Whether you’re picnicking, camping or just passing by, the Coombadjha nature stroll is a Washpool National Park must-do.

From Coachwood Picnic Area, the 400m bitumen track takes you through World Heritage listed Rainforest to a viewing platform on the pretty Coombadjha Creek. Return the same way or continuing along the loop walk on a delightful journey along the banks of the pretty Coombadjha creek and through a variety of forest types.

You’ll find track posts along the easy walk offering insights on the flora and fauna of this special place. The creek viewing platform is a great spot to pause and refresh, while the fern-fringed, shallow Coachwood pool below is an inviting opportunity to cool off with a swim.
