Picnic among lush World Heritage-listed rainforest by the banks of Brindle creek at this delightfully shady picnic area.
Hitting the park’s walking tracks is a great way to stretch your legs or work up an appetite for lunch, and a few of them start from Brindle Creek picnic area. Try the scenic Brindle Creek walking track, a longer walk that passes through Antarctic beech rainforest, past waterfalls and swimming holes, or the short and easy Red Cedar loop to see a giant red cedar tree – 48m tall, it's probably about 1000 years old.
The picnic area is quite shaded and receives a lot of rainfall, so you’re likely to find it lush and damp. Because of this, barbecues are not provided, so if your sights are set on a hot lunch, you'll find barbecues 5km down the road at the Antarctic Beech picnic area.
