If you haven’t done so already, check out our Great South West Walk hiking trail summary or go back to GSWW Section 5 from Fitzroy Camp to Moleside Camp. Else, let us continue on with this sixth section of the Great South West Walk from Moleside Camp to Battersbys Camp.
Continuing along the Glenelg River, elevation gain starts becoming a bit of a concern the further down you get as limestone cliffs start making an appearance. The following hiking trail sections follow the Glenelg River very closely, rising and falling over many of these limestone cliffs.
Boats, canoes, and wake-boarders become more commonplace, as do black cockatoos with a call distinctly different from the white Sulphur-crested Cockatoos.
Battersbys Camp is an overnight walkers camp in Lower Glenelg National Park set on the banks of the Glenelg River among tall eucalypts and blackwoods. The campsite offers shared table, seasonal tank water (treat before drinking), shelter and toilet. A shared fireplace is provided but fuel stoves are preferred by Parks Victoria.[adinserter block=”5″]
