Granite Picnic Area

Granite picnic area is a lovely lunch spot just a stone’s throw from the stunning views of Granite lookout. Located just 300 metres from the Gwydir Highway off Coachwood Drive, it makes for an enjoyable stop-off if you’re passing by, or an impressive launching pad for your exploration of Washpool National Park.

With picnic tables and a well-equipped barbecue shelter, settle in for an ambient lunch in a pleasant, all-weather setting among the eucalypt trees.

After your barbecue, why not enjoy an easy amble along the 800 metre Granite lookout walk through dry open forest and rocky granite outcrops to the lookout, where you’ll be rewarded with picturesque views across the south-eastern forests of this spectacular World Heritage-listed landscape. On a clear day you can see all the way to Wollumbin-Mount Warning.
