Mt Waa

  • Grade context: AU


Mt Waa is the remnants of an ancient volcanic plug that towers over the surrounding plains. It is part of Mt Kaputar National Park and is accessed via the same approach as Waa Gorge. Its towering Trachyite cliffs offer near endless potential for trad and sport routes.

Access issues

Allambie road is dry weather access only. Access is through private property so take care to leave gates as you find them.

The crag is in a National Park so please tread lightly and leave no trace. There is a toilet in the car park, please use it instead of the bush.


From Narrabri drive north along Newell Highway towards Moree for 3km then turn right onto Killarney Gap Road (Bingara Road). After about 21km, turn left onto Melburra Road (SR3 to Terry Hie Hie). After approximately 30km, you’ll reach a T-junction. Turn right on Allambie Road to Waa Gorge. Travel 6.5km to the park entrance. Waa Gorge carpark and picnic area is a further 1.5km.

From the Car park head off in the bush following a faint track 20m to the right of the toilet if you are standing in the centre of the car park. The trail fades and wade through the bush following goat tracks to the main faces steeply uphill.
