After the long walk to Marchant Hill we made it to Eke Hill later in the afternoon only taking the wrong track once. Bendleby Ranges property is a mecca for camping and 4×4 holiday stays with accommodation . You can bush camp or stay in Sheerers Quarters or a Bungalow it has many choices and with many Summits in the area I will stay here next time I activate.
This is Eke hill from the parking area with a real adventure walk up along this creek, It turns into a cascade type creek and interesting way to make it to the ridge nearer the top
We lost the walking trail for a while but it was obvious once we got out of the canyon as the Stone Cairn was easy to see .
Hugh keeps track of all our walks on his trusty old GPS .
No 2m simplex contacts this time bit far out from my local friends mobile phone works some of the time.
We finally made the top and that is Marchant Hill way off in the distance our morning activation.
These cairns are a work of art and are on all these summits, a lot of work
and effort went into building then some time in the 1800’s.
Hugh working the pile up

Great view south .Thanks Jane and Warren for letting us use your tracks and hills at no cost .
