You’ll find plenty of ways to explore this wilderness. There are short interesting walks, through rainforest and tall blue gums; wheelchair access is provided at Devils Hole lookout and Williams River picnic area. Car-based camping is available at various locations. Access is from Gloucester, Dungog and Scone.
