“Dubbo Gully trail is steep and a big challenge, but well worth the effort and work.”
Definitely not for the fainthearted, this challenging steep track is ideal for adventurous bushwalkers and mountain bikers who love to test themselves. Dubbo Gully trail leads through rugged and remote bushland along a section of World Heritage-listed Old Great North Road - World Heritage walk, built by convicts between 1826 -1836.
Starting at Mangrove Mountain, you’ll wind through Dubbo Gully passing open fields and a historic old cemetery. Arriving at Old Great North Road, look for Clares Bridge, the second oldest bridge on the mainland.
With a flat grassy area Ten Mile Hollow campground is a nice spot for a picnic lunch along the way, or you might be tempted to pitch your tent and spend a night under the stars.
There’s plenty to see while bushwalking along Dubbo Gully loop trail. It is a clearly signposted track with diverse landscapes which come alive in the spring with cream flowering sydney red gums and striking red gymea lilies. You might even see a swamp wallaby hopping across the path.
