About Honey Hakea Track, Karijini National Park
The Honey Hakea Track is a fantastic alternative for those who do not feel confident to tackle the Grade 5 Mt Bruce Summit Trail.
Leaving from the Mt Bruce car park the trail takes you past Marandoo View where you can see down into the workings of the Marandoo iron ore mine, before continuing on up the ridge of Mt Bruce. The trail steadily climbs uphill and is clearly marked.
There is a second vantage point at the end of the Honey Hakea Track with stunning views of the the Mt Bruce summit and surrounding hills. From here on the Mt Bruce Summit Trail gets increasing steep and more difficult.
Mt Bruce is known as Punurrunha to the local aboriginal people.
The best months to hike this trail are May to August when the temperature is cooler. Remember your hat and plenty of drining water before heading out.
