National Parks


NSW North Coast - Tapin Tops National Park

This park is for people who want to experience a dazzling range of forests. Brushwood and moist eucalypt forest gives way to rainforest dominated by corkwood, crabapple, sassafras and booyong trees, while yellow carabeen are found in the higher areas. The unique habitat is home to threatened species such as the parma wallaby, squirrel glider and sphagnum frog.

Rowleys Lookout (1018 metres, strenuous 45-minute walk from carpark) offers a sweeping view of Head and Shoulders Cliff. In the middle of the rainforest you’ll find Dingo Tops forest park, with picnic facilities, relic forestry machinery, and two walking trails. There is another picnic area at Potoroo, and car-based camping in an area on the intersection of Knodingbul Road and Dingo Tops Road (short walk from carpark).


44 km west of Wingham along the Dingo Tops Forest Road
