If you love waterfalls and ancient rainforest, then you can’t go past Brindle Creek walking track in the high country of Border Ranges National Park. Following the creek line, this medium walk passes through unspoilt wilderness from Brindle Creek picnic area to Antarctic beech picnic area in the north-east of Border Ranges National Park, near Kyogle.

Passing the turn off to Helmholtzia loop, you’ll think you stumbled into a timeless rainforest wonderland. Here you’ll see huge hoop pines and massive ancient Antarctic beech trees whose trunks grow thick and hairy with lichens and fragrant ferns. Keep your eye out for the huge helmholtzia lillies that thrive in the damp moist air. This high mountain plateau is a cloud factory all year round and you could be enveloped in mist even in the middle of summer.

Unpack a picnic beside picturesque Evans Falls where the swimming hole below the waterfall is ideal for a dip. Further along at Selva Falls, clean mountain water cascades over large moss-covered boulders.
