Cedar Park Picnic Area

Cedar Park picnic area offers an ideal base for exploring Ngambaa Nature Reserve, with picnic facilities and a walking track close to Kempsey.

Cedar Park picnic area sits on the banks of Stockyard Creek, and takes its name from a stand of red cedars which provide shade and the tranquil setting for a long picnic or lunch. Particularly in summer, when temperatures soar, this quiet picnic area serves as an ideal respite in the heart of the reserve, with cool running water to bathe the feet in and an orchestra of native birds.

Bring a packed lunch to take advantage of wood barbecues and picnic tables in two open areas. An information display explains the history and significance of Ngambaa, and a trailhead leads onto an easy walking track through surrounding forest, with plenty of places to settle down and enjoy a picnic.

Cedar Park picnic area is mostly visited by people from the local area, so you’re likely to have a great deal of privacy and space. It also acts as a great base to get your bearings before delving deeper into Ngambaa Nature Reserve.
