Gaze in wonder at the giant tallowwood trees, go for a refreshing swim in Nymboida River and choose between several easy bushwalks while exploring Moonpar Forest drive. This half-day circuit through Nymboi-Binderay National Park and Cascade National Park warrants some extra time to take in all its delights.
Stop for morning tea at Norman Jolly Memorial Grove and take a stroll along the beautiful Coachwood loop track, with its majestic trees that tower above you and are around 800 years old. Explore the relics of the former timber industry at Cascade National Park, and take advantage of the barbecues and picnic area at Platypus Flat campground.
Along the river, look for the wild residents. Turtles, cormorants and platypus all hunt here, wild ducks raise their young on the banks, and you might see kingfishers, lorikeets and lace monitors.
