Southern Ranges: Day One

Mystery Creek to Moores Bridge

From Mystery Creek, pay respects at the shrine of decomposing leather boots and follow buried tramway to the abandoned limestone quarry.

Climb through forest and brush the first pandani. Cross a cutting grass plain and reach Moonlight Flats. From Bullfrog Tarns ghost bones ranging up toward the Hill One skyline.

Hug the rocks around until the ranges open up on gaining the western side.

With a heavy pack, run out of legs cresting Hill Two. Sidle down Hill Three to the northwest to make camp on Moores Bridge, overlooking the massive ampitheatre of the Lune canyon.

Approximate walking time and distance: 9 hours, 12km
