Beautiful!

A nice easy walk in a beautiful area, the views once you arrive are amazing and when we visited we were the only ones around! A must see.

At Munghorn Gap Nature Reserve, we walked the 8 km return to Castle Rocks. The track was good enough for a vehicle and relatively flat which made for an easy walk, but it was rather uninspiring. It wasn’t until we reached the lookout point at the end, from where we could see the castle like rock formations in every direction... More

To be honest the walk to this location is somewhat long and uninspiring. I had to nearly carry my 10yo son who found himself bored by the wide tracks. There were also no amenities which was a problem. All of this however was outweighed by the view at the end of the walk. I would recommend.

I think the drizzle added to my brief stop in this beautiful place! I stood to look at the guide board under a tin room and the putter patter of rain was almost meditative. The wet leaves under my feet squeaked as I walked, not worrying about the cool wet day, but instead memorised by the solitude and silence! A... More

I was on my own in this peaceful place with only the numerous birds for company. It was peaceful and a good place fro a stop with toilet facility.

Four of us went yesterday and had the more sensational day. What a breathtaking view and just a stone's throw from Mudgee. Yes, some of it might not be faint hearted, but then you don't have to venture out beyond your ability. An absolute nature/photography lover's paradise!

Nice easy walk along bush fire track about 4klm. Take some water as it takes about 1 hour. At the end a bit of a climb up rocks to a fantastic view.

Having lived in Mudgee for over 30 years, I'd never been out to the Munghorn Gap nature Reserve (Castle Rocks) until recently. Our local 4x4 Club decided it would be a great social get together and picnic idea. Went ventured out approximately 25 km from Mudgee in the Direction of a local Village called Wollar. On the right hand side... More
