It was a good 45 minute walk both ways with an easy rock climb to see unexpected views 30 minutes from Mudgee. We saw some lyre birds. We then stopped at the Coolyan Pub for lunch on the back deck again with pretty views

We enjoyed a walk to the castle rocks. A solid walk that took 45 min each way. A stunning view after a wLk through lovely bush. Not too strenuous and nice wide track. Follow your nose when you get the actual rocks.

We were driving to Denman from Mudgee and chose the Bylong Valley route so that we could do this walk. The 4kms in is easy. Flat with the occasional small undulation. Whilst the stands of grass trees are impressive it does get monotonous. We did...More

Munghorn reserve was sold to us as a bird lovers paradise, but it looks like they flew north for the winter. The 4km walk to the rock was a little dull, but the view once there was fabulous!
