Trip Intention Form

It's a good idea to let someone know where you're going. Fill in a trip intention form to send important details about your trip to your emergency contact.

Please note
  • The track is accessed via Ironbark picnic area, which has a small dirt carpark, but it’s not recommended for low-clearance 2WD vehicles.
  • There is a tethering post for horses here.

Branching off Mount Olive trail, Hominy Creek walking track is a picturesque detour which would make any postcard jealous. The track is lined with ferns and partially shaded by majestic eucalypts, so it’s the ideal place to stroll and also to have a picnic.

Along the track, you'll have the opportunity to stop and witness the beauty of Emerald Pool. The areas around this creek are picturesque, and it's the perfect habitat for the green and golden bell frog, as well as the red-crowned toadlet.
