Mount Brogden walking track is a 5km, grade 5 Return hike located in the Cocoparra National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 2.5hrs to complete.

Summary

A real nature-lover’s track, this great half-day walk leads you to the lookout at the top of Mount Brogden. As you set out, take a good look at the surrounding native bushland. It’s predominantly white cypress pine, with a smattering of bimble box trees thrown in for good measure. As the track increases in height, however, you’ll notice black cypress pines, Dwyer’s mallee gums and drooping she-oaks becoming more prevalent. Look for the orangey-brown blooms of rusty spider flowers amongst it all, or, better yet, do this walk in spring for an all-encompassing display of wildflowers. Continue hiking up past the rugged ranges, all the while looking out for kangaroos and echidnas, as well as birdwatching enthusiast favourites such as honeyeaters, parrots and glossy black cockatoos. Whether you’re a keen bushwalker, birdwatcher or photographer, you’re bound to be amazed by the view from the top of this scenic walking track. As you take in the patchwork farmland, pretty gullies and Murrumbidgee River tree-line, you’re sure to be planning your next visit to this scenic pocket of south-western NSW.
