Harrington’s Track, constructed in 1895 to allow miners to access the upper reaches of the Indi (Murray) river, goes from Bunroy Station to Stony Creek near Tom Groggin Station.

The track follows closely the Indi River early in its length with good views at Higgins Knob. We will camp near Riley’s Memorial or nearby Surveyors Creek. Jack Riley is said to be the inspiration for Banjo Patterson’s poem “The Man from Snowy River”.

Next day, instead of hiking through to Stony Creek this time, we will return to Bunroy Station via the Surveyors Creek and Barlow Break Tracks.

This will be a great introduction to overnight hiking as the first day is about 10 kilometres and the second day about 12 kilometres plus we will see some spectacular country.
