Pholis Gap Walking Track

Location

Newton Drive
Nightcap, New South Wales, 2480

Details

Pholis Gap walking track is perfect if youre looking for spectacular views across to Wollumbin-Mount Warning and the dramatic mountains of the Nightcap escarpment.

Situated in northern NSW, this moderate walking track offers spectacular mountain scenery, and is ideal for families and keen birdwatchers.

Starting at Mount Nardi, the track meanders through lush rainforest of yellow carabeen and towering brushbox. You might see Alberts lyrebirds and brush turkeys darting through the understorey. Descending westwards, look for grass trees and New England blackbutt along the drier ridges.

Reaching Pholis Gap, gaze across the surrounding valleys that were once a part of a volcanic crater. Looking to the skies, you might be lucky to see a peregrine falcon surfing on the updrafts.
