Junction walk is a 7km, grade 4 Return hike located in the Kwiambal National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 1.5hrs to complete.
Junction walk leaves from Lemon Tree Flat campground, making it a convenient opportunity to strike out into the white cypress pines for a relaxing day walk. Bring your camera, swimmers and a packed lunch – there are good picnic spots along the way, and the walk approaches small beaches ideal for a summer dip.
The main destination is the junction of Severn and Macintyre River. There’s also The Dungeon, a deep river gorge that becomes a churning tunnel of water after rainfall. It can be seen safely from a rocky outcrop above the river, and a one-kilometre sidetrack takes you to the top of the gorge for an even more scenic Dungeon lookout. Be sure to wear sturdy shoes.
At first glance, you won’t see too many animals in the area beyond wild goats hopping up the rocky ravines. Look closer though: in the right season there are desert tree frogs, geckos and monitors, turquoise parrots, squirrel gliders and possums. The area is also well-suited to birdwatching.
