About The Adventure
Join us for our latest Pop-up, an Early Morning Hike at the beautifully scenic Yuelarbah Walking Track in Glenrock State Conservation Area!
The hike is approx 7.5km, starting with a raised boardwalk, the scenic track leads you along Flaggy Creek, through wet gullies and coastal rainforest, and if that’s not enough, you'll pass two waterfalls (dependant on rainfall), gorgeous lookouts and the beautiful Glenrock Lagoon. Take some time to take in the sights and sounds of the beach, and then we climb to the top of the hill to see a spectacular view of the beach from above. We'll head back from the beach along the fire trails through the forest. This walk is a moderate track with short steep hills, boardwalks, bush tracks and quite a few steps up and down.
