Once on the Coolgardie Track get ready for a steep climb for roughly 45min (if you're going fast!) to reach the sealed road. Once at the road it's another 15min to the first radio antennas. From here carry on to the last corner before the large antenna and you should see the track re-starting again shooting off the corner of the road.

Between this point and Mt Davy, it is a mix of small alpine bush and derelict rocky open tops. Keep your jacket handy along here! About 100m from the top of Mt Davy you should see the snow poles heading down towards the ocean and Runanga. Follow these and you should in no time be down at the Rewanui Incline road. Turn left and head out to Runanga.

  • Access

    When parked at the Taylorville side of the Historic Brunner Mine site walk to the side of the road and look up the hill to your right. You should see an opening in the bush, enter here and continue up the hill. About five minutes into the trail you should come across a blue peg. Turn left here. This peg marks that start of the Coolgardie Track that you will be following until you reach the sealed road.

    Park on the Taylorville side of the river at the historic Brunner Mine site.

  • Staying Safe


    - Turn left at the blue peg.
    - On the track, there are some side trails, my advice is always to take the track that is heading upwards and you'll be fine.
    - Once at the sealed road turn right and head upwards.
    - On the last corner before the big antenna, you should see the track restarting.
    - Track from here to Mt Davy is hard to follow in some places, so take care and if in doubt turn back.
    - About 100m before the summit of Mt Davy follow that snow poles downwards towards Rewanui.
    - Turn left when you reach the Rewanui Incline gravel road.

    Generally good.

    Lightweight fleece top, Long-sleeved thermal top, Seam-sealed waterproof jacket, Windproof jacket, Whistle, First aid kit, Extra food for emergencies, Survival bag, Cellphone, Map.

    Some small mountain creeks.

    Cold wind once out on the tops during most of the year.

    The cold wind is very annoying and rough terrain especially on the way down makes it easy for someone to roll their ankle.
