Burbie Canyon Walking Track
Kamilaroi & Weilwan Country

↑ 45 m
↓ -45 m

Moderate track
Starting from Burbie Canyon Car park this return walk takes you through a sandstone gorge, along and across Burbie Creek several times. This is a great family walk and an amazing spot for birdwatchers. From peregrine falcons (fastest birds in the world) to turquoise parrots, many bird species can be seen here. You can also come across red-necked and swamp wallabies, or even a koala if you look carefully (and get a bit lucky). Coming in spring may be a good idea due to the increased wildflower population. Let us begin by acknowledging the Kamilaroi & Weilwan people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
