Short and easy Wambelong Nature walking track is big on rewards and ideal for wildlife and birdwatching, just the way nature intended. From Canyon picnic area, this short and easy hike follows Wambelong Creek, offering spectacular views of ancient landscape in Warrumbungle National Park, near Coonabarabran.
Leading through a small, sheltered gorge, you'll gaze across unique rock outcrops and dramatic spires shaped by volcanic activity millions of years ago. While taking in the expansive scenery, keep an eye on the horizon for brown falcons and red winged parrots.
The track rises steeply with an awe-inspiring vista of the valley and Split Rock. Keep your eyes on the treetops and you might spot a koala, or an emu darting through the bush. Kangaroos like to relax in the shade during the heat of the day at nearby Camp Wambelong.
