The Shirt tail track: Took as maybe 1hour return.We did it after a few days of heavy rain so it was really muddy! We needed to cross the waterfall so took off our shoes and just finished the walk up to the viewpoint barefoot. Would actually recommend doing it barefooted! Great walk and totally worth it! But really steep as well



The shirtail track :45 min return. Very steep descent at the bottom and awesome viewpoint!



Shirt tail track: 1.5h return. A little bit steep but awesome viewpoint!
