Comments :


The easy Bar Mountain circuit is a beautiful walk that winds its way down the ridge towards the western escarpment.

Starting from Bar Mountain picnic area, youíll be walking beneath towering eucalypt giants on your way to Bar Mountain lookout. At the lookout, youíll be rewarded with panoramic views of Collins creek, exquisite wilderness, Mount Lindesay and Mount Barney, all part of the World Heritage-listed rainforest.

Spend as long as you like taking in the views, you could even take along some lunch or a thermos for a cup of tea. When itís time to leave, head back up to the picnic area along the ridge, past cliffs and more of that lush vegetation.
