Kinchega Homestead billabong walk is a 2.3km, grade 3 Circuit hike located in the Kinchega National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 1.5hrs to complete.
Starting from the Old Kinchega Homestead carpark, this walk journeys through thick scrub, open sand plains, river red gum forest and wetlands, as it traces the banks of the tranquil billabong.
Learn more about the rich pastoral heritage and Aboriginal culture of the outback while passing through the historic Homestead ruins, and see remnants of ancient Aboriginal sites including scar trees and middens.
Kinchega National Park and its waterways are a magnet for birdlife and native animals, so be sure to keep an eye out for emus, kangaroos, kestrels, galahs and goannas on your way along the billabong to the Darling River. From here, the track loops back to the carpark.
You can also start this walking track from campsite 34 on River Drive.
