A spectacular and inspiring walk for photographers, birdwatchers and bushwalkers, Castle walk, near Yarrangobilly Caves, follows Yarrangobilly River past Glory Arch and South Glory Cave. With the sight of spectacular limestone cliffs – where you may even discover ancient fossils – and the opportunity to combine it with a cave tour, this medium walk in the north of Kosciuszko National Park, delights in all seasons.

Spend the warmer months swimming and fishing in the pristine mountain waters, while the currawongs and kookaburras chatter in the trees. Winter often blankets the area in snow and offers the chance to see glistening icicles clinging to the South Glory cave entrance.

With overnight options at nearby historic Yarrangobilly Caves House and Lyrebird Cottage, you might be tempted to linger a while in the magnificent high country.
