Take a walk alongside nature
Polblue Swamp Track is ‎situated in the World-Heritage Barrington Tops National Park, and this amazing bushwalk takes you on a short journey through impressive ‎wetlands and spectacular forests.‎

A perfect picnic spot...


This easy 3km (approximately 1.5 hr) loop walk is filled with towering trees with black ‎sally, snow gums with scribbles on their bark, and mountain gums overshadowing you. It makes you ‎feel so tiny walking next to this spectacular piece of nature.‎



As you stand on the forest edge you cannot help but admire the beauty that is laid out in ‎front of you. The dense grassland spreads across the swamp and if you are lucky you may spot some swamp birds, swamp wallabies and even kangaroos through the grasslands. ‎



During spring and summer this swamp trail walk becomes more of a delight as there is a ‎chance of seeing rare ground orchids along the walking tracks as well as spotting wombats ‎and kangaroos.

This short leisurely loop walk is suitable for all ages and fitness levels and certainly does ‎relax you after a day of driving and intense bushwalk activities. ‎



Be sure to add this delightful walk to your list of things to do!‎

There is a picnic area nearby as well as a campground- see website for all camping ‎information at Polblue Swamp Campground. ‎

This makes a perfect rest spot...


Getting to Polblue Swamp Track: you need to cross gravel dirt road which is suitable for ‎‎2WD. If you are coming from Gloucester take Thunderbolts Way, the road then becomes ‎Scone Rd and Barrington Tops Forest Rd, Polblue Swamp Track can be found here after ‎passing Devils Hole Lookout.‎



If you are arriving from Scone, take Hunter Rd then turn right onto Moonan Brook Rd, turn ‎left on Barrington Tops Forest Rd and after you pass the Dingo Gate Polblue Swamp Track is ‎located on the right hand side approximately 7km from the Dingo Gate. ‎
