Box Vale Mine Walk

New South Wales

The Box Vale Mine track follows the formation of a historic railway line and passes through cuttings, along embankments and through a tunnel 84 metres in length. Although much of the surrounding terrain is steep and rocky, the four point four kilometre walking track has easy grades and the return walk takes about three hours. There is also a one point eight kilometre spur track through pleasant bush land to 40 foot falls and a very steep track leads to vantage point below the falls. Picnic tables and barbecues are provided near the track head car park.

Comments

A very interesting walk that follows the old train track and cuttings. Optional Spur 3.6km return. Very steep and lots of step but a good addition if you want a challenge. 2 hours
