Set beneath a beautiful backdrop of tall hoop pine forest, The Pines picnic area offers a tranquil retreat and a relaxing spot for a family picnic. Located along Way Way Creek Road drive, the picnic area is perfect for cooking up a storm on the free barbecues, spread a picnic blanket, lie back and listen to the sounds of the rainforest drift over you.
Stroll along the short 300m rainforest walking track and let the kids discover the incredible natural world under its canopy. You’ll find a diversity of plant life and enjoy watching the colourful array of birdlife. Listen out for the bubbling "wom-poo" call of the wompoo fruit dove and look for its multi-coloured plumage amongst the Bangalow palms.
Admire the striking Aboriginal artwork, designed and created by local Aboriginal artists with the assistance of a mosaic artist. This unique sculpture highlights the spiritual importance of this area for local Aboriginal culture. Nearby Yarriabini lookout offers stunning regional views.
