Mount Yarrowyck Nature Reserve

Open, check current alerts 


Mount Yarrowyck Nature Reserve was created in February 1983. It covers an area of 589ha. View the detailed park and fire management documents.

Mount Yarrowyck Nature Reserve protects an Aboriginal cave painting site and much of the natural environment of Mount Yarrowyck. The reserve's Aboriginal cultural walk, a three kilometre return track, will take you along the granite slopes of the mountain to the cave painting site.

The track will take you through one of the few remnants of natural bushland on the western slopes of the New England Tablelands. The walking track is clear and easy to follow and, apart from one short section, it is level and undemanding.

Please note

Mount Yarrowyck Nature Reserve is about a 30 minute drive from Armidale (west) along Bundarra Road. This is a main road that is sealed. The carpark is just off Thunderbolts Way, which is also a main sealed highway. You'll need to walk 3km to access the nature reserve.

These maps give a basic overview of park attractions and facilities, and may not be detailed enough for some activities. We recommend that you buy a topographic map before you go exploring.
