Following on from Mill-bullah walking track, the Waa Gorge walking track is a picturesque scramble for more intrepid hikers through the Grattai Wilderness Area. This track is unformed, so be prepared for a bit of a challenge as you climb a small hill on the left side of the Mill-bullah waterholes and down the other side to follow the creek into the gorge.
The walls of the gorge are spectacularly colourful, and the cool shelter offers a nice picnic spot amid the dramatic setting of the NSW Western Plains. In spring, you’ll find a myriad of wildflowers here, and the gorge is also studded with fig trees. Don't forget your camera and binoculars for some great birdwatching.
