Chandler View circuit walk

Oxley Wild Rivers National Park

Open, check current alerts 


Dry rainforest, birdwatching, and scenic views from the lookout make Chandler View circuit walk from Long Point an excellent medium walk.

6km loop
Time suggested
2 - 3hrs
Grade 3
What to
Drinking water, hat, sunscreen
Please note
Remember to take your binoculars if you want to bird watch.

Accessed from Long Point campground and picnic area, the moderately challenging Chandler View circuit walk offers the chance to get up close to and experience the unique dry rainforest that has put Oxley Wild Rivers National Park on the map.

The medium length track leads through dry rainforest where you might see the delicate rock orchids and felt ferns that only grow in these conditions. The track then opens out, following gorge ridges dotted with yellow box and silvertop stringybark.

Take a break at Chandler River lookout and take in the scenic views over the river. You'll be able to see the dry rainforest as pockets of darker green patches of vegetation, often located on the southern facing slopes. And bring your binoculars for wildlife and birdwatching.
