What a breathtaking view from the top. Our family including three kids, ages 12 to 16 had a great time. It’s a lovely walk. April is a great month to do it. Take your lunch in your backpack and eat it at the top. Fantastic...More

Early morning start with 8 kids aged 14 to 6. Good bush walk up to the start of the actual 'climb' - takes about 20 minutes or so. The climb is steep in places, takes another 20 minutes or so and necessitates some crawling and...More

There's a tent and camper-trailer (not Caravans) site for camping with toilets. A clear hiking track, with wooden bridges, some steps on mostly sandy track. Granite boulders, banksia, even a big kangaroo. The loop track takes 1-2 hours, go left first, so you have easier...More

Saw amazing photos of the rocks and was keen to visit Cathedral Rock National Park on our first motorhome trip. We quickly realised upon driving into the National Park that the dirt track is not the best for the motorhome but there’s no u-turn spots....More

A long drive from Bellingen, but we found it to be worth it. Perhaps we lucked out, but we had the most incredible hike at Cathedral Rocks. I'd recommend watching the sunrise nearby before heading to Cathedral Rocks. We were there early in the morning...More

Great spot to experience the granite tors of the New England. The walk to Woolpack Rocks from Barokee including ascents of both Cathedral Rocks and Woolpack Rocks is a 14km two way walk which is strenuous in parts but rewarding. Lunch on the Woolpack Rocks...More

We were travelling through the area during a very cold period and decided to take a look at Cathedral Rock National Park. We entered from the Waterfall Way and found it quite a distance in. So often National Parks do not sign post distances which...More
