Located in NSW New England Tablelands, Warrigal walking track in Cathedral Rock National Park is an easy loop walk. It invites walkers to take their time and appreciate the area’s flowering heath plants, idyllic creek crossings and granite rocks. Starting at Native Dog campground, the track is mostly level, making it an ideal family walk.

You’ll pass large granite boulders and a picturesque mountain stream, with eucalypts and wattle trees contrasting against patches of heath shrub. It’s also a great place for birdwatching. Look out for native birds such as New Holland, and white-cheeked, honeyeaters as well as red, and little, wattlebirds taking advantage of the heath.

If this short stroll whets your appetite for more adventures, why not pitch a tent and camp overnight?  If you’re ready for a challenge, there’s the longer Woolpack Rocks walk to take on.
