Mount Etna trail (Grade: medium)
Distance: 2.4km return
Time: allow 1hr
Details: Located in the Mount Etna section of the national park, expansive views of Limestone Ridge, the historic Pilkington Quarry and old mine workings feature strongly on this walk. Experience limestone landscapes before and after mining from Bench 9. The 1.2km track uphill to Bat Cleft is quite strenuous with many steps. Only relatively fit people should attempt this walk or join the Bat Cleft tour. Walk in the cooler months or early morning to avoid the heat. The track is closed to independent visitors during the bats’ breeding season from 1 November to the end of February. During this time, it is accessible only on a ranger-led guided tour (operating from early December to mid February).

The Mount Etna trail is not suitable for strollers or prams.

Lots of steps.

To arrange Bat Cleft ranger-guided tour bookings contact +617 4936 0570 (work hours) or 0429 630 923 (after hours).

If you choose to go caving, always go in groups of at least three people, including an experienced caver, and make sure there are at least three torches within your group.
