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.
About the region
Oxley Wild Rivers National Park, part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area features rare dry rainforest, dramatic gorges and waterfalls, extensive wilderness areas, wild and scenic rivers and an amazing array of wildlife. It's best explored as a scenic drive along the Waterfall Way.
Explore the Apsley Macleay Gorges, one of Australia’s largest gorge systems with incredible ridge top views and visit Wollomombi, the highest waterfall in NSW and a place sure to lift your spirit. Bushwalkers will love the multi-day Green Gully walk that takes in the park’s spectacular landscape and includes overnight accommodation in heritage-listed stockman’s huts. For those seeking heritage accommodation that is slightly more luxurious, East Kunderang Homestead is sure to impress.
