Culmaran Valley track is a 2.5km, grade 3 Circuit hike located in the Richmond Range National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 1.5hrs to complete.

Summary

Starting at Cambridge Plateau picnic area, Culmaran Valley track descends steeply through towering tree trunks with broad leaves to a bridge over Culmaran Creek. This medium difficulty walk then climbs and skirts around the crest of the valley through world heritage subtropical rainforest, where 200 identified plant varieties dwell.
The scents, hues and scenery then change into the wonderful, moist, painter’s palette of subtropical rainforest; jumbled tree roots, giant vines looping across water streaked tree branches and enormous thriving rainforest trees including strangler figs and yellow carabeens.
