This area was recommended by a lady at the tourist information centre. Thanks to her we went. It is completely unseen from the road, but a relatively easy walk in. Beautiful, untouched Australian bush at its finest. Take a picnic.

Lovely place to visit, very calming and peaceful. Very beautiful and almost haunting, reminded me of Picnic at Hanging Rock Not a hard walk and well maintained waling paths

Easy walk along a well worn track with some beautiful scenery. The rock formations are stunning and there are good information boards along the way

I little bit of a drive to get there from Mudgee but well worth the drive. Perfect for a family of adventurers. I little bit hard for our couch potato friend but worth the effort.

A very peaceful place. A little bit of effort is required to get there - the drive but then just a bit of walking. Go for the exercise, stay for the tranquility.

Yes, however, there is one bit where it is a bit narrow to get through some rocks, so you might have to take the baby out at that stage. It is not a difficult walk if you are used to doing bush walks.
