Boronia Peak Walk


It was time to get out and explore again.  We free camped nearby to Halls Gap and decided the Boronia Peak walk would be good to do as we had not done it for at least 25 years.  Looking at our old maps even the track has been re-routed but not all that upgraded.  This time we left from the Brambuk Cultural Centre, which was unfortunately closed, so no coffee to start our trek.
From Brambuk it was an easy 1 kilometre walk on a groomed track to the  end of  Tandara Road where we took the track to meet up with the Boronia Trail and a bit further on we hit the Boronia Peak Track, which is the real start of the walk.  The peak lookout is a 5 km return walk, with a bit of rock scrambling at the end.
Unfortunately when we finally arrived at the top it started to rain and this continued until we got back to the car.
In general, the walk is uphill all the way there and then downhill all the way back.
