Ngiyampaa walking track is a 4km, grade 4 circuit hike, located in the Mount Grenfell Historic Site, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 1.5hrs to complete.

Hike Summary

It’s worth the extra effort to hike along the range to the summit of Mount Grenfell, where you’ll find Choy trig station on Ngiyampaa walking track. There are expansive scenic views from the top across this otherwise flat landscape, and along the way are opportunities to see unusual rock formations and mallee trees. Enjoy a picnic lunch at a rocky lookout point at the top. The vast, arid country you can see out there is the traditional land of Ngiyampaa Wangaaypuwan people, who have a long and enduring relationship with this place.
While you’re walking, keep an eye out for red and grey kangaroos. Emus still pace the land like prehistoric sentinels and you’ll see them recorded in the rock art on the way to this track. When the weather’s warmer, geckos, snakes, shinglebacks and bearded dragons will emerge to soak up the sun. Keep your binoculars handy for birdwatching.
