Warrarla (Gum Grove) Trail, Mt Augustus NP


The one-kilometre return (Gum Grove) Trail or Warrarla is an easy Grade 3 walk in Mt Augustus National Park.  Its main point of interest is an expansive grove of mature river red gums which attract the birdlife.

About the Trail

Wherever you find lots of river red gums, you find water or at least a dry creek bed. River gums host a wide variety of birdlife, including various finches, corellas and birds of prey. Linger for a while under a shady tree and take in nature.

Most able-bodied people should be able to complete this trail without too much effort. The well-marked trail ends where Kotka Gorge Trail starts.  This provides a bigger challenge.
