Yerong Walking Track walk in The Rock Nature Reserve - Kengal Aboriginal Place starts at the car park at the entrance to the reserve. The walk is fairly gentle at the start but becomes steeper the closer you get to the amazing views at to top of 'The Rock', that the area is named after. Take your time and enjoy the views. Let us begin by acknowledging the Wiradjuri people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
