Yulludunida walking track is an exhilarating 3km, 2 hour return hike. This hard walk from Green Camp carpark takes you up the side of the steep bluff, a heart-pumping 350-metre rise in altitude. Adventurous and experienced bushwalkers will be rewarded with uninterrupted 360° views across Mount Kaputar National Park and North West NSW.
Yulludunida walking track includes a breathtaking bird’s eye view of the mountain’s crater, one of the most impressive examples of a ring dyke in Australia. You'll notice the woodland trees become sparser as the contorted shapes of the crater appear.
It’s a steep climb up the stairs through woodland to the top of the ridge. Crossing an old dingo-proof fence, the landscape opens up to a spectacular rocky panorama that looks like it is straight out of central Australia. Keep watching while bushwalking for scurrying lizards, patrolling birds of prey and hardy heath wildflowers growing out of bare rock.
Retrace your steps to Green Camp and enjoy a well-earned lunch at the picnic tables.
