Box Vale Walking Track and Picnic Area

Natural Attractions

The Box Vale Walking track follows the formation of a historic railway line and passes through cuttings, along embankments and through a tunnel 84 metres in length. Although much of the surrounding terrain is steep and rocky, the 4.4-kilometre walking track has easy grades and the return walk takes approximately three hours. There is also a 1.8-kilometre spur track through pleasant bushland to Forty Foot Falls. The initial 1.5 kilometre is along a fire trail of easy grade and the return walk takes about one hour.

However, the Falls cannot be seen from the end of the fire trail and a very steep track (dropping 110 metres in elevation) leads to a vantage point below the falls. This section would be quite difficult for a person not accustomed to negotiating such tracks. The return walk along the entire 1.8-kilometre spur track takes about two hours. There are picnic tables located at the beginning of the track car park. The track head is located about 250 metres off the Hume Highway. The turn off is located 3.7 kilometres west of Mittagong and 0.8 kilometres east of the Wombeyan Caves Road.

Maps are available from the Southern Highlands Welcome Centre, Mittagong.
