Ironbark walking track is a 4km, grade 4 Circuit hike located in the Conimbla National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 1.5hrs to complete.

Summary

Ironbark walking track is a pleasant 1.5hr looped bushwalk that winds its way along a ridge and up onto a broad flat plateau, which overlooks Cherry Creek. Here, you can stop and admire the scenic views looking out east to Cowra and the mountains and farmlands beyond.
Along the way, you’ll stroll through dry eucalypt forests, ironbark, black cypress pine, scribbly gum, red stringybark and heathlands, all of which hold ample opportunities for birdwatching.
Among the more interesting bird species you might spot here – with the local birdlife being particularly active in the morning – are turquoise and superb parrots, brown treecreepers, grey-crowned babblers, white-fronted chats, and diamond firetails.
In spring, the flowering heath and wildflowers that cover the ground can be quite breathtaking. For a shorter walk, take Wallaby walking track to Wallaby picnic area.
