Palm Grove walk is a 1km, grade 5 return hike, located in the Willi Willi National Park, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 45mins to complete.

Hike Summary

This easy walk takes about 30 minutes, and begins from the scenic Wilson River picnic area. You may be lucky to see spotted-tailed quolls and wallabies darting among the smooth barked blue gum trees. Trail markers and information boards also guide the way to Tinebank Creek.
With the thermostat a little lower, spring and autumn are a lovely time of year to visit. The walk is flat and designed for an easy stroll through lush sub-tropical rainforest and blue gums, delivering you to the Glade picnic spot beside Wilson River - an ideal place to refresh with a dip in the pristine creek.
In summer, for those preferring a longer challenge, Waterfall walk also begins from Wilson River picnic site and passes close to a magnificent strangler fig tree, before descending to a waterfall and refreshing plunge pool where you can cool off before making your journey back.
