Urunga Wetlands Walk

A peaceful stroll with a boardwalk across the wetlands and a bench to contemplate the birds.

Trail information

Urunga Wetlands walks is lovely, quiet place with good bird watching and photographic opportunities.

The trail has interesting signs about the Broken Hill Antinomy Pty Ltd plant that processed ore from the antimony mine at Wild Cattle Creek in the early 1970s. Significant environmental damage was done. A large remediation effort from the NSW Government was needed to treat contaminated soils and restore water quality in the wetlands. A grassy mound now hides a containment cell with multiple layers. Information signs provide more information about Urunga Wetlands.

The trail is accessible – flat with a hard surface and boardwalk. There is parking but no other facilities. This is a short but rewarding walk, combine it with Urunga Boardwalk if you have more time.
