Information

Dalrymple Gap walking track follows the road built in the 1860s by the early settlers roughly following the route taken by Aboriginal people across the Cardwell Range. Make your way across multiple creek crossings, through the cool rainforest and open eucalypt forest. The full track is 10.6km one way with the option of a shorter loop track. More Info see AllTrails. Track length including return 18km. A nice hike through wilderness rainforest with fun rock hopping creek crossings and historical evidence. This trail used to be the only inland pass for many kilometers in either direction and was used by bullock teams, lumberjacks and couriers. Of special note is the beautiful bridge near the coastal end and remaining evidence of rocks spread along track to provide traction for bullock teams up and down slopes. Can be quite muddy and creek crossings will require balance or shoes off.This trail is great for hiking.
