Burgoyne Track
About the Track
Track Description

Burgoyne Track runs between Licola Road and Black Range Road.

If you enter from Licola Road, within 200m you encounter \"The Stair Case\".  Caution should be taken as it\'s steep, the loose stones make it slippery, and then to top it off you have the steps.

Once you\'ve made that, it becomes a little easier, until you hit the Macalister River.  The river crossing was washed out in the 2007/08 floods. A new crossing has been made, but check the water depth prior to crossing. Normally 1/2 m.

There are some great camp sites next to the Macalsiter.


cptmud Update:
This track is called burgyones gap track, depending of which way you travel, chose your line on the river crossng as there are some large rocks to one side, but other wise a worth while track to drive

CapMud Update 2:
Very good drive, heading out from the McCalister river we got a stock surf down the staircase. Exit from the McCalister river is becoming very Deteriated

42404 The Stair case was a little tricky, looks like it’s had some maintenance. River crossing was good, still some large rocks to the right side if you’re heading away from Licola rd. Awesome track will be doing it again soon. Here is a link to a video of the river crossing heading away from Licola rd. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uYsK-fSKmLE Isuzu D Max Jan 9, 2014
36771 The old staircase is as hectic as ever. Mcallister was moderate but very doable. Coming out the Thompson side is very cruisy. Toyota Landcruiser Dec 1, 2013

36771 Came in from the west (Black Range Tk), very steep loose decent down to the camping grounds. River was surprisingly lacking a lot of water so that was no trouble. Staircase was a bit loose but no issues, Licola road side is in much better condition and very well used. 2" lift was a great help on this track. Toyota Landcruiser Dec 30, 2012
5887 From Licola Rd to Macalister Gorge. Camped overnight. Then back out to Licola Rd (river was too deep to cross). Was raining almost the entire trip. Descent down staircase a little slippery from the rain and very bumpy with loose rocks. Convoy consisted Maverick (M/T & saggy springs), GU Patrol (M/T & 2"lift), GU Patrol (A/T & stock susp). I am convinced now that this section of this track can be completed in all weather. Family absolutely loved the campsite. Very remote. 2nd trip now though where the sounds of nature were drownd out by loud music unfortunately. Nissan Patrol Oct 1, 2011

5887 Completed track on Sat & Sun (25/6-26/6) from Licola Rd to Macalister River campsite and back. River was too high to cross. Fortunately the tracks were dry and we received no rain. The staircase was looser than on my previous trip in Easter and rockier in general from recent rains and traffic. The Patrols did it easy. Nissan Patrol Jun 25, 2011
5887 Did Licola Rd to campsite and back again. Nissan Patrol Apr 27, 2011
3685 Great track! Awesome views. Nice camping areas at the bottom to choose from. River running too fast after recent rains - decided to come back another day. Enabled us to go back the track - a lot quicker going up. Toyota Prado Feb 24, 2011

10372 Awesome track, steep and rocky. Just bought the Landcruiser and it was a good test. Went from the Licola road end but didn't cross the river, it was too high and didn't have a snorkel. Toyota Landcruiser Jun 23, 2010
