Wollemi National Park

Walking

Sandstone rock formations called pagodas in Wollemi National Park (Image: Neil Stone/DECCW)Wollemi National Park protects and preserves a unique environment with a staggering array of natural features. Whatever your level of fitness or expertise there is a way to experience first-hand rugged gorges, sandstone cliffs lining clear waterways, pockets of rainforest and eucalypt forests teeming with birdlife. Although much of the park is trackless wilderness, you can explore the areas around the edges of the park on the established walking tracks described below.

On the south-western side Newnes and surrounds have spectacular scenery, fascinating historical sites and scenic riverside walks. Dunns Swamp - Ganguddy is the starting point for a network of beautiful walks that explore the waterways, sandstone pagodas and Aboriginal sites, offering glimpses of the abundant local wildlife. The Bicentennial National Trail passes through the western side of the park and can be explored on foot, bicycle and horseback. On the eastern side there is the spectacular Colo Gorge and the wild and beautiful Colo River.

Self-reliant, experienced walkers can explore the Wollemi Wilderness where there are no marked trails. For more information on walking in the wilderness areas of the park see information on water, safety and supplies.

Deep Pass North walking track

Deep Pass area, Wollemi National Park (Image: Neil Stone/DECCW)Admire the beautiful pagoda rock formations as you thread your way through cool, ferny gullies to a beautiful grassy clearing, perfect for walk-in camping. This short walk and camping area are right on the edge of the Wollemi wilderness. The track is steep and rocky in places, so take care as you descend. If you plan on venturing beyond Deep Pass into the wilderness, make sure you have a good navigator and experience walking in difficult terrain.

These environments are easily damaged by trampling feet. Aboriginal sites featuring rock art may be found around escarpment areas – please respect these places by not touching the art or marking rock surfaces.

Directions: the track head is reached via rough, unmaintained gravel roads through Newnes State Forest. You will need a map to navigate to the track head since signs in the state forest are often missing. The walking track is signposted from the car park with a short description of the walk and a map. This is the best walking track to Deep Pass.

Access: via Newnes Plateau.

This is an alternative to the Deep Pass North walking track, although slightly longer.

This track is overgrown and in poor condition due to erosion, so Deep Pass North is the better option for reaching Deep Pass.

Directions: access is via rough, unmaintained gravel roads in Newnes State Forest. You will need a map to navigate to the track head since signs in the state forest are often missing.

The walking track is signposted from the car park with a short description of the walk and a map.

Newnes Industrial Ruins track

Coke ovens at Newnes industrial ruins site, Wollemi National Park (Image: Neil Stone/DECCW)Experience the eerie quiet of this once noisy site as you wander through the picturesque ruins of the oil shale processing works. Snakes and lizards doze on the crumbling brick walls and the scale of the operation will astound you. Over a 30 year period a town, a railway and this complex for the mining, production, processing and refining of shale oil grew, expanded and then were abandoned by up to 2000 inhabitants.

The walk takes you to the main relics of the oil shale processing works. You'll see the ruins of the unique, beehive-shaped coke ovens, retainer walls, the exhauster house and the atmospheric condensers which were used to distil the crude oil. The shale oil was processed on site into products including paraffin for candles, crude oil, kerosene, blue oil and lubricating oil.

The last section of the walk follows the route of the old railway line back to the car park. For a detailed description of the walk and a map you can purchase the Wollemi walking track guide called 'Newnes and the Glow Worm Tunnel' from the Blue Mountains Heritage Centre in Blackheath.

Caution: a long brick stairway takes you down to the distillation area, where there are the remains of four distillation benches and the brick-lined flues that carried gases from the stills to the chimneys. The flues are unstable and should not be entered.

Directions: this walk starts from the Ruins car park. Cross the Wolgan River at the 4WD ford 100m north of the old Newnes Hotel. Turn left and pass several camping sites before reaching the car park. The signposted track begins at the locked gate.

Access: via the Wolgan Valley.

Cultural heritage: The ruins are the remains of a major shale oil plant that operated between 1906 and 1932, and it is an important historical and archaeological site because of its size and complexity.

T3 track

At the start of the walk there are great views on both sides of the track. When you reach a large, flat rock on the cliff edge there is a beautiful view of the river below. The track then descends more steeply, taking you down to the Colo River and Tootie Creek junction.

Along the track you may see the beautiful, red seed cones of the burrawangs, an ancient species of cycad. Take the time to enjoy a swim in one of the swimming spots in the river and enjoy the great views of the gorge on your walk.

Bob Turners track

A view along the Colo River, Bob Turners Track, Wollemi National Park (Image: Friends of the Colo/OEH)For a taste of the spectacular Colo Gorge, this is the easiest walking track. You descend steadily to the river through a series of rocky gullies, the first lined with ferns and shaded by smooth-barked apple (Angophora costata). You’ll see the dramatic changes in vegetation with each gully having its own particular trees and shrubs.

When you reach the Colo River after the steep descent a swim in the river is the perfect way to cool off. Explore the riverbanks, picnic amongst the blue gums and water gums and keep an eye out for lyrebirds and goannas. You may even spot one of the rare koalas in the area.

Directions: travel north along Putty Road to Colo Heights. Around 700m past the service station the road bends, slow down and watch carefully for the sharp turn into a dirt road on your left. Drive for 2.5km to the start of the walking track.

Glow Worm Tunnel track

Tree ferns near the Glow Worm Tunnel, Wollemi National Park (Image: Neil Stone/DECCW)The stunning diversity Wollemi National Park offers you is on display on this fascinating walk. Gullies of lush tree ferns, towering pagoda-shaped rock formations, tall cliffs and beautiful views of the Wolgan Valley jostle for attention. It is also a trip back in time to the days of oil shale mining, with parts of the track following the old railway line painfully constructed along cliffs and through the rock face itself.

Glow Worm Tunnel is around 400m long and as you leave behind the light from the entrance, the glow worms gradually become visible, sparkling on the roof and upper walls of the tunnel. The cool and quiet of the tunnel and the pricks of light from the glow worms make this a unique experience. For a more detailed description of the walk and a map you can purchase the Wollemi walking track guide called 'Newnes and the Glow Worm Tunnel' from the Blue Mountains Heritage Centre in Blackheath.

Caution: the floor is rough and there is water running along the centre, so step carefully. It is completely black in the middle of the tunnel, so take a torch, and keep noise to a minimum as the glow worms are sensitive to sound.

Directions: from the Wolgan Valley the walk begins 7km south of Newnes or 27km from the Lidsdale turnoff. Park near the grassy clearing close to a pair of gate posts, then walk along the vehicle track past the locked gate to the concrete causeway and cross the river. There is a short but steep climb past an old colliery to the railway alignment. Pass the sign for the Old Coach Road which you will take for the return walk and follow the railway alignment to the Glow Worm Tunnel. From the other side return via the Pagoda track, which is signposted around 500m from the tunnel entrance. Turn left at the Old Coach Road about 700m along the track, then follow this for around 4km to return to your car.
Access: via the Wolgan Valley.

From the Newnes Plateau turn off the Bells Line of Road at Clarence (Zig Zag Railway) and follow the gravel road through Newnes State Forest for 34km. The parking area for the Glow Worm Tunnel is 3km past the junction of Glow Worm Tunnel Road and the Old Coach Road. If you leave your car here it is an easy 5km walk along the railway formation. Alternatively, you can continue on by car to the vehicle barrier and walk 1km from there to the tunnel, however parking is limited and the road is narrow. Allow at least an hour from this point.
Access: via Newnes Plateau.

Newnes to Rocky Creek walk

A dramatic view of the Lower Wolgan, Wollemi National Park (Image: Neil Stone/DECCW)This walk downstream along the Wolgan River takes you through stunning sandstone cliffs and forest, with swimming holes along the way and an abundance of bird life. From the industrial ruins at Newnes you follow the river to Rocky Creek where you can camp overnight. When the track heads up towards the cliffs you can catch lovely views of the cliff faces and you may even catch sight of the rare glossy black cockatoo. This management track has a few steep sections but you are generally walking along gentle to moderate slopes.

Caution: only attempt this walk if you are an experienced bushwalker. Make sure you take topographic maps and a compass, and to protect the bush please observe the minimal impact bushwalking code.

Directions: start from the ford near the old hotel at Newnes, cross the river then follow the fire trail on the other side towards The Ruins, the site of the Newnes refinery, around 2km along the track. There are some old farm ruins around 4.5km further on. The track then heads up towards the cliffs. There is a long descent to the junction of the Wolgan River and Rocky Creek, and a small camping site on a ledge above flood level. The track beyond this point crosses the Wolgan River and extends for another 4km before ending in dense, shrubby forest.

Mailes Ridge route

This walk leads you to the lovely Colo Meroo camping area beside the Colo River. You follow the 4WD track as it climbs steeply to reach Gospers Ridge, then descends gradually. There are markers once you reach the Colo-Meroo trail, which follows the contours of Mailes Ridge northwards.

Along the ridge you have beautiful views down to the Colo River and north-west to Mount Townsend. When you approach the Meroo Trig take the right hand branch of the track to reach the trig station, marked by a pile of rocks. You can rest here and survey the Colo wilderness to your west, while to the east of Mailes Ridge you can see the contrasting cultivated farmland and the edges of Sydney suburbia.

Return to the track and continue on down to the Colo Meroo camping area, enjoying the stunning views along the way. You can spend the night here, and have a swim in the clear shallow waters of the river. There is even a white sandy beach a little to the north of the campground. Return via the same route.

Directions: travel west along Bells Line of Road and turn right onto Mountain Lagoon Road near Bilpin. Follow this road along and veer left at Sam's Way (loop road) then turn left when you see an NPWS sign. You can leave the car here and walk 500m to the start of the track.
