Trail information

Bulagaranda (Mt Yarrowyck)

Bulagaranda (Mt Yarrowyck) is Anaiwan country, the word relates to turkey dreaming. In April 2022, the site was returned with celebration and ceremony to the traditional owners, who now manage the area in partnership with NPWS. An easy track leads from the car park to a rock shelter with ochre rock paintings of bird tracks and eggs that are 150+ years old.

West of Armidale, the reserve contains woodland scattered with granite tors. The mountain peak, a batholith, is 1153 metres elevation, some 350 metres above the Yarrowyck Crossing of the Gwydir River nearby. The mountain can be climbed, but there is no track.

If you are travelling the New England Highway, Bulagaranda is a great spot to stretch your legs with a short walk, then enjoy a picnic lunch at the shady picnic table next to the granite rocks.
