Whether you’re keen to hit the road on a 4WD tour or explore nature at its best, scenic Howes trail offers an exhilarating day trip. Part of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, this beautiful car touring route traces the northern reaches of Yengo National Park, near Windsor.
The 30 kilometre driving route is also popular with motorbike and mountain bike riders. Howes trail is an easy 2.5 hour drive through open ironbark forests and for those interested in birdwatching. More than 200 species of birds call Yengo home, including raucous glossy black and gang gang cockatoos and the distinct call of the lyrebird.
Be sure to pack a picnic lunch and pull up along the road to enjoy the remote wilderness. If you’re lucky, you might catch a glimpse of wombats or wallaroos darting through the bush.
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.
