If you’re an experienced off-track walker with specialist equipment and well-developed navigational skills, then the walk to this remote camp site is for you.
Pitch your tent 915m above sea level on the western side of Point Pure. Shaded by eucalypts and fire-scarred grasstrees, you’ll have uninterrupted western views into the valley, along meandering Blackfellow Creek and across to the range shared with Glen Rock State Forest.
Cast your eyes northwards to 990m Mount Mistake in the Mistake Range, and to the north-west to Glen Rock—the iconic pinnacle of red basalt boulders.
This park is part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area, famed for its ongoing geological processes, evolutionary history, and diversity (especially of rare, threatened and endemic species).
