About this place
The track follows the path taken by Captain Theo Fawcett, who blazed a trail through the forest in the 1800’s. Much of it runs along old rail embankments, where trains once hauled timber from the forests.
The track begins at Dawn Creek Road near Nanga Mill and ends at Quindanning. It is not designated as one-way and can also be completed in the opposite direction beginning at Quindanning. It is wide enough in places for cautious passing.
There are picnic places along the track but camping is not permitted.
The track may be closed following heavy rainfall.
- Distance: 105km one way
- Time: Allow 3 hours
- Difficulty: Moderate to difficult
The track is suitable for medium to high clearance vehicles with dual range and all terrain tyres, for drivers with reasonable experience or 4WD training, travelling in groups of vehicles.
