Step into the diverse ecosystems of Mount Jerusalem National Park. As you explore the park’s walking tracks you’ll marvel at the tall eucalypt forests and subtropical and warm temperate rainforest that dominates the creek lines.
After your bushwalk, cool off beside a beautiful creek or waterfall. Keep an eye out for some of the many threatened species that call the park their home, including Albert’s lyrebird and the red-legged pademelon. You might see native birds feasting on the bright red berries of the bangalow palm when it flowers in winter.
With easy access from Byron Bay, Mullumbimby and Uki, Mount Jerusalem National park is ideal for day trips and excellent for bush walkers, bird watchers, horse riders and naturalists.
And from 2022 you’ll have the option to tackle multi-day bush walks, stay overnight in rainforest campgrounds, and enjoy panoramic views from a selection of high-quality lookouts. The popular Unicorn Falls will also be redeveloped as a day use area, providing picnic areas, toilets and parking.
