Apsley Gorge Rim walking track is a 1.2km, grade 2 Circuit hike located in the Oxley Wild Rivers National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 45mins to complete.
The Apsley Gorge Rim walking track packs a lot of scenic views into one short walk. With waterfalls and rugged ravines, you’ll be spoilt for scenic views of this dramatic falls country in the Northern Tablelands.
Perfect for wildlife and birdwatching, look for brush-tailed rock wallabies as you gaze across upper Apsley Gorge. Circling above, you may be lucky and see a wedge-tailed eagle cruising the thermals or even a peregrine falcon nesting on the distant rocky outcrops.
Head back for lunch at the Apsley Falls picnic area, before getting back on the road. If you’re in no hurry, you can stay overnight at the Apsley Falls campground.
