Mares Forest Creek walking track


Be in awe of the striking landscape as you take an easy hike along Mares Forest Creek walking track. After around 1.6 kilometres and about 45 minutes, you’ll arrive at Tinted Cave, the only cave in Wombeyan you can explore yourself.

Bring a picnic and take a break by the creek. You might also want to bring your swimmers, since there are some deep pools of water alongside some shallower areas that are suitable for smaller kids. Don’t forget your camera either, because you’ll want to remember this remarkable landscape when you get back home.

Birdlife is abundant in the kurrajong trees and yellow box gums, so be sure to bring your binoculars too if birdwatching is of interest. During summer, you may see lizards sunning themselves on rocks, and kangaroos, wallabies and wombats are often spotted close to nightfall.
