The Green Gully track, part of the World Heritage-listed Oxley Wild Rivers National Park, is an adventurous 65km walk. This award-winning walking track is one of the best in NSW, and takes you on a unique journey deep into the Apsley-Macleay gorges, one of the largest gorge systems in Australia.

The only way to experience the inspiring views, dramatic gorges and abundant wildlife is to book a self-guided walk.

On the four day Green Gully track, you’ll traverse fern-lined gullies, crystal-clear mountain streams, high-elevation forests as well as towering rocky outcrops. You’ll share some of the terrain with endangered brush-tailed rock wallabies, soaring wedge-tailed eagles, and native marsupial mice.

Uniquely, there is no need to carry a tent as you’ll stay in restored stockman huts along the way. Fitted with the essentials like beds, rainwater, solar-lighting, non-flush toilets and cooking equipment within each hut, these huts will greet the weary walker at the end of each day.
