The Corker Trail

Corker by name, a corker by nature.

It’s not called Corker Trail for nothing. This is a high altitude, high-octane adventure walk for fit & experienced bushwalkers in the rugged mountain country of Barrington Tops National Park. This challenging track follows the ridgeline from Lagoon Pinch picnic area to Careys Peak on the Barrington Plateau.

It won’t just be the scenery that will take your breath away. Winding through a variety of vegetation, from tall open woodlands to lush rainforest & cool temperate stands of Antarctic beech, your vigorous effort will be rewarded with brilliant views near Corker Mountain.

On a clear day you can the golden sands of Stockton sand dunes 95km away to the south east. So if you’re at Carey Peaks after a snowfall event, then you’ll have the most unique mountain experience on the Australian mainland: a view from snow gums to sand.

After that, the expansive snow gum woodlands, grassy plains, & swamps of the Barrington Tops plateau will roll out before you.
