Mt Grenfell Historic Site
The Mt Grenfell Historic Site is located 67 kilometres north-west of Cobar on the Barrier Highway. The site, managed by the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service, is accessed by turning off the highway at the 40 kilometres turn-off. The road is un-sealed for the next 27 kilometres. This road is good, but access by caravans or buses is not recommended.
Mt Grenfell features wonderful examples of ancient Aboriginal rock art by the local Wongaibon people. Visitors will also find scarred trees, ochre pits and a waterhole, testimony to the region's Aboriginal heritage. Three art sites, featuring interpretive signage and within easy walking distance to the main parking area make this site accessible for every visitor.
At the main entry carpark area, picnic and barbecue facilities with tank water are provided. Camping is not permitted. If you are feeling energetic, the 5km walking track leads to a lookout offering superb views across the Cobar pedi plain.
Visitors to the site do not require permission to enter.
