track
Starting near the end of Dalrymple Road, Dalrymple Heights, this walk takes you to the summit of Mount Dalrymple via a singular track, crossing multiple creeks along the way. You can expect a truly panoramic view over the whole hinterland around you that will make this journey worthwhile. Hike through a forest that looks so ancient you may lose your sense of time and feel like you’ll run into a velociraptor as you turn a corner. Strangler figs and all kinds of majestic plants add to the scenery as well. There are heaps of leeches in the area due to the humidity, so cover yourself well and bring insect repellent. Take lots of water and also consider wearing hiking boots with ankle support. 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.
