I parked in the large car park just up from Big Bend and walked up the road for about 500 metres to the corner and left the road here and walked past the old skating rink and walked in a SSE direction to reach the South Wellington track. This section consisted of boulder hopping and low heathy scrub and was generally okay. The day had started off a little cloudy up here but the clouds soon lifted and it became an almost perfect day.

This was a great walk as long as you don't mind rock hopping. I don't mind at all as I prefer that to scrub bashing anyday.
