Mt Nardi – Pholis Gap Walking Trail

Natural Attractions

Explore the lush subtropical rainforests and beautiful waterfalls of the World-Heritage Listed National Parks, formed from the Wollumbin shield volcano over 20 million years ago.

The track was named after Athol Pholi who was killed by a tree fall while working in the area. Beginning at Mt Nardi the track meanders through the rainforest for a kilometre before splitting off the Mt Matheson Loop and descending towards the escarpment edge.

Drier vegetation dominated by grass trees and New England Blackbutt typify the walk to Pholis Gap which offers views of Mt Warning and surrounding valleys.
