Basket Swamp National Park


Basket Swamp National Park was created in January 1999. It covers an area of 2820ha. For detailed park and fire management documents, visit the OEH website.

Highlights: Basket Swamp is an important wetland of heaths and sedges. It cleans, stores and slowly releases water throughout the year into local creeks that run into the coastal Clarence River system.

Activities: This is a woodland park without facilities that would suit self-reliant bushwalkers. It includes Timbarra Lookout and gives access to nearby Basket Swamp Falls and the Woollool Woolloolni Aboriginal Place. Boonoo State Forest, which has a picnic and camping area with tables and toilet, is directly north.

Access: 14 km north-east of Tenterfield off the Mt Lindesay (Woodenbong) Road (partly unpaved).

These maps give a basic overview of park attractions and facilities, and may not be detailed enough for some activities. We recommend that you buy a topographic map before you go exploring.
