Kaputar Plateau walk is a magnificent and varied 8km walking track set deep in the heart of Mount Kaputar National Park. It's a great walk for budding bushwalkers and avid birdwatchers keen to enjoy the wide open spaces and dramatic mountain ranges of North West NSW, near Narrabri.
Enjoy a taste of early Australian pioneer history whilst walking along the original 'pioneer's track' from Coryah Gap to Dawsons Spring.
Venture through a range of landscapes and vegetation before arriving at Euglah Rock with spectacular scenic views of Camels Hump and Mount Coryah. Experienced rock climbers can test themselves on nearby cliffs while mountain bikers can ride this moderately difficult trail.
