Stretching over 70 kilometres from Wisemans Ferry to the Hunter Valley, Yengo National Park is a wild area of steep gorges and rocky ridges, forming part
of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage area. Mt Yengo is of cultural significance to local Aboriginal communities and the historic Old Great North
Road, an intact example of early 19th century convict road-building, follows the south-east boundary of the park.
Walking tracks: It takes 2 to 3 days to comfortably walk the 43 kilometre section of the Old Great North Road from Wisemans Ferry to Mount Manning.
Along the road you'll see Clare's Bridge, one of the oldest bridges on the mainland, and Circuit Flat Bridge. You can also walk into Frog Hollow, a volcanic
plug. Along the way you can camp at Ten Mile Hollow and Mogo Creek. Remember to take plenty of water because there is no permanent water supply
along the road.
The Womera Range Track is also popular and you can stop overnight at the Heartbreak Hill camping area.
Driving in the park: The Finchley-Yango-Boree loop, which starts near Laguna and is suitable for conventional cars, will give you a feel for this dry, sandstone park. Conventional cars can also take a scenic drive from St Albans to Bucketty via Mogo Creek Road. Along the way you'll see the picturesque St Albans countryside with its extensive wetlands, and pass the historic Deans Quarry and the Mogo Creek picnic area.
Yengo is full of possibilities for 4WD touring. You can take a guided 4WD tour on the Womerah Range Track, which runs along the south-west border of
the park. Contact the Gosford office for more information.
Picnics and barbecues: You'll find a picnic area with tables, toilets and barbecues at the Mogo Creek camping area on Mogo Creek Road, just south of
Lookouts: A short walk to Finchley Trig on the Finchley Track will give you a superb panoramic view of the park and uninterrupted bush as far as the eye
can see. There are also excellent views from the Womerah Range Track, which follows the south-west border of the park. This track is accessible on foot
or by guided 4WD tour only.
Other attractions: You can mountain bike the 43 kilometre section of the Old Great North Road in a day, or take alternative shorter routes. The Womerah
Range Track is also suitable for mountain bike riding. When cycling in the park, make sure you take along plenty of water.
