About The Adventure
About the Hike:
Join us to explore the lower part of Barrington Tops National Park on our Women Embrace Rocky Crossing Hike. We'll hike listening to the bird song and catching glimpses of the Williams River below us. We’ll make our way up to our lunch spot at Rocky Crossing, stopping along the way to take some short side trips to take in the beautiful surrounds. This walk is through sub-tropical rainforest, with amazing tall red cedars and strangler figs and plenty of opportunities to take a dip in the rock pools. We’ll provide you with lunch and snacks to carry for the walk, and we’ll have some baked goods and a hot drink for afternoon tea in the picnic area at the completion of our hike. We hope you can join us.
