Burraga Swamp walking track is a 2km, grade 4 Return hike located in the Barrington Tops National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 45mins to complete.

Summary

Burraga Swamp walking track is a beautiful stroll to an intriguing natural wonder in Barrington Tops National Park, near Chichester State Forest. It’s well worth the effort for dedicated nature enthusiasts to take a tour of this remote wilderness area. Thousands of years ago, a massive landslip occurred off the steep western side of Mount Lumeah. Over the years, the ledge that was formed has filled with sediment, creating a hanging swamp – Burraga.
Today, the delicate grasses and sedges of Burraga Swamp are in sharp contrast to the ancient rainforest of Antarctic beech around it. The organic matter left here over centuries is valuable historical evidence to help us understand and learn about past climate and vegetation.
The walking track itself climbs gently through the beech forest, across a small saddle, and down to the southern edge of the swamp. It’s a great spot for a secluded picnic and some serious photography. Retrace your steps and explore the nearby Williams River region and Williams River picnic area.
