Western Arthurs Day 7 : Haven Lake - Mt. Scorpio - Promontory Lake

Western Arthur Range Index

Lakes Galore


It was dawn of the seventh day and breaking camp had become an established routine - a change clothes, coffee, a visit the privy, and some breakfast, before replenishing my water supply and packing my bag. Once I was ready to set off, I made my way along the trail and continued up the hill for approximately 100 metres Eastwards towards the viewpoint that was located on the saddle. I turned left here to continue along the main track instead of turning right, which would have taken me on the 2-3 hours return trip to the summit of Mt. Aldebaran (elevation : 1107m) and continued on past the magnificent views. Read more

Western Arthurs Day 6 : High Moor - Beggary Bumps - Haven Lake

Western Arthur Range Index

The Beggary Bumps


We set off from High Moor at 10:00 that day, very glad that the storm had finally subsided. After clearing camp, we walked South-Eastwards along the wooden walkway, past the toilet, and began the short climb onto the ridge above us. When we reached the top, we were greeted by spectacular views of the lakes as the ridge ran above and between the two lakes of Lake Saturn and Lake Ganymede, with the former on the left and the latter on the right (travelling Eastwards).

Western Arthurs Day 4 : Lake Oberon – High Moor

Western Arthur Range Index

Lake Oberon


We left the Lake Oberon campsite at 09:00 the next morning, still completely oblivious to the hidden beauty that surrounded us. We made our way back up the junction towards the base of Mt. Orion (elevation : 1151m), but took the path on the right that snaked up and around the lake instead. The path continued along the ridge, then dropped down once again past a smaller tarn on the upper tier and to the flat saddle between Mt. Orion and Mt. Pegasus. Read more

Western Arthurs Day 3 : Lake Cygnus - Lake Oberon

Western Arthur Range Index

White Out!


The original plan had us pushing past Lake Cygnus and on to Lake Oberon on the same day but the inclement weather that had suddenly rolled in had forced us to stop at the Lake Cygnus campsite instead. We ended up taking our sweet time getting ready that morning, knowing that we only had about half a day of hiking ahead of us, and set off around 10:00, unperturbed despite the weather still remaining gloomy and the rain intermittent. We made the steep climb North-West back up to the junction and turned right to follow the main track as it continued East along the crest of the range. Read more

Western Arthurs Day 2 : Junction Creek - Lake Cygnus

Western Arthur Range Index

Across the Buttongrass Plains


We left Junction Creek at 09:00 the next morning and turned right along the Port Davey track at the junction that lay just to the South of the camp. The soft and diffused sunlight that morning was very pleasant, but the trail still remained very muddy. It lead to another river crossing approximately 1 kilometre in, before leading to elevated wooden platforms that lined the track as it crossed the muddy, flat buttongrass plains heading West.

Monkey Madness!


I woke up pretty early that day so after purchasing two cans of Birdee robusta coffee (THB20 each), I made my way over to West Railay to pass the time. There are several ways to get across with most of them passing through alleys and paths until they merge with Walking Street. They are used quite frequently by both tourists and the locals alike and almost everyone can direct you if you have any uncertainties. Read more
