At 1140m, Bar Mountain picnic area stands at about the same elevation as the summit of Wollumbin-Mount Warning, making it the highest accessible area of Border Ranges National Park and the best place to admire the park’s stands of ancient Antarctic beech trees.
The picnic area is just next to Tweed Range scenic drive, a 2WD all-weather gravel car touring road, and makes for a perfect pit stop for a bite to eat.
Birdwatchers should keep their eyes open for interesting species here, including Albert’s lyrebird, regent bowerbirds, olive whistlers, marbled frogmouths and scarlet honeyeaters. Pademelons, brush turkeys and grey goshawks are often seen along Tweed Range Scenic Drive, too.
