Dalrymple Gap Track

Grade: Difficult
Distance: 10km
Time: 6 hours

Broadwater gives you access to the southern point of the Dalrymple Gap Track. Walk the whole track and sample it bit by bit and return to the Broadwater camping grounds.

Follow the route of a road built in the 1860s, that in turn roughly followed the track taken by Aboriginal people across the Cardwell Range. The track can be walked in either direction, and is best done as a one-way walk to allow time to enjoy the beauty of Dalrymple Creek and the historic features of the track. You will need to arrange for a vehicle to meet you at the opposite end of the walk. Most walkers find it easier to start the walk from the south as it is a more gradual climb from this direction to the top of Dalrymple Gap.
