Summer, winter, or any time, there are loads of reasons to come to Toonumbar National Park in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales – this park has it all.

Visit this beautiful park and be ready to experience World Heritage areas rich with Aboriginal heritage, abundant wildlife, an ancient volcano and incredible views. Go bushwalking along some great tracks, enjoy picnics, go birdwatching, camp beneath towering gums, or delight in some scenic horse riding.

All the different habitats in the park, from subtropical rainforests and pristine creeks to ancient eroded volcanic remains, are home to lots of amazing plant and animal species, including noisy paradise riflebirds and fruit-eating pigeons, owls, carpet pythons, koalas and red-necked pademelons.

Go in summer to camp by Iron Pot Creek and enjoy a refreshing swim, or on winter mornings watch mist rising above the rainforest and the eroded volcanic peaks from Murray Scrub lookout.
