Lyrebird walking track is a 5.5km, grade 3 circuit hike, located in the New England National Park, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 3hrs to complete.

Hike Summary

Lyrebird walking track is a 5.5km circuit walk through New England National Park that takes walkers through an enchanting range of environments, including eucalypt forest and cool temperate rainforest, along basalt cliffs and past babbling brooks, historic signposts, waterfalls and colourful heath. Marvel at a constantly changing feast of expansive views. At dawn, valley-mist swirls like a white lake between the higher peaks and rises to embrace early morning walkers. Immerse yourself in the ancient Gondwana where the calls of the superb lyrebirds may be heard echoing up and down the valleys, especially in winter when the males’ mating calls reach a crescendo. King parrots and crimson rosellas swerve through the treetops whilst yellow-tailed black cockatoos screech into the valleys below. Rufous and grey fantails are also intriguing to watch as their tails are splayed and angled to manoeuvre quickly after flying prey. If you’d prefer a shorter walk, return to Banksia Point via Tree Fern Valley (1.5km). This walk also links to Eagles Nest walking track (7km) or Wrights lookout walking track and Cascades walking track (9.3km).
