Chandler View circuit walk is a 6km, grade 3 Circuit hike located in the Oxley Wild Rivers National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 2.5hrs to complete.

Summary

Accessed from Long View campground and picnic area, moderately challenging Chandler View circuit walk offers the chance to get up close to and experience the unique dry rainforest that has put Oxley Wild Rivers National Park on the map.
The medium length track leads through dry rainforest where you might see the delicate rock orchids and felt ferns that only grow in these conditions. The track opens out, following gorge ridges dotted with yellow box and silvertop stringybark.
Take a break at Chandlers lookout and take in the scenic views over the river. Bring your binoculars for wildlife and birdwatching. Brush-tailed rock wallabies and peregrine falcons live in the nearby rocky outcrops and wedge tailed eagles often cruise the thermals above the ridges.
