Murrurundi  & District Walking Trails


The Eye of the Needle  - Paradise Park - Murrurundi

The walk starts at a signboard at the far end of Paradise Park (on Paradise Rd, approximately 1k past Murrurundi Golf Club). It is a constant uphill climb, through a jumble of massive granite boulders and on into the ‘Eye of the Needle’, a deep narrow crack in the cliff, almost so tight you can barely turn around. Continue upwards where you can choose to head either left or right to a rocky outcrop, overlooking the town below. 
Class 3-4. Distance: 2.5k; 1.5 hours


Burning Mountain (Wingen)

Start at Burning Mountain Rest Area carpark and follow a well-constructed track to the active vent. Panels along the track give information about the area, and there are conveniently placed seats to rest or look at the views. See the geological effects of the naturally burning coal seam and its effect on the local plant communities. The seam is currently burning 30 metres below the surface and moving south at just over one metre each year.
