    Don’t be fooled by the short distance of the walk - it’s tougher than you think. We follow well marked tracks following Florabella Creek and onto Glenbrook Creek. The walk is essentially Warrinoo to Blaxland via the Valley and will take about 4 hours. Please note this will be an unsurveyed walk but we will have maps and won't get lost - I promise.
