In Whian Whian State Conservation Area, north of Lismore, you’ll find cycling, hiking and horse riding trails, as well as waterfalls and creeks for swimming and fishing.
Just to the north of Lismore, Whian Whian State Conservation Area was formed to protect an area that surrounds Nightcap National Park. This charming area and its surrounds are chock-full of fantastic, fun things to do outdoors.
It’s a great spot from which to enjoy some of the day walks in the area, take a picnic, or go on a mountain bike ride. For longer adventures, you can base yourself at the tranquil forest setting at Rummery Park campground. This small but well-equipped campground is popular with overnight bushwalkers undertaking the Historic Nightcap track from Mount Nardi, some 18km to the west.
There are plenty of trails in Whian Whian and Nightcap, where you can hike, cycle, or even horse ride among the ancient towering kauri, bunya and hoop pines. Native Australian animals such as goannas, kookaburras and brush-tail possums will accompany your adventures, as well as threatened species such as the spotted-tailed quoll, koalas and Albert’s lyrebird.
