Information

Known as Kengal to the local Wiradjuri people, The Rock towers 250 metres over the surrounding countryside, and is thought to have been a site for initiation ceremonies. The reserve is an island of natural habitat for native animals, including the turquoise parrot and glossy black cockatoo.
If you're an energetic bushwalker you'll enjoy the climb to the top of the 3-km Yerong Nature Trail where, on a clear day, you can see Mt Kosciuszko and the Victorian Alps. The walk passes through a variety of vegetation communities, with signs guiding you through the changes and pointing out highlights. The refurbished picnic area on the lower slopes has toilets, a covered table, a gas barbecue area and a large carpark. There are no camping facilities but accommodation is available at The Rock village, other neighbouring towns and Wagga Wagga.
Access 30 km south-west of Wagga Wagga off the Olympic Highway. A short all-weather, unsealed road connects the picnic facilities and carpark to the Lockhart Road.
