Lizard - Steamers panorama by Greg Neill.

News Alert:The National Park containing Blackfellows Knob is currently closed due to fires (past and present). We are in daily contact with the Head Ranger to keep us up to date with conditions and the opening of access to the park, as we do have walks that are planned in this area (Hello Dolly!, The Cavern and Clifftops over Cambanoora). It was/is a low intensity fire and the canopy has not been affected. We were granted access Wed 30th Aug to survey the route the 3 walks take. The fire has burned the steep slope from the management track to near the ridgetop but the top remains untouched at this stage. There is little risk from falling trees as the large hollow ‘chimney’ trees were burnt down. People will need to be alert for any trees/branches in the damaged areas en route to their destination and to be careful of loose rocks and soil, especially on descent where the lack of grass may impact the stability.

Notes for participants:

  • All walkers must have appropriate footwear, gear (including a light first aid kit), water and food. If you are new to bushwalking, check your club’s guidelines.* Walk descriptions will advise any special gear requirements.
  • Please offer drivers reasonable compensation for fuel and wear and tear, based on distance travelled and how many other passengers there are.
  • Some walks require four wheel drives to access. If you don’t have one, talk to the leader.
  • Only walks that attract at least two participants in addition to the leaders will proceed.
  • A “w” after the grade indicates a walk that will have to be cancelled if the weather is too wet.

NB: Please check the Walk Gradings page before nominating for a walk.
