Mt Barney Retreat offers 4WD tracks for the capable driver.
The tracks have not been designed for four wheel driving but as access tracks to used in the management of bush fires. We don't profess to be a 4WD park but we do offer the tracks that allow the beginner, planning a future adventure to gain some confidence and experience. The tracks can also offer the more experienced drivers a chance to refine their skills.
Though not independently assessed the tracks are graded from an easy drive to a challenging drive. The terrain surrounding Mt Barney Retreat is not easily accessible - especially after rain.
Mt Barney Retreat is fortunate to be surrounded by national park, and adjacent to some of the most spectacular walks in a pristine World Heritage wilderness area.
Located 750m above sea level, this gives guests unrivaled and fast access to the Focal Peak caldera, the remnants of an ancient range of volcanoes, and to the Gondwana Rainforest.
