Rosewood Creek walking track is a 5.5km, grade 4 Circuit hike located in the Dorrigo National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 1.5hrs to complete.

Summary

Best taken in an anti-clockwise direction, the peaceful Rosewood Creek walking track loops through astonishing World Heritage-listed rainforest, waterfalls, and creeks. Beginning and ending at Never Never picnic area, it offers a moderate walk for a leisurely afternoon.
You’ll pass some of the largest blackbutt and tallowwood trees you’re likely to ever see. The occasional giant stump acts as a reminder of earlier logging history in the area. You’ll also pass through coachwood, crabapple and sassafras trees on your way to Coachwood Falls.
Rosewood Creek offers sparkling pools and cascading waterfalls for budding photographers. Find a shady spot on the bank for a picnic snack, or pull out some binoculars for birdwatching. In spring, the area also blooms with flowering trees such as the famous Dorrigo waratah. To extend your walk, turn at the Red Cedar Falls junction, and return via a spectacular route.
