Overview

Fire affected area

Some areas of this park were affected by fire in 2019/2020. You’ll notice some changes to the landscape, as well as signs of recovery. Some areas may remain closed for longer to allow habitat to recover or because we’re repairing park infrastructure. Stay safe with these after-fire tips for visitors.

The Nymboida River runs through the heart of Nymboi-Binderay National Park, making it a popular destination for intrepid white-water rafters and kayakers. A short section of the river at Platypus Flat is suitable for swimming, otherwise the river is for experienced white-water paddlers only.

Although rafting is the best way to fully appreciate the park’s stunning beauty, Moonpar Forest drive offers an alternative option while experienced bushwalkers will love exploring the park’s landscape on foot along unmarked trails, through tallowwood trees and coachwood rainforest. It’s a great place to escape to nature for the weekend.

The stunning rainforests and extensive old forests in Nymboi-Binderay provide a habitat for a variety of threatened animals like the powerful owl, stuttering frog as well as the more common koala and kookaburra. Plus, amongst the park’s 55 metre tall eucalypts, you’ll discover the remnants of the early timber industry and historic days of the axe, crosscut saw and steam tramways.
