Answer the call of the wild with a World Heritage rainforest experience in Mount Hyland Nature Reserve. The distinctive three peaks of Mount Hyland are the highest point on the New England tablelands and offer breathtaking scenic views across the Dorrigo plateau. It’s a popular destination on a 4WD driving tour, offering superb walking, picnic and birdwatching opportunities.

A biodiversity hotspot, this remote and wild region is home to some rare and endangered wildlife. Both the Hastings River mouse and rare pouched frog were believed to be extinct and were rediscovered here, alive and well in the early 1980s.
