Description:

Mainly firetrail, with some great views over Cowan Creek. Brilliant wildflowers in Spring, including Waratahs which should be in full bloom in mid September. The offtrack from Duffys Wharf to Slades Lookout is a short section up a steep 160m climb which is really a rough pad with a couple of scrambles. The alternative is the equally steep return up the Duffys Wharf Track. The firetrails – Cullamine, Perimeter Track and Long Tracks – have recently (Winter 2022) been regraded and are not too hard on the feet.
