Mt Staplyton Walk


This was a great walk when we did it some 20 years ago.  This time we noted the walk was 2 km shorter for some reason, I assume after the fires the Rangers re-routed the track.  And yes, this was the answer, the first part was the same but the last part was quite different from what we remembered.  Surprisingly, rock climbers seemed to be everywhere as we walked the track this time.
Anyway it's a tough walk, but worth it; great views.
