Barrington Tops National Park
Best known for its superb bushwalking among ancient Antarctic beech forest and rainforest that receives snow several times a year, this 83 403-hectare park is one of the highest spots on the Great Dividing Range and even has snow gums. There are plenty of recommended walks: the 20-kilometre aptly named Corker Trail to Careys Peak on the Dungog side; the 1-kilometre Antarctic Beech Forest Track near Gloucester; and to lookouts such as Devils Hole. You will see lyrebirds, brush-turkeys and maybe scarlet honeyeaters and noisy pitas, as well as rednecked wallabies hiding in the mist.
