The Drip

This popular site is located in the Goulburn River State Conservation Area, on the extreme western boundary of Goulburn River National Park. The walking track follows the Goulburn River to the Great Dripping Wall. Known as The Drip, this towering sandstone cliff face is adorned with weeping grasses and ferns, dripping clear spring water in the river below.

Check the NPWS website for advice regarding alerts and closures.

Where: The Drip picnic area and walking track is situated 50 km (35 min) north of Mudgee on the Ulan-Cassilis Road (37km from Gulgong) and 10km past the village of Ulan. Look for signposting just north of the Ulan coal mine precinct.

Hill End

A short drive from Mudgee to Hill End will take you back to the gold rush days. Hill End Historic Site is State Heritage listed and conserves a suite of buildings and the mining derived landscape.

Putta Bucca Wetlands

Located off Putta Bucca Road just north of Mudgee, this waterbird paradise exhibits a wide range of flora and fauna. Easily accessed with a parking area and includes an easy 2km walk and two newly built birdhides. This is a recreational area for birdwatching, bicycle riding, fishing and walking.

Dunns Swamp

Dunns swamp, or Ganguddy as it is known to local Aboriginal people, is a beautiful, serene waterway on the Cudgegong river in Wollemi National Park. Ganguddy is perfect for a range of low-key recreational activities, from birdwatching and fishing to canoeing and swimming.

Ferntree Gully

This reserve protects an area of unique rainforest and western plant communities. The track to Ferntree Gully turns off from Bylong Valley Way 17km from Rylstone. It is a further 3 km on an unsealed track to the picnic area and start of walk.

Hands on Rock

These stencils of hands were made by the Wiradjuri people who occupied most of the central west of what is now New South Wales, and were one of the largest Aboriginal language groups. This heritage site is about 12km east of Ulan and 2km on the left-hand side past the entrance to ‘The Drip’. To get there, turn left off the Ulan-Cassilis Road at the Bobadeen Road sign, turn sharp left again, and drive 500 metres to the car park.
