Excursion 25/11/2018 Mt Cordeaux, Main Range National Park Barney Hines This walk ventures onto the upper slopes of Mount Cordeaux, the northern of the two peaks that guard Cunningham’s Gap. The walk follows a graded track through rainforest, before entering some montane heath towards the end. There are cliffs along the upper part of the track and limited space at the lookout such that the group may have to split if we have large numbers. The walk is 6.8km long. Please bring water and lunch, hat and sunburn cream. Expect leaches if it has been raining.
There are giant spear lilies Doryanthes palmeri near the lookout which may be in flower. Butterflies are likely to be active in the warm weather.
