Go through the locked pole gate. On the pole gate is a sign “Bach Access”. At the gate is the first of the white marker posts with green bands on.

Note: 100m past the main notice board and ranger contact phone, near the north end of the main car park.

Travel straight ahead across the picnic area (approx: 30m) to the first white marker post with green band. Then turn to the left (north) following the white marker posts with green bands, down the centre of the picnic area to the bach (approx: 380m). Go through the wooden gate into the bach grounds. Note: Stay close to and follow the white marker posts with green bands for public safety and to avoid wet/soft ground conditions. Drive very slowly (max 10km/h).
