Weddin Mountains National Park. Grenfell

This striking crescent of cliffs and ridged gullies is reputed to be a bushrangers’ haunt — Ben Halls cave is named for one of the area’s most infamous rogues. Any trip to Weddin Mountains National Park can’t help but include a scenic drive. On a clear day, the mountain can be seen rising above the landscape from over 50 km away. Watching it gradually loom ever closer is one of the real treats of a visit to the park.
The journey around the base of the mountain en route to the major visitor destinations such as Holy Camp or Ben Halls camping ground and picnic area is a striking feature ideally suited to both bicycle and car touring.
