Friends Track (Warby-Ovens National Park)

This self-guided walk starts and ends at Wenhams Camp, with the opportunity of a diversion to Kwat Kwat Lookout via the Peregrine Track (1km return) for excellent views of the Ovens Valley and the Victorian Alps.

The 4.6km Grade 3 loop passes a stand of iconic Grasstrees and through granite hills and forest rich in birdlife and wildflowers in spring. Allow 2 hours.

Mountain bikes are permitted on this track. Cyclists must always give way to walkers and must not ride off the track.

Visitor Tips: The track is hilly in places and a reasonable level of fitness is required. It is a great family walk but not suitable for prams. Wear sturdy footwear and carry plenty of water, especially in hot weather.
