Tapin Tops National Park (10,828 hectares) is located on Knodingbul Road, approximately 30kms north-west of Wingham.
The Tapin Tops Rest Area is a well developed picnic area, with amenities, gas BBQs, picnic shelters and some gorgeous shady camp spots. The park was once a forestry work camp and features an array of European deciduous trees that do well in this mountain environment. Most noticeable is the row of impressive Californian redwoods which were planted in the rich volcanic soil in the early 1960’s.
Two walks are available off the picnic area, an easy 15 minute rainforest walk featuring a variety of rainforest species like Red Cedar, Coachwood, Brushbox, Corkwood and Yellow Carabeen. Or opt for the more strenuous 35 minute walk through open Sclerophyll forest, taking in some stunning trees and ferns commonly found in the area. If you love views and vistas make sure you check out Rowley’s Rock and Blue Knob lookouts.
Potoroo Picnic area located on Little Run Creek is a beautiful place for a picnic. The spectacular Potoroo Falls lie a kilometre upstream past NSW’s largest recorded watergum in the adjacent State Forest. Take your swimming gear on a hot day, the water’s great.
