Werrikimbe National Park, near Port Macquarie and Tamworth, offers walks through World Heritage rainforest, camping, picnicking, scenic drives and 4WD trails.
If you’re looking to get away from the crowds and explore pristine wilderness, then Werrikimbe National Park is the place for you.
Part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area, it’s a unique natural landscape with ancient rainforest, tall eucalypt forests, pristine rivers, cascading waterfalls, rugged escarpment and deep gullies. In spring, the forests and heathland burst with colourful wildflowers.
Visit for the day, or spend a few more enjoying the tranquility of secluded campgrounds, walking tracks, and picnic areas.

If you’re lucky, you might spot rare bird species like olive whistlers, rufous scrub-birds and sooty owls.
