Jerusalem Creek Picnic Area

This remote picnic spot, in the most southerly entrance to Barrington Tops National Park, near Dungog, is a great escape from the modern world. Jerusalem Creek picnic area offers a rare opportunity to experience the splendour of subtropical rainforest, in this World Heritage-listed park.

Work up an appetite with a walk along Jerusalem Creek trail, passing waterfalls and creeks before heading back for a leisurely lunch among the blue gums and turpentine. The picnic spot is great for birdwatching, so take your binoculars.

This protected wilderness provides habitat for a wide range of plants and animals, including more than 50 rare or threatened species, however you’re more likely to see satin bower birds, wompoo fruit-doves, king parrots, glossy black cockatoos, and lyrebirds.
