Zig-Zag Railway Walk is a 4.6km, grade 3 Return hike located in Wollemi National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 1 hrs 45 mins to complete.


With a steam train ride from the end of the walk back to the start the Zig-Zag Railway Walk is a very interesting one. Climbing to the ridges above the railway this walk offers walkers the opportunity to watch the train as it puffs and hoots it’s way from Clarence Station to Bottom Points Station. And that’s even before you have a chance to get on the train and rest all the way back to the start or alternatively retrace your steps back.
