The Telegraph Track is a 16 kilometre return walk of a difficult grade. Allow six hours to complete this walk. Discover interesting habitats and relics of the old telegraph line. The track goes through several vegetation types including heathland and eucalypt woodland. Look out for the perched swamp found on top of the dune ridge. In spring, the track is lined with heathland flowers. This long track is best walked in winter and spring, or in the early morning during summer. A one-way walk option is to arrange to be dropped off at the end of the Bulwer-Blue Lagoon Road and walk through to Mount Tempest, meeting your lift at the Mount Tempest carpark.
