About Carey Brook Walk Trail, Hawke NP
The Carey Brook Walk Trail meanders along the Carey Brook through a forest of peppermint trees to Goblin Swamp. A swamp which earned its name from it knotted roots and bulbous trunks of the gnarled paperbark trees.
The trail starts from Grasstree Hollow Campground and runs past Snotty Gobble Loop Campground. The campsites here are tucked in to the peppermint, jarrah and marri forest and are a great places to base yourself to explore the surrounding area. The crystal clear Carey Brook provides great opportunities for birdwatching.
