Hike Summary

Jacks Creek walking track gives your bushwalking a twist with the intriguing, varied habitats of Cocoparra National Park. Setting out from Jacks Creek picnic area, you'll explore a vast gorge, walking through sheltered gullies and along exposed ridges. Three lookouts give scenic views of the gorge and surrounding landscape. After rain, the gorge is alive with running water, accompanied by frog song.
Look out for a variety of woodland birds overhead, peregrine falcons roosting in the cliffs and flying through the gorge, and white-winged choughs nesting above the tables in the picnic area. Look carefully at those shadows in the rock caves - they may be hiding swamp wallabies keen to avoid the heat of the day.
