If you haven’t done so already, check out our Great South West Walk hiking trail summary or go back to GSWW Section 6 – Moleside Camp to Battersbys Camp. Else, let us continue on with this seventh section of the Great South West Walk from Battersbys Camp to Pattersons Camp.
There is plenty of information on the Glenelg river in the public campsites which are located nearby the walker campsites which is an interesting read on most accounts.
Section 7 from Battersbys Camp to Pattersons Camp is a shorter 13.5km however elevation gains are somewhat more as we approach Nelson due to limestone cliffs along the Glenelg River. Keep your camera handy as views of the Glenelg River from these limestone cliffs are rather stunning.
Pattersons Camp is an overnight walkers camp in Lower Glenelg National Park set on the banks of the Glenelg River amongst tall eucalypts. 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″]
