Culmaran loop trail is a 0.4km, grade 2 circuit hike, located in the Richmond Range National Park, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 30mins to complete.
This short easy walk along the edge of the rainforest environment is especially suited to families and older people.
Here, you’ll brush past the smooth bright trunks of enormous Sydney blue gums. Soft green bracken ferns fringe the walking track, while creamy white flowers of clematis and flowering wonga vines make for a lovely accompaniment. The soaring forest, with its many hollow limbs, provides the perfect daytime resting spot for a range of animals and birds, so be sure to bring your binoculars.
Culmaran loop trail provides a fantastic introduction to the vegetation in the drier parts of Richmond Range, and a very pretty walk in the forest.
