Get away from everything and discover remote bushland on Hastings Forest Way touring route. This scenic drive is a fantastic way to explore the wilderness and falls country of Werrikimbe National Park. Make it a day trip or camp overnight at Brushy Mountain or Plateau Beech campground.

The 122 kilometre return touring route from Wauchope to Brushy Mountain climbs from 100 metres above sea level to 1,100 metres near Spokes Mountain. The journey takes you through the woodlands and heath, dotted with colourful wildflowers in spring and into ancient Gondwana rainforest.

For rewarding views, make a side-trip to Number One Tower picnic area or take your four wheel drive along the isolated Racecourse trail up the escarpment to Mooraback campground and continue on to Walcha.

Stop to enjoy a peaceful picnic and take advantage of the great birdwatching. You’ll see a range of forest birds such as eastern yellow robins, scarlet robins and rufous fantails.
