Relax at The Pines picnic area in Cocoparra National Park where you can have a barbecue, surrounded by white cypress pine and woodland birds, before taking one of Cocoparra’s beautiful bushwalks.

Picnic areas
What to
Hat, sunscreen, drinking water

The Pines picnic area is popular with visitors, especially families, looking for a pretty, peaceful spot for a rest. Equipped with a gas barbecue for serious picnickers, it’s easy to while away a few hours here.

Set in open woodland among white cypress pines, it’s perfect in the milder months from April to October, when you’ll see a variety of flowers including greenhood and pink and blue finger orchids. Nearby Woolshed Falls cascades after heavy rain, so be sure to take the short walk to see this waterfall if it’s been wet.

If you’re into birdwatching, many interesting birds can be spotted in the park. Look out for rufous whistlers, white-browed babblers, striated pardalotes, red-rumped parrots, painted honeyeaters and lots more.
