Hearts Point picnic area is a lovely spot for a break in the northern edge of Myall Lakes National Park, at Neranie, that overlooks scenic Myall Lake. It’s a great spot for a family picnic on a day trip, or a pit stop while car touring in the park.
There’s a large grassy area where the kids can run around, while you cook up a feast on the free gas barbecues. Enjoy a leisurely lunch while you take in the tranquil vista. After eating, check out Neranie Headland walking track with its spectacular views and abundant birdlife, and take a stroll through the historic timber town of Neranie. Remember to take your binoculars if you want to birdwatch.
You can even launch the canoe and paddle the idyllic waterways. If you’re tempted to stay, head to nearby Neranie campground for a relaxing lakeside holiday.
