Washpool National Park
Considered to be at biological crossroads, this stunning area gets many species towards the edges of their ranges. Take one of the walks – either the 8.5-kilometre Washpool Walk to Summit Falls and Washpool Lookout through warm temperate rainforests or the 1.5-kilometre Coombadjha Nature Stroll to a swimming hole – and you are likely to see a huge range of birds (the rare rufous-scrub bird is one of the bird species found here) land mullets, snakes and maybe even platypus and pademelons. There are a couple of basic campgrounds.
