Wonnangatta River Circuit - Alpine National Park

Wonnangatta River Circuit is a challenging, four-day hike into wilderness, requiring good navigational skills (signposts are absent in the declared wilderness areas). From View Point north of Licola, the 42‑kilometre track negotiates the spectacular Crosscut Saw en route to Mount Buggery, and then loops around to Mount Speculation, Mount Despair and The Viking. These peaks may not have cheerful names, but many walkers will discover that this is a must-do trek with great campsites. They include one by the Wonnangatta River and another on the summit of Mount Speculation, where you wake up to magical sunrise vistas.
