Scenic lookouts such as Rowleys Rock lookout provide astounding panoramic views out across Taree and the ocean beyond. Wander through the park’s subtropical rainforest and old growth eucalypt trees with its richly diverse plant and animal habitat, which dingoes and other interesting native species call home.
Mountain Brush circuit offers an easy, yet rewarding, stroll through the rainforest. Potoroo Falls walk is a fun, easy walk that involves a bit of rock jumping along a creek down to the falls and their swimming waterhole. If you’re in the mood for something a little more strenuous, hike up to the top of Rowleys Rock for incredible mountain views.
Dingo Tops campground is the perfect place to base yourself if you're exploring the park for more than a day-trip.
