Valley of the Eagles walk is a 5.7km, grade 5 Return hike located in the Gundabooka National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 3hrs to complete.
If you’re heading to Gundabooka National Park, put on your walking shoes and explore Valley of the Eagles walk. You’ll be rewarded with breath taking views of the rugged Mount Gunderbooka, which rises 500m above park.
Pleasure walkers might like to start with the easy path to the base of the mountain, where you’ll find a viewing platform perfect for taking pictures in the golden afternoon light. This short stroll is 1km return, and should take you no more than an hour.
From the viewing platform, the track to the summit is sure to get your heart pumping, but you’ll be rewarded with sweeping 360 degree views of Gundabooka National Park. This is a difficult 5.7km return walk over rocky and very steep terrain, and should only be taken by fit walkers.
Tread quietly while you walk – you’re likely to see and hear a range of birdlife on this lovely walk. And if you’re lucky you might even see a pink cockatoo, so keep your eyes peeled.
