The Mount Yarrowyck Nature Reserve is a protected nature reserve that is located on the Northern Tablelands in the New England region of New South Wales, in eastern Australia. The 585-hectare (1,450-acre) reserve is situated near Yarrowyck and 30 kilometres (19 mi) west of Armidale.

Features[edit]

Located near the junction of the Armidale Road and Thunderbolts Way, the reserve protects an Aboriginal cave painting site and much of the natural environment of Mount Yarrowyck. The reserve's Aboriginal cultural walk, a 3-kilometre (1.9 mi) return track, runs along the granite slopes of the mountain to the cave painting site.

The track passes through one of the few remnants of natural bushland on the western slopes of the New England Tablelands. The walking track is clear and easy to follow and, apart from one short section, is level and undemanding.[2]
