As usual, I was late getting on the trail. An hour late. I knew today was going to be a long hike – I reckoned ten miles or so, but my objective was to get to the Slabtown Overlook. And then depending on the time either camp by Big Paddy Creek, or Ideally, make it all the way back to Little Paddy Creek on the shortcut. So as I put it to myself, it was time to pour the coal on. And I did.

By 1p.m. I was at the overlook. The view from the Slabtown Overlook was very impressive. I thought there was a cave near here. I had a good look around, but I couldn’t find it, so I’ll have to do some more research and come back. Maybe I’ll drive next time 🙂

The access to the overlook is not obvious. There is a sign, but the writing on it has completely faded away. It’s a dirt (and muddy) track, so I wouldn’t recommend that any low clearance vehicles attempt to drive down to the overlook.
