If you love oxygen-rich rainforests, then you’ve got to try Booyong walking track from Sheepstation Creek campground or Forest Tops campground. This long walk is a perfect introduction to the lush world of Border Ranges National Park in northern NSW. Retracing the historic steps of the old loggers, you’ll pass thick forests of majestic booyong trees. Look for the birds nest ferns and lilies that grow from the old stumps; a reminder of nature’s ability to restore and reclaim.
The dense canopy makes this a great place for birdwatching, so bring your binoculars. Here, you might see the regent bowerbird or the vibrant green catbird with its mournful call. If you’re lucky, you might get a glimpse of the black-breasted button-quail, only found in this area.
And if you’re feeling extra energetic, be sure take a detour onto the picturesque Rosewood loop.
