Chandler walking track is a 3km, grade 5 Return hike located in the Oxley Wild Rivers National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 1.5hrs to complete.
For a scenic short walk to take in the spectacular gorge country, try Chandler walking track at Wollomombi Falls picnic area, in Oxley Wild Rivers National Park. The track doesn’t lead to Chandler River anymore, due to erosion, however the brilliant views from Checks lookout are not to be missed.
From Wollomombi lookout, gaze across the spectacular waterfall where water plunges dramatically into the ravine below. From here, the track leads through woodlands of stringybarks and blackbutts. Another lookout lets you gaze across the maze of gorges and valleys.
It’s great for birdwatching, so look out for honey eaters and lorikeets. Wedge-tailed eagles and peregrine falcons often surf the thermals rising off the steep cliffs.
