Picnic areas
Bindarri National Park
Please note
  • It’s a good idea to put sunscreen on before you set out and remember to take a hat
  • Remember to take your binoculars if you want to birdwatch
  • Firewood is not supplied and may not be collected from the park
  • Check the weather before you set out as the road to Bindarray picnic area can become impassable due to a flooding river crossing when it rains
  • A current NSW recreational fishing licence is required when fishing in all waters

Looking for something to do with the kids, far away from the holiday crowds? Then pack a picnic and head to Bindarray picnic area, where you’ll find a relaxing place to picnic on the banks of the sparkling Urumbilum River.

The whole family will enjoy swimming in river pools and the kids will love spotting frogs and, if they’re lucky, they might even see a platypus in the clear waters.

For birdwatchers, there’s plenty to see. Keep an ear out for the bubbling ‘wom-poo’ call of the wompoo fruit-dove and look out for its multi-coloured plumage among the Bangalow palms. You’ll also see other fruit-loving birds like green catbird, white-headed pigeon, brown cuckoo-dove and fig bird.

Stop for a refreshing swim on your way along Orara Escarpment 4WD touring route, or come for the day and laze away the afternoon by the crystal clear waters.
