Getting there:

Once in Cobar, head to the Heritage Centre/Visitor Centre on Nyngan Road, where there is ample parking. 


Maps are available from the Heritage Centre.

Route/Trail notes:

From the Heritage Centre, head back towards town and take the first left down Lewis Street along the side of the slag dump. The track at the end heads around the golf course and then Newey Reservoir Wetland, before coming out onto Woodiwiss Avenue, where you turn right and head into town and back to the start (2.4km).

Interesting walk, aided by the numerous information panels and bird life around the reservoir. A little confusing with the roadside walk back through town to the start.
