Scutts Hut and Kurrawonga Falls walk is a 19 kilometre hike through the beautiful mountain scenery of Mount Kaputar National Park, near Narrabri. As one of the more challenging walks in the park, it offers a chance to really experience the historic heritage of Scutts Hut, a hut built by an early pioneer in the 1930s.

Leaving Scutts Hut trail, the 1.7 kilometre track leading to Scutts Hut is marked. However, the 450 metre steep track that leads to Kurrawonga Falls isn’t, so you’ll need to keep your eyes open for the fence that runs down to Horsearm Creek just above the falls.

Enjoy a spot of birdwatching among the woodlands of silvertop stringybark, mountain gums and rough bark apples. You might want to rest and camp overnight near the historic hut as this track is very steep and difficult.
