Overview

Highlights

The picturesque Little Mountain walking track runs from Dry Tank campground to Little Mountain lookout in Gundabooka National Park, near Bourke. It's hard not to be moved by the beauty and tranquility of the bush as you amble along this red-soil track. Keep your camera handy to snap a few photos as you're likely to encounter kangaroos, emus and reptiles on this easy walk. Plus, if you enjoy birdwatching, you'll certainly be kept busy spotting finches, robins and mallee ring-necks.

The spring and autumn seasons are ideal for venturing through Little Mountain walking track, and it's a great nature walk to share with the kids. The colourful wildflower displays will surprise you, and you'll discover some interesting facts about the area if you take time to read the informative signage along the way. Follow this walking track through wild mulga woodland, watching as the magnificent Gunderbooka Range rises up from the plains.The lookout at the end offers scenic views of the range’s entire northern escarpment, and is particularly beautiful at sunset.
