CATHEDRAL ROCK NATIONAL PARK TOUR

Cathedral Rock National Park is situated on the Waterfall Way about 75 km from Armidale and 60 km from Dorrigo in the Northern Tablelands of northern New South Wales.  The park exhibits granite landforms which include photogenic giant tors that are typical of many parts of the granite-rich New England region. 

The park includes a number of formed walking tracks: 

  • The Cathedral Rock track is an easy  three hour circuit, (5.8 km) beginning at  the Barokee Rest Area. The walk crosses both swampy and rocky country. A 400 m track branches off near the  summit  of Cathedral Rock. There are rewarding views from the top.
  • The Woolpack Rocks walk is an easy 7.5 km return walk (2-3 hours) which commences from the Native Dog  Creek Rest Area.  A  branch track leads off from the main track to the interesting summit of Woolpack Rocks.
  • The Warrigal track is an easy 1km circuit (10-20 minutes)  through woodland.
  • The Barokee-Native Dog track is a 10.5 km walk between the two camping areas at the Barokee and Native Dog Creek rest areas.

A brochure is downloadable below from the park authority.
