Deep in the forest of Willi Willi National Park, Wilson River picnic area is a great base to explore much of what this park has to offer. There’s a choice of three scenic walking tracks, through sub-tropical and warm temperate rainforest, along the river, and to a sparkling waterfall and plunge pool.

You’ll find walks of various lengths at this picnic area. Botanic walk is a gentle, 300m loop while Palm Grove walk returns over 1km with an easy grade, leading from the Wilson River picnic area through blue gums and lush green ferns to Glade picnic area beside Wilson River.

Waterfall walk is the longest track at 3.5km, and is for those who prefer a moderate challenge. On this lovely walk, you’ll pass close to a magnificent strangler fig, then through sub-tropical and warm temperate rainforest, to a waterfall and pool. If all else fails and you’d prefer to just relax simply roll out a picnic blanket, strike up the free gas barbecues for a sausage sizzle, and while away the hours in this idyllic picnic area.
