    Best times to visit

    There are lots of great things waiting for you in Wollumbin National Park. Here are some of the highlights.


    Look out for macropods and young birds as they prepare to head out by themselves and find their own home range.


    During this season, the forest floor comes alive with colour and activity while the canopy blooms with flowers and bears fruit above. Birds display their breeding plumage while animals taking advantage of the free bounty. The sweet fragrance of nectar fills the forest to entice insects, birds, bats and mammals.


    The frequency of spectacular afternoon storms means this can be a great time for photographers.


    Enjoy the clear blue skies common during this season of stable highs which dominate the Northern Rivers region in winter.
