Track Overview

3 Days, 2 Nights - 57KM


Day One – Lake Becking Camping Area to Mount Crozier Camping Area (17KM)


Starting at the Lake Becking Camping Area this walk starts by following the Murray-Sunset Remote Track past lake Becking. Continue to follow this trail for about 5 kilometres until reaching an intersection, one direction (going right) will be the track you take on your return and the other track (going straight forward) is the track towards your first night campsite. Follow this track straight forward through this junction and continue walking until you reach Mount Crozier Camping Area. Booking is not required for this campsite but check with the local ranger first as water tanks placed at campsites may be empty.



Day Two – Mount Crozier Camping Area to Mount Jess Campground (18KM)


On day two of this walk you will walk from Mount Crozier Camping Area to Mount Jess Campground following the same Murray-Sunset Remote Track. Continue walking this track around the ‘p’ shaped loop, on your way to your second campsite you will intersect with two trails, the first being Mapoke Track and the second being Honeymoon Hut Track. Carry on walking the Murray-Sunset Remote Track avoiding these turn offs until you reach your campsite at Mount Jess Campground. This site also does not require booking but once again is best to check with the local ranger first to make sure the water tanks on site are filled.



Day Three – Mount Jess Campground to Lake Becking Camping Area (22KM)


On your third and final day of this walk you will start from Mount Jess Campground walking along the same Murray-Sunset Remote Track.

Take a left back down the same 5 Kilometre stretch you walked on the first day towards Lake Becking Camping Area to conclude your hike.
