If you love scenic views and wildlife, the easy Oxley walking track traces the northern rim of the Apsley Gorge. With waterfall views from every angle, it makes a perfect day outing or a great spot for a break on a road trip.
You’ll wander through cliff top woodlands of snow gums and New England stringybark before crossing the Apsley River; look for platypus paddling past or water dragons sunning themselves on the rocks.
Gazing over the dramatic gorge country from one of the four lookouts, keep your eyes peeled for brush-tailed rock wallabies, with their distinct white cheek stripe.
The view from Lower Falls lookout is not to be missed and a great spot for a break. When you’re ready for lunch there are great facilities at the Apsley Falls picnic area.
