Description

A small isolated boulder field North of Bells Rapids, in a picturesque location. The approach is long and the area's potential is limited, but on the slopes of the hillside, there are a few projects and boulders that could possess some hidden gems.

Access issues

Access is through Bells Rapids Park and Jumbuck Hill Park. Respect the local vegetation.

Approach

Approach from the carpark is around 40 minutes.

Park at the Bells Rapids carpark, cross the Bridge and follow the obvious hiking trail North. There will be a junction where the path forks (-31.770608, 116.064346), with one path going North-West, away from the river, and another continuing directly North. Stick to the North path, keeping the river on your right.

Alternatively, an easier route is to descend to the lower track that runs along the riverbank. This is flatter and cuts out a lot of elevation gain and descent, however, you'll eventually need to reconnect to the higher track.

Either way, head North and follow follow the trail for 30 minutes until you reach a second junction at (-31.755020, 116.066803). From here, you should be able to see the boulders on the hill to your left.

At the second junction, continue North for 5 minutes. At a bend in the path, just before a gully with a dried-up creek there will be a cairn (-31.752948, 116.066881). From here, head directly West, off the hiking trail, uphill for 5 minutes. You'll arrive at the 'Goat Boulder'.
