Trail information

Warrigal walking track

The short Warrigal track is a delight for children and adults alike, with ancient granite tors, lookouts, a wetland, and lots of wildflowers. This area burnt in the 2019/20 fires, and the track has since been upgraded. Take your time on this walk to enjoy the high country environment.

Head out from the carpark on the track that leads to Woolpack Rocks, turning left onto the Warrigal loop at the signpost soon after crossing Native Dog Creek. Warrigal, of course, is the local word for Dingo who live and hunt in these open forests of snowgum, stringybark and wattle. Information signs along the route include descriptions and photos of wildflowers and ground orchids you can see. Maybe you will spot the rare and beautiful Styphelia perileuca which flowers in spring.

Two short detours off the track lead to lookouts over the creek valley. A nice place to relax and listen to the birds, before descending to cross the creek on a boardwalk. Stop to look for fish, and listen to the frogs, before returning to Native Dog carpark.
