National Parks


National parks abound in this area of NSW. Visitors can take time out to explore the unparalleled landscapes of steep gorges, clear waters and magnificent tracts of ancient rainforest. You’ll find some of the most varied and least-disturbed forest in NSW, including the world’s largest stand of coachwood trees and extraordinary specimens of giant red cedar.

The Gibraltar Range and Washpool National Parks are part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area, and offer wonderful wilderness walks lasting half an hour to several days, along with simple, miles-from-care camping and picnicking opportunities in gorgeous surrounds.

This area is also a natural haven for an incredible diversity of plants, mammals, amphibians, reptiles and birds, including some of Australia’s rarest and most unusual creatures, like the pouched frog, the long-nosed potoroo, and the beautiful, cat-like spotted-tailed quoll.

Birdwatchers will be in their element here – more than 140 species have been recorded, including the rufous scrub bird and the increasingly rare powerful owl.


Mann River Caravan Park is the closest fully serviced camping facility to these parks.
