National Parks Walks

 

The Barrington’s are carved out of an ancient volcano; the Barrington Tops National Park rises to over 1500 metres above sea level and in the lower valleys, you will find World Heritage-listed subtropical rainforests. Up on the plateau, there is subalpine woodland which regularly sees snow in winter. There are six rivers that run through the forests of this mountainous park.

 

The park's varied environment protects over 50 rare and threatened species, most of the area is declared wilderness, and it's a very well-known destination for birdwatchers and bushwalkers.

 

The park is a bushwalker’s paradise, with an excellent walking track network that includes short and easy walks through to more difficult treks.

 

There are plenty of picnic and barbecue areas with amenities to be enjoyed and the views from the park’s lookouts are spectacular on a good day.

 

Fishing is also a popular activity in the park between October and May where you could land a rainbow or brown trout.
