Murrumbooee Cascades walking track is a 6km, grade 4 return hike, located in the Gibraltar Range National Park, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 1.5hrs to complete.
Walk the banks of Little Dandahra Creek, through eucalypt forest and rainforest, and arrive at a creek junction that narrows to where Murrumbooee Cascades plunge over the edge of the escarpment. This is the site of entrepreneur Bill Mulligan’s second weir, built in the 1920s, to measure waterflow from his proposed hydro-electric scheme. Keep an eye out along the way for lyrebirds, which inhabit the rainforest, and listen for the rare rufous scrub-bird. Binoculars will come in handy if you enjoy birdwatching.
During warmer weather, the crystal clear waters of Murrumbooee Cascades are an ideal place for a swim. Pack a picnic and spend a few hours in this superb section of Gibraltar Range National Park with family and friends, or just take some time out from everyone and everything.
