4WD Oberon Colong Historic Stock Route

Intrepid 4WD tourers love the 4WD Oberon Colong historic stock route. The drive takes you through the southern part of Blue Mountains National Park, adjacent to Kanangra-Boyd National Park. Before arriving at Yerranderie Regional Park, the route also passes through Yerranderie State Conservation Area.

The route follows slopes that plunge down to Wollondilly River to the south and Kowmung River to the north. Along the way, you’ll get tantalising glimpses into the rugged Kanangra-Boyd wilderness, as well as views of the historic township, which has many reminders of its silver mining legacy still in evidence. Follow the unsealed road to Mount Werong campground, from where you can enjoy a walk to the historic Ruby Creek mine. Then, continue on your spectacular drive along Oberon Colong historic stock route, dipping and weaving along the crest of the Murruin Range to Yerranderie Private Town.

Keep your eyes peeled for the interesting local wildlife, including kangaroos, wallabies and wombats. If you’re a keen birdwatcher, be sure to look out for the gorgeous forest flocks of rainbow lorikeets and sulphur-crested cockatoos in spring and summer. At night, you may hear the cries of the powerful and sooty owls.
