Day 6 – Granite Beach to South Cape Rivulet
Leaving the spectacular Granite Beach camp area the track returns to the muddy marshes and slowly climbs to Flat Rock Plains on the South Cape Range. Walking here is difficult due to the ever present mud and care should always be taken.
After a few hours of walking the South Cape Range summit is reached. From here the view back towards the Ironbound Range is rewarding, highlighting the area successfully passed in the previous days. As you descend again walking is slow due to the thick overgrown forest and deep muddy sections. Eventually after another small climb and descent, South Cape Rivulet appears through the tree line. Once the shallow rivulet has been waded, camp can be made in under the tree cover further up the rivulet.
