Australia can be a naturelover’s paradise, and Nightcap National Park is no exception. Located in northeast New South Wales, the World Heritage listed rainforests of the park present a spectacular backdrop for outdoor adventures such as hiking, camping, picnics and bushwalks. The historic trails and Aboriginal landmarks of Nightcap offer a look at an ancient, untouched Australia — including the 20 million year old Wollumbin shield volcano.
For the adventure hound, Nightcap boasts breathtaking tracks and trails to get adrenaline pumping. Animal lovers will appreciate the park’s conservation efforts to protect threatened wildlife like the masked owl and regent bowerbirds, while nature nuts can explore the meandering creeks as they give way to the cascading waterways of Minyon Falls, all set to a soundtrack of chattering critters and rare amphibians.
Nightcap National Park is located at Newton Drive, about 19 miles (30 kilometers) north of Lismore and 19 miles (30 kilometers) southeast of Murwillumbah in New South Wales. The park is open from sunrise to sunset, pending poor weather or fire danger. While there is no fee to enter the park, the costs of activities, including camping, may vary.
