From Starkvale campsite, walk the trail to Shepherd’s Peak for views over the surrounding creeks and peaks of Expedition National Park. The trail continues down from Shepherd’s Peak to the Cattle Dip, Bottlebrush Waterhole, Carlia Gorge, Starkvale Creek and returns to Starkvale campsite.
This trail is not a graded walking track. Take extreme care on top of Shepherd's Peak as there are crevasses and unguarded cliffs. Expect some short, steep grades and rough underfoot surfaces. Sections of this trail are in a watercourse and in Starkvale Creek where no trail construction has been undertaken.
The park is home to several rare plant species including Eucalyptus rubiginosa and Leucopogon grandiflorus. For thousands of years, Aboriginal people lived in this area, leaving behind stencil art and other sacred sites. Listen for the musical calls of grey fantails that twist and turn in impressive insect-catching displays.Visit Website
