This morning I began my travels by heading for the Toonumbar National Park and the Murray Scrub Track (5.5km return – 1 1/2 hours). The road via Geneva is generally very good, with the 500m road off the Iron Pot Creek Camping Area being a little rough, but easily traversed.
The walk itself is very worthwhile, though during my visit it was dreadfully dry thanks to the current terrible drought.
Next I visited the Iron Pot Creek Camping Area and walked a short track in the area (500m – 10 minutes) – the Iron Pot Loop.
After this I returned to the forest drive and continued on to the Toonumbar Forest Drive, which is apparently a 4WD only track. Certainly the condition of the road in certain sections ‘cries out’ 4WD only. However there was no sign to say that and I managed to make my way along the entire road (though when I reached the end I looked back and saw that the road was apparently closed – would have been helpful at the other end as well).
Anyhow, along the way I visited Murray Scrub Lookout and Sherwood Lookout.
After this I headed for Koreelah National Park towards the Queensland border and Qld’s Main Range National Park. Here I visited the camping area and did the short walk to Koreelah Creek Falls. Sadly there was little water going over the falls due to the continuing drought.
After this it was time to visit Tooloom National Park and the Tooloom Picnic Area. Here there are two short walks. The first leads to Tooloom Lookout and the second through the rainforest.
