Oxley Wild Rivers National Park
About the Track
Track Description
Oxley Wild Rivers National Park contains Wollomombi, which is the highest waterfall in NSW. The easiest access is via the Apsley Gorge which is 20 kilometres east of Walcha, off the Oxley Highway. Apsley is 150 kilometres west of Port Macquarie. A 4WD vehicle is required for access to Riverside, Youdales Hut and East Kunderang Homestead and you\'ll also need a permit and key - contact the park office for more details. Riverside and Youdales Hut require a 4WD vehicle with low range gearing - no trailers. The most extensive 4WD tours that can be undertaken in the park is a trip to Mary\'s View. There are two ways of going about this and the first is to travel along the Waterfall Way, then take the Armidale Kempsey Road to the village of Willawarrin, then turn right onto Carrai Road. Follow Carrai Road to Kookaburra, then follow Carrai Road to the right, and follow the signs to Mary\'s View. The second is to drive to Walcha, then travel east along the Oxley Highway, and follow the signs to Werrikimbe National Park along Kangaroo Flat Road. When in Werrikimbe National Park, follow the Racecourse Trail to Coachwood Road, then to Kookaburra and Carrai Rd, and follow the signs to Mary\'s View. Which ever way you decide it will take at least 7 hours return, not including stops for lunch. 4WD vehicles are essential, and take care as the roads are narrow, winding and can be slippery in the wet.

26511 Did Oxley Rivers as part of a bigger tour trough the area, Youdales hut is beautiful but you need keys from Service Station in Walcha steep but straight forward trip to the hut (may be different in the wet) LandRover Discovery Jan 8, 2013
17302 The northern part of Oxley Wild Rivers N/P is spectacular and I'll definitely return there one day. Unfortunately the only official campsite I gained access to was Halls Peak - it's a great and has a VERY steep track in (requires low range, high clearance and a key from N/P). Apparently Carters Track is a more difficult, but it's closed permanently. Georges Creek and the Macleay River were fantastic. The major dirt roads in this northern region are in great condition. *As for the south; I've described it in the "Carrai National Park" track log. Toyota Prado Dec 28, 2011
13473 Dissapointed that tracks in my old 4wd book were now gated. Beautiful scenery. Plenty more tracks to explore though. Toyota Hilux Surf Dec 28, 2010
