Gur-um-bee picnic area is an ideal base to explore the coastal forests within Wallingat National park, either on a car tour or by mountain bike. Located on the NSW Mid North Coast, near Forster, it’s ideal for a leisurely family picnic.

Set within a tranquil bush setting of moist eucalypt forest with majestic flood gums and lush cabbage tree palms, this picnic area is a great spot for birdwatching. Look for king parrots and wonga pigeons and if you’re lucky, you might even see a shy bower bird darting through the bush. 

Unroll the picnic blanket in a shady spot on the grass or make use of the sheltered picnic tables. Either way, there’s plenty of space for the kids to kick a ball while you prepare lunch. For scenic views across the park, check out Whoota Whoota lookout, or enjoy a cycle or leisurely drive along Wallingat Forest drive.
