Moderate track
Starting from the end of Goonengerry Mill Road, Goonengerry, this circuit walk pivots around two hills and crosses multiple creeks, giving you a tour of Goonengerry National Park. This park used to be a state forest before January 1999. It consists of 525 hectares and pivots around 2 hills. Providing heaps of shade, this hike could be a refreshing choice for a workout in summer. Besides, almost all of the track is on fire trails, so overtaking people is unlikely to cause problems. If you’re here when it’s foggy, be prepared to feel like you’re in a mysterious adventure in nature. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
