Fire affected area

Some areas of this park were affected by fire in 2019/2020. You’ll notice some changes to the landscape, as well as signs of recovery. Some areas may remain closed for longer to allow habitat to recover or because we’re repairing park infrastructure. Stay safe with these after-fire tips for visitors.

Nomads picnic area is at the start of Thunderbolts lookout walking track, in Torrington State Conservation Area, near Tenterfield. Unwind in this peaceful forest setting before or after your walk.
