Additional Information

Toilets at the start, middle, and end of the tour.
No National Park entry fees apply.
There is ample parking and check in will be next to the main carpark at Chidley Reserve.
This hike is considered grade one as the trail follows a bitumen track for most of the way, so it is wheelchair friendly, however the distance of 9km with some undulating gradient makes it a true grade 2.
No-shows and cancellations received within 48 hours of hike departure will incur a 100% cancellation fee.

Cancellations within 2-7 days prior will incur a 50% cancellation fee. Cancellations received over 7 days in advance will receive a full refund or credit towards another hike experience. Please note that Rezdy fees are non refundable. Guests can transfer their booking to a friend with no penalty but must advise The Hike Collective so we can forward all booking information to the new attendee.

If The Hike Collective cancels an event due to weather or danger in any way, your ticket will automatically be moved to the new date, or you will be eligible to transfer amounts paid to another tour or receive a full refund.
