Overview

Highlights

Explore huge granite boulders, Alpine Ash forests and Snow Gum woodlands. The Square Rock Lookout is around 1400 metres above sea level with stunning views of the Australian bush. Look for black rock skinks basking on the rock platforms on sunny days, and wedge-tailed eagles gliding above the cliffs on the warm updrafts.

Duration: 8.5 kilometres (4 hours)

The walk starts at the Corin Hub on Corin Road near the Smokers Gap entrance to Namadgi National Park. About half way along the track is Smokers Flat, a flat grassy herbfield with healthy bogs on the edges.

Visit the Namadgi National Park Visitors Centre for the latest track conditions, weather updates, local information and detailed maps before embarking on any bush walk. Hot and cold drinks and snacks also available.

Important Information

Guidelines

  • Always do some research before heading out for your journey. Visit the parks website for the most up to date information.
  • Collection of standing or fallen timber from all public lands, including roadsides, is illegal and environmentally damaging, as it removes important habitat.
  • Wild dogs can be found in low numbers throughout Namadgi. Although incidents of wild dogs interacting with people in Namadgi are extremely rare, visitors are advised to observe the advice on wild dogs to discourage these animals from becoming less fearful of humans. For more information visit the Wild dogs webpage and report any incidents to 6237 5307.
  • Ensure you observe all safety signs. Always stay on the marked tracks where possible. Never climb fences, they are there for your own safety.
  • Wear suitable footwear and always ensure to bring a hat and sunscreen to protect yourself from the elements when exploring Australia.
  • Plan ahead and ensure to take enough food and water for your journey.
  • Please consider the environment, take your rubbish with you or place in the bins provided. We want to ensure these beautiful places are still here for our future generations to enjoy.
  • Do not feed the wildlife.
  • Leave nothing but footprints. Take nothing but memories.
