Leeaberra Track

10 h, 2 days to 3 days

22.8 km

↑ 985 m
↓ -1373 m

Hard track
The starting point for the Leeaberra Track is Thompsons Marshes at the northern end of the park which can only be reached on foot or via high clearance 4WD. The walk takes you through the gorges and forests of Douglas-Apsley National Park. You’ll be rewarded with views over the Leeaberra and Heritage Falls and perhaps a swim in the pools. The climb to Mount Andrew Saddle is the last obstacle before reaching the end of the track at Apsley River Waterhole. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
