For an invigorating walk in the spectacular high country of Barrington Tops National Park, between Scone and Gloucester, you can’t miss Careys Peak walking track. The walk leads from Mount Barrington picnic area, along the eastern rim of the escarpment, to Careys Peak lookout.
This track winds through the wooded plateau country of majestic snow and mountain gums. Antarctic beech trees and remnants of the ancient Gondwana rainforests emerge over the edge of the cliff tops in several spots. Be sure to check out historic Careys Peak hut on your way to the summit.
Unpack a picnic lunch at the lookout and enjoy priceless views across the Barrington wilderness and Hunter Valley. If you’re lucky, you might catch a glimpse of a wedge-tailed eagle surfing the thermals above the valley.
Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
