It is well worth a drive to the Mount Walsh Day Use Area. There are beautiful views of Mount Walsh on the drive in.
The Bluff Walking Track, otherwise referred to as the Summit Walk leaves from the Day Use Area. Starting out as a Class 4 walk it quickly becomes a Class 5 walk. Good fitness is required as this is a tough steep walk. We slogged up and up for a long time but we did not make it all the way. There is little shade on this walk and we made the mistake of attempting it in the middle of the day. We were rewarded with great views over the surrounding countryside. We climbed high enough to observe Peregrine Falcons dart past and Wedge-tailed Eagles glide by.
