Woko National Park
Woko National Park is a steep, rugged landscape with important reserves of NSW forest land, perfect for exploring on a school excursion, and great for swimming, walking, river camping and free barbecues.
Woko is wild. A steep and rugged landscape with swathes of wet and dry rainforest, rocky outcroppings, and eucalypt groves. This is a national park for people looking to escape the frantic bustle of everyday life. Jump in the car for a road trip and bring hiking boots and swimmers.
There are several hiking tracks in Woko, perfect for walking with children, but river camping and barbecues make it just as attractive a place for settling down over a long weekend. Birdwatchers will also find much to celebrate here: the forest, escarpment and open grasslands are filled with beautiful species like the wedge-tailed eagle and lyrebird. There are numerous animal species, too, including several threatened ones, like the brush-tailed rock wallaby.
Woko’s rugged terrain can be difficult given its steepness. But clearing for cattle grazing, prior to the park’s protection, means main access points are open and accessible, particularly around Manning River.
