Near Murwillumbah and Tweed Heads, Mebbin National Park is a paradise for nature-lovers. It’s a significant nature conservation area, which protects an important part of the Tweed landscape while also serving as a vital habitat link between the World Heritage areas of Wollumbin and Border Ranges national parks. A large portion of the park is dry eucalypt forest, with some rainforest and a small section of old growth forest.

Explore the park’s lush environment by following Byrrill Creek walking track through sub-tropical rainforest and fig trees. Or, enjoy mountain biking or horseback riding along the trails that wind under towering eucalyptus trees.

Along your way, be sure to keep your eyes open for glimpses of some of the park’s rare, threatened species, such as large owls, lace monitor lizards, glossy black-cockatoos, and red-legged pademelons. The endangered giant barred frog is rarely seen, but may be heard calling out across the park on hot summer nights.

There are pleasant areas for camping and picnicking at Cutters Camp campground. Set in a lovely forested setting with free wood and gas barbecues, the campground is popular with families, birdwatchers and bushwalkers alike.
