Beginning at the carpark at The Pines picnic area, this easy walk is a great option for an after-lunch stroll through Cocoparra National Park.

Follow the gently undulating track along the creek line, passing sun-dappled white cypress pines, bimble box trees and pretty white daisies as you go. Conveniently located near Woolshed Flat campground, not far from Griffith, this short walk is ideal for walking with kids. They’ll relish the adventure of roaming through the cool, sheltered grassy woodland, listening to the sounds of the bush and vying to be the first to spot some wildlife. They shouldn’t have to wait long, though – there are plenty of woodland birds around, and they might even see a swamp wallaby enjoying the shade.

You’ll find the track ends at a point where the rocks form a rugged impasse. This is where the spectacular Woolshed Falls flow, but remember the falls only run after heavy rain. At other times, when the falls are dry or even just a dribble, it’s still a delightful sight with tiny orchids growing in the rock crevices, and moss and lichen creating an impressive array of colourful patterns.
