Spicers Mt Mistake Farmhouse to Spicers Amphitheatre Eco Camp
If the sky is clear we highly recommend watching the sunrise from the escarpment.
7:00am – breakfast served, with tea and coffee available earlier. Note: times may vary depending on weather & conditions and your guides will notify you the night before of any changes.
After breakfast you will pack your luggage and make your final preparations for the day. Your guides will provide you with your lunches, show you where to refill your water bottles before departing.
8:00am – walk out of camp saying farewell to your hosts who will transfer your luggage to the next camp. Note: departure time may also vary depending on when breakfast is served.
Trail – today’s walking distance is approx. 18km on mostly a Grade 3 trail – formed track with some obstacles. There will be short steep hills and steps, with the final hour of the day spent on a Grade 5 trail – unformed track, likely to be very rough, steep and unmarked.
The walk starts with a meandering climb where you’ll see evidence of the 2019 bushfires. Today you’ll have your first Gondwana Rainforest encounter, a taste of what’s to come. As we emerge from the rainforest we follow a former logging trail, some sections aren’t under canopy so in the warmer temperatures we take plenty of water breaks. In the final section of the day we step deep into the rainforest on a private Grade 5 track that takes us into camp.
Greeted with afternoon tea and a cool beverage on the Amphitheatre viewing deck, our friendly hosts eagerly await your arrival. Your hosts will take you up to your treehouse like cabin giving you an orientation and briefing for the incredible camp you now find yourself in.
There are two communal wash pavilions and after a well earned shower you are welcome to make your way to the lounge to relax. Sunset at the viewing deck is highly recommended
6:00pm – daily briefing before dinner.
You may wish to leave the tilt door in your cabin open overnight (there is a fly screen) and enjoy the sounds of the forest.
