The best place to start any visit to Terry Hie Hie is at its picnic area. Kamilaroi People have been using this site for many generations, and today it provides interpretative signage with a good introduction to the remaining Aboriginal sites around the township. It is also the access point for Yana-y Warruwi walking track.
The picnic area is close to a ceremonial corroboree ground, along with a memorial to the local Aboriginal elder, Lou Swan. There are also several carved trees, scarred trees and axe-grinding grooves nearby. This is a terrific spot for a leisurely picnic lunch, with shelter and basic facilities. Remember to be mindful of the cultural significance of the area as you wander and explore.
In spring months, wildflowers like lomandra and dianellas bloom in the area, and a bush tucker garden ripens for harvest. Also, don’t forget a pair of binoculars if birdwatching interests you, as numerous birds can be seen overhead and nesting in surrounding trees.
