Abercrombie River NP

The Abercrombie National Park preserves the largest remaining intact patch of low open forest in the south-west tableland area of New South Wales.
This trek offers the visitor some moderate four-wheel driving and picturesque camping sites beside the Abercrombie River and Silent Creek. Visitors may be lucky enough to spot platypuses and activities include swimming, canoeing and trout fishing. Click for Abercrombie River NP.

Notice the new format?
Although this is a work in progress, we are quickly converting existing treks so all will appear as per the new featured Trek above. You'll see that a new Interactive Map & Route that actually “drives” the route file on your screen and shows photos and details of each waypoint. Being automatically extracted from real plot files and fully integrated with Places, this means that ExplorOz Trek Notes are now an online experience where you become the desk-chair passenger. You can even take the wheel and change the controls. We’ve been a bit sneaky and launched this new-format before its been fully finished so forgive us if a few details you are used to seeing in Trek Notes are currently missing – its “under construction”. For the more technical, the new trek notes are in .aspx format. More to come…
Pick this Place
This competition only runs if people send in new Places to be featured. To keep this competition going, please email ExplorOz with a challenging photo of a Place you've been, along with extra photos that are more typical. We also require the Place title, a good description and a lat/long position. Playing is easy - just enter a title and state, choose your prize and press the 'Enter' button.Click to Play.
