We’ll start walking from Mackey’s lookout. It will save the bulk of the ‘big walk’ up the mountain while allowing us to walk up into that wonderful view across the gorge to the chalet. There is still a climb up to the chalet though.

We’ll then make our way past the underground river and take a side-trip to ‘View point’, past Lake Catani, and then explore the Chalwell galleries circuit (note; the galleries circuit involves a little ladder-work and contortioning – you can wait this section out at Lake Catani if you’d prefer). We’ll then return to the chalet and back the way we came.

We’ll start early due to daylight savings, but there are plenty of good opportunities for short breaks at the lookouts during the day.

You must bring a head-lamp (and check the batteries first), as it’s easy to ‘lose time’ on this walk and we’ll notice the shorter days.

The main risk with this walk will be slipping on rocks and bark/debris.
