Molly O’Neill nature track is a 0.3km, grade 2 One Way hike located in the Bungonia National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 45mins to complete.

Summary

Molly O’Neill was an amateur botanist who passionately dedicated herself to exploring and researching what was, at the time, Bungonia Reserve and is now Bungonia National Park. It is only fitting, therefore, that a walking track has been named in her honour.
Take your time along this short track to read the interpretive signage and see what you can learn about some of the plants native to the park. Enjoy the wildflowers during spring and keep your binoculars handy to look at the wildlife whose habitats you’re passing through. During daylight hours, you’re most likely to see wallaroos, wallabies, kangaroos, goannas and lyrebirds. At night, you may get a glimpse of a glider and you will almost certainly see possums.
The track passes through the park’s typical eucalyptus woodland with limestone outcrops and ends, with a flourish at The Lookdown lookout. For a longer hike try the Green track.
