Weeping Rock walking track is a 2km, grade 3 Return hike located in the New England National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 45mins to complete.

Summary

Snaking through Gondwana rainforest and past Antarctic beeches, Weeping Rock walking track takes you directly to the much-admired basalt cliff face. With natural springs directly above it, Weeping Rock has become a lush, moss-covered environment constantly dripping water. During winter, this spectacular rock face is covered in a sheet of ice and individual rivulets of water are transformed into icicles. When it’s not quite so cold, listen for the long, creaking growls of the rare sphagnum frog that lives in cracks in the rock face or burrows into the moss. It’s only a 950m walk to Weeping Rock and back with pockets of both steep and uneven ground. Kids in particular love this walk – caves, fascinating trees, rocks to scramble over and water make it the perfect combination for a fun day out.
