Old Man’s Head.
A must for every visitor to Killiecrankie! Take a close-up look at one of the most majestic bays in Bass Strait. Easy Walking, the Killiecrankie Creek is best negotiated at low tide – very high tides with heavy rains will make the creek crossing hazardous! Over summer the creek may not be flowing.
Rock hoppers can make their way around the coast to the superlative sandy cove known as Stacky’s Bight. A great spot for a swim!
Alternatively, pick up the Quion Road (private property- permission should be sought from the Quion manager) and follow this throughto Stacky’s Bight. The area just south of Old Man’s Head is also private property but you are welcome to walk in this area as long as you leave things as you find them and vegetation is not disturbed. Stop at Diamond Gully and scratch around for the Killiecrankie Diamond or Topaz!
This walk will take you 2 hours return, 8km.
