This exciting 65km trek is a great way to enjoy 5 days of splendid isolation in beautiful Oxley Wild Rivers National Park. With your experienced Primal Adventures guide, venture deep into the Apsley-Macleay gorges of NSW’s Northern Tablelands.
As you walk, immerse yourself in timeless Gondwana rainforest with fern-lined gullies, crystal-clear streams and towering rocky outcrops. The only extra company your small group is likely to encounter is native wildlife including brush-tailed rock wallabies and soaring wedge-tailed eagles.
There's no need to carry a tent because at the end of each day you'll make yourself at home in heritage huts equipped with mattresses and other basics; some even boast hot showers. Then it's time to put your feet up and enjoy stargazing beneath remarkably clear night skies.
Primal Adventures is a licensed commercial tour operator with a Parks Eco Pass.
