Located 1km from the Dorrigo Rainforest Centre, The Glade picnic area is a great spot for barbecues and picnics. It’s set in a peaceful clearing, surrounded by amazing rainforest.

The area has great facilities and offers stunning views from its elevated lookout. After a picnic lunch there are lots of walking tracks to explore, like the Crystal Shower Falls walk that starts nearby.

Besides its natural beauty, The Glade picnic area has free barbecues, as well as undercover and outdoor picnic tables. And don’t be surprised if a brush turkey or a wallaby sneaks up to join your barbecue. The Glade picnic area is also home to the park's field study centre.
