Forest walking track – Gibraltar National Park is a 3.5km, grade 3 Return hike located in the Gibraltar Range National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 1.5hrs to complete.

Summary

Forest walking track is a short, easy, and ever-changing track. Begin by hiking through open dry eucalypt forest before being plunged into rainforest, and then emerging onto an open granite outcrop called Lyrebird Rock. So much variation in such a short distance.
Plants and animals that live on and around the park’s granite outcrops, such as Lyrebird Rock, are more protected from bushfire than the creatures that inhabit the forests. However, they are exposed, day and night, to the elements: rain, wind, sun, and even snow sometimes over winter.
Forest walking track is only a short distance from Mulligans Hut, where resident wallabies graze, and Little Dandahra Creek, which is a great place for a swim on a hot day – especially after a walk.
