You’ll find Grandis picnic area set among the lush coastal forests on the western edge of Myall Lakes National Park. Just off Pacific Highway, north of Bulahdelah, this picnic spot is only a short stroll to The Grandis, the tallest known tree in NSW. It’s a great pit stop on a road trip or an excellent introduction to the natural wonders of this beautiful park.

Unpack the picnic basket in the shady cool at one of the tables in the rainforest fringed picnic area and enjoy a bite to eat. With the nearby wheelchair accessible boardwalk, you’ll want to head over and gaze up at the magnificent flooded gum that towers above at a height of over 70 metres. Take your binoculars if you want to birdwatch.

If you’re suitably inspired to explore the park, there’s a range of bushwalking, boating, and camping options to suit everyone. Why not stay a night or two at Shelley Beach campground and take in the unique waterways?
