Chichester State Forest - Allyn River

Located in the foothills of the State Forests of the Barrington Tops, Chichester State Forest on the Allyn River offers some stunning forest locations to visit or stay.

Allyn River Forest Rest Area is a great day use area for swimming, bushwalking, relaxing or four-wheel-driving. Nearby Ladies Well offers a cool refreshing spot that's perfect for a dip in warmer weather.

Pademelon features large, secluded campsites divided by trees - great for large groups. White Rock camping area is further upstream - a large and flat area with toilets, this walk-in camping area is a delightful spot to relax or paddle in the crystal clear waters of the Allyn River.

Peach Tree is a small picnic spot on the opposite bank of the Allyn river. Here you'll find the start of the beautiful Allyn River Rainforest Walking Track, a short looped walking track (20 minutes) through rainforest. Take in majestic trees, huge buttress roots, hanging vines and mossy rocks whilst catching glimpses of the river. Take off your shoes and cool your feet in the waters of the Allyn before following this walk back to it's start at Peach tree carpark.

Access all these sites via Dungog or Gresford.
