Slippery Rock Walking Track

For sensational gorge views and fantastic river fishing, Slippery Rock walking track is a great introduction to the dramatic landscape of Kwiambal National Park. About an hour’s drive from Inverell, it offers great birdwatching and abundant wildlife. It’s an ideal nature escape for independent travellers and adventurous walkers who love getting ‘off the beaten track’.

As the name implies, this rough track involves several short steep climbs and some clambering over rocks. However, the effort is well worth it as you gaze across the fast flowing waters of Macintyre River, with its deep granite gorges, thundering waterfalls amid tranquil bush surroundings.

Keep an eye out for eastern grey kangaroos and red-necked wallabies, and an ear out for the raucous chatter of sulphur-crested cockatoos. Head back to Macintyre Falls picnic area and make use of the free barbecues for a well-earned lunch, and be sure to check out the nearby lookout.
