Richmond Range National Park

Affected by closures, check current alerts 


Cambridge Plateau picnic area, close to Casino and Kyogle, is an idyllic spot for picnicking that’s also great for birdwatching.

Picnic areas
What to
Hat, sunscreen, drinking water
Please note
Remember to take your binoculars if you want to birdwatch.

Cambridge Plateau picnic area is in the southern precinct of Richmond Range National Park and offers comfortable, well-maintained facilities for those looking for a place to rest after exploring the park. On a ridge nestled among towering tallowwood and flooded gums, the picnic area enjoys majestic scenic views over forests that stretch toward the Richmond valley. Keep your camera ready - long-nosed potoroos like to wriggle through at the edge of the bush, or you may receive a visit from a yellow-bellied glider or brush-tail possum at night.

Culmaran Valley walking track also begins here, rising toward the head of the valley, where outlooks continue for miles across to the east of Wollumbin and Nightcap national parks.

The Culmaran loop trail is also accessible nearby for those who prefer an easy walk through tall, healthy, dry woodlands at the edge of nearby World Heritage rainforest.
