Yango walking track is a 6km, grade 4 circuit hike, located in the Yengo National Park, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 3hrs to complete.
Following a former logging trail, Yango walking track travels for 6km through some of the most pristine and picturesque wilderness in Yengo National Park. In parts, the track can be a little rough and there are some steep sections, but tackling them ensures ample rewards, such as views of the unique geology and surrounding sandstone landscape.
Along the way, you’ll be able to see the rare velvet wattle, which flourishes in this part of the world. On the sheltered southern side of Mount Yengo, you’ll also pass through a small section of rainforest, with red cedars and giant stinging trees.
The best time to tackle the walk is in autumn or spring when conditions are mild. Don’t forget to bring your camera or binoculars – there’ll be plenty of opportunities for photography or birdwatching along the way.
