Hike Summary

Hiking Castle Rocks walk has its rewards. Not only will you be breathing in the fresh air of Munghorn Gap and getting fit, but superb scenic views await you when you reach the end. From the lookout, you'll see some of the amazing sandstone pagoda features found throughout the park.
As you follow this walking route, you'll notice that the eucalypt and native pine bushland around you is teeming with birdlife. See how many different types you can spot while birdwatching during your hike. Also, remember to look carefully in the trees and on the ground for signs of nests, which are as varied as the birds themselves. Some even live in tree trunks, in the hole left behind when an old branch drops off.
