A world heritage national park at the highest point of the Barrington Coast.

Immerse yourself in the World Heritage-listed Gondwana Rainforests of Barrington Tops National Park. Easy walks, overnight hikes, great picnic, fishing and camping spots await.

The rainforests of Barrington Tops National Park are of international significance; forming part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area. Carved out of ancient volcanic flows, the park rises from near sea level to 1,586m and protects one of the largest temperate rainforests in mainland Australia, along with a host of diverse habitats and wide range of birds and animals.

The park is a bushwalker’s paradise, with an excellent walking track network that includes short and easy walks to more difficult overnight hikes, with plenty of sites to set up a bush camp for the evening.

For those visiting for the day, there are lots of picnic and barbecue areas to enjoy, cycling trails to be explored and views from the park’s lookouts that need to be seen to be believed. Fishing is a popular activity in the park between October and May; you might catch a rainbow or brown trout.

Have been to the park a few years back and the waterways of this park had the most colourful cray fish I’ve ever seen in my life! Second time around the following year they weren’t there and not sure if it’s the time I visited or the climate change that caused this difference. Still a great place to visit though.

Did the family friendly loop trail and enjoyed it! There are Leeches so better go with proper preparation. Ok for kids above 4 as long as they are fit for a little adventure. Can get in to the river at the mid point of the loop and the water is crystal clear.

Did a drive through 2 days ago. What an amazing place. Camping sites look excellent and all that we stopped at were nice and clean with excellent facilities. The campers we spoke to were all very happy with their sites and the park in general. Everything is well signposted but nevertheless don't go into the park without some form of map that you know how to read or operate well. A group of people approached us who were lost trying to find their booked campsite as all they had was a small out of scale map from a brochure. Bottom line lovely park. Heaps to see and do but do your research and come prepared.

Camping grounds feel remote and scary not for first timers. Flow of manning river is too good. Not much wild life except for some native red birds.

Great for camping trip or stay in town & go for a day trip. Lots of easy short walks with clear paths even pretty just to drive around. Most campgrounds have environmental toilets. I stayed for a week & will definitely go back. My car is a suzuki swift & handled the normal roads fine (avoided the 4WD only tracks!!)
