Mt Richmond Forest Park - Captains Creek Hut

Not an over night stay walk, just a hut bag on the way home from Cullens creek hat bag, heading into Captains Creek hut for a tranquil river side evening meal.
Just about at road end
Cruising lite means the DOCware times are way off.
DOC Information
A very nice river side walk with a small two or three hundred meter climb, GPS location dosn't match quite a bit of the track.
Pelorous River
Beautiful clear pools
Occasional views of the ranges
Emerald Pools area.

Lots of people at the hut, many camping and a full hut, glad I’m not staying. Enjoyed my dinner at the riverside, even though a few sandflies had me for dinner.
Dinner at the river
One wee swing on the walk, crossed on way out as light was fading.
Swing bridge
Good easy fast walk out, getting dark, got to the end without a torch, tripped on roots and kicked a few stone though!
