Pipers Creek picnic area marks the southern gateway to Myall Lakes National Park, just north of Hawks Nest on the Central coast. It’s a rustic creek-side spot near Myall River and a great place to relax and re-fuel on a walking or paddling adventure.
Pull up the boat or canoe, unpack a picnic lunch and enjoy the tranquil river views amid the cackling calls of kookaburras and rainbow lorikeets. You might even glimpse an eastern water dragon sunning itself on the creek banks.
Alternatively accessed on foot via Pipers Creek fire trail, it’s a great spot to join the long Mungo walking track that leads to Mungo Brush. For a shorter walk, head north to Stewart and Lloyds campground and walk back along Mungo Brush Road.
