Pagoda Lookout walking track is a 2.5km, grade 3 Return hike located in the Wollemi National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 1hr to complete.
Pagoda Lookout walking track is a favourite among day trippers from Rylstone and families staying at Ganguddy-Dunns Swamp campground. It’s a steep climb but the 360-degree views of volcanic remnants and pagoda rock formations are well worth the effort.
The walking track starts at the campground and follows Weir Walk until the sign to Pagoda Lookout. It’s a 120m walk from there to the top of the lookout. Along the way, you’ll be climbing up steep hills and scrambling over low rock ledges, so you’ll need to be fairly fit with a good sense of balance.
From the top, take in the expansive views over the meandering Cudgegong River and stunning pagoda rock formations from the Triassic period. After catching your breath and getting that perfect sunset shot, make your way back down to the campground and keep an eye out for a rare glimpse of Evans grevillea in spring.
There are several other walks that start from Ganguddy-Dunns Swamp campground, taking you further upstream and through the open scribbly gum woodland. You can also enjoy fishing, swimming, boating and kayaking in the Cudgegong River.

This walking track is rough and unformed with steep sections, cliff edges and some difficult rock scrambling, so please take care.
There is no platform or handrail at the lookout, so remember to be careful when you reach the top of the pagoda formations.
