Black Range Trek

About the Walking Route

A demanding trek from Mambray Creek, over the steep Black Range tracks to Grays Hut. From Grays Hut walk to the summit of Mt Remarkable and down to the town of Melrose, or walk along Spring Creek to Goats Rock Camp, making a loop and returning to Mambray Creek over Black Range.

As a challenging trek you will need to plan carefully with a topographic map. An alternative to this hike is the Mambray Creek to Alligator Gorge Hike.
