This is a stunning and remote hike, dotted along the way with diverse and unique pockets of Australian wild flowers, The Wog Wog to Corang River hike is a great little overnight hike trek through rugged bushland on the edge of the Budawang Wilderness area.

Part of the Morton National Park, with a narrow, yet clearly distinguished track, this is a great taste of some of Australia’s most rugged wilderness areas located on the South Coast of NSW, just three hours drive from Sydney.

To get there from the sleepy town of Nerriga, travel south west along Nerriga Road for 17km until you reach Charley’s Forest Road. Turn left and continue along this road for approximately 6km until you reach the Wog Wog car park. The trail head is on the eastern side of the carpark, next to an information sign.  

The walking tail is clearly marked and initially takes you down into a wide gully with some narrow boardwalks helping guide you over the first section. At the end of the boardwalk, the trail then morphs into a well-worn track that winds around for approximately 3km before you reach an intersection at GR 932 330 (LPI Map - Corang 8927-3N 1:25000). Take the left hand track at this point. This takes you through some more dense bushland, up and down gullies and through some low lying scrub all the way down to the Corang River.

Whilst this is a tracked walk, don't be lulled into a false sense security. It's a challenging track and the roughly 6.5km hike can take several hours depending on your fitness and the heat. There's only a slight change in the elevation overall, however, there's quite a few descents into gullies and steep climbs out of them. This is a real wilderness area and quite remote, so you need to come prepared.

As you’re approaching the campsite the area opens up to some great views of the sounding area before funnelling you down into the camp ground next to the serene and picturesque Corang River. The river meanders through ancient volcanic rock, leading to an amazing swimming hole a couple of hundred metres from the camp.

This is an amazing overnight trip and well worth doing as a way to introduce yourself to the stark rugged beauty of the Budawangs.

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.
