Exhilarating Goorgana walking track will, quite literally, take the most experienced mountain hikers to new levels. Taking in some of the most iconic peaks in the rugged western terrain in Nightcap National Park, this steep, challenging track is definitely not for the faint-hearted.
This unmarked track leads from the lookout along Pholis Gap walking track and is best-suited to small groups of highly-skilled bushwalkers who can confidently navigate without directional signage. Taking in Mount Nardi, there are spectacular views to Wollumbin-Mount Warning in the north.
Goorgana walking track has overgrown patches, a maze of old logging tracks, and steep slopes which will challenge even the most skilled walkers. This World Heritage rainforest is teeming with wildlife for you to see, including peregrine falcons, long-nosed potoroos and pademelons.
