Barrington Tops National Park is a must for nature lovers. This vast, undulating basalt-capped plateau rises sharply from the surrounding valleys to a height of almost 1,600 metres where€“ you'll find a wonder world of gushing streams, waterfalls, forests and soaring cliffs. Chichester Dam is a great place to picnic with the kids, and Chichester State Forest offers beautiful riverside camping spots.
