When the heavy rains fall over Cocoparra, Store Creek fills up in a scenic rush of fresh water. But Store Creek picnic area is beautiful even when the bed is dry, attracting families and day visitors throughout the year.

Although a popular stop in Cocoparra National Park, it’s still easy to find privacy to enjoy a relaxing lunch in open woodland. Between April and October, when the weather is milder, beautiful sprays of wildflowers can be seen all around, including wattles, daisies, ground orchids, and tea-trees.

If you want to spend the afternoon stretching your legs and seeing some of the local wilderness, Store Creek walking track begins at the picnic area and threads through cypress pines and bimble box, all the way to a stunning natural amphitheatre formed by the junction of two creeks. It’s quite a sight, and definitely worth the trip. Don’t forget your camera either: birds like the fairy-wren like to frolic in the area, making birdwatching a treat.
