Starting with cypress pine and silver leaf ironbark woodland, the track then weaves through open grassland and smooth bark apple woodland. In spring, wildflowers bloom abundantly, spreading colours across the landscape.
Numerous birds occupy the area, so don’t forget to bring a pair of binoculars for birdwatching. Though there are places to rest as you walk, consider packing a picnic lunch and taking advantage of the facilities back at the picnic area.

Today, it’s a tranquil spot, scattered in sections around the small town, which is also called Terry Hie Hie. Terry Hie Hie Aboriginal Area is home to a staggering variety of native wildlife, including woodland birds, mammals, and reptiles. These can often be seen in lush communities of cypress pine and silver leaf ironbark woodland.
Evidence of long-term use of the area includes at least 240 axe-grinding grooves and the remains of a corroboree ground. A bora, several carved trees, scarred trees, and two Aboriginal cemeteries can also be found nearby. The local community and descendants of the Kamilaroi People often visit for cultural, recreational and educational purposes.
Terry Hie Hie Aboriginal Area also has an innovative educational program that provides teachers and students a rare opportunity to learn about the language, history and culture of Kamileroi people.
