The wilder untamed region of the Morton National Park is the Ettrema wilderness, an area not nearly as well trodden as the more familiar Buddawangs section and because of this wilder side you largely have the place to yourself. We will follow the supremely beautiful Ettrema Creek along its twisted route with plenty of time to swim in any number of the enticing pools along the way. On our second day we ascend Myall Creek which has an abundance of stunning cascades before a shortish scrub bash back to the Touga Road. Lots of rock hopping and rock scrambling on the last days climb up Myall Creek.
