You’ll enjoy views galore on this challenging hike to Blowering Falls. Steep in sections with scenic, ever-changing views of Blowering Dam, Blowering Cliffs walking track winds through open montane forest, which grows on sheltered hillsides.

This half-day walk begins at the carpark near Log Bridge Creek picnic area and campground. Follow the track as it coils upwards along a graded management trail. You’ll then head uphill to the end of the track, where a view of the cliffs and waterfalls spreads out before you.

It’s common to spot eastern grey kangaroos, emus and wallabies along this track, while birdwatchers will be able to identify a range of native woodland birds, including honeyeaters, firetails, parrots and raptors.

Return along the same track, and make use of the Log Bridge Creek facilities for a leisurely picnic. Or, if you’re in the mood to keep on going, you can tackle the 11km return Warogong Sugarloaf walking track that starts just up the Snowy Mountains Highway, and camp overnight at Log Bridge Creek.

Iconic species - Southern corroboree frog conservation program
