Big Scrub Loop Walking Track

Overview

Big Scrub loop walking track offers the chance to experience some of the most magnificent subtropical rainforest in NSW. Part of Nightcap National Park, near Lismore, it’s a popular track for community and school groups, with excellent birdwatching opportunities, crystal clear creeks and lush vegetation.

From the shallow creek crossing, the track is clearly marked with orange markers so you’ll stay on-path. You’ll see enormous fig trees, giant stinging trees and yellow carabeen towering above, forming part of the rainforest canopy. Beneath the forest giants are lush bangalow palms, black bean and maidens blush, while jackwood and lawyer vine form the understorey.

There’s an abundance of birdlife all year round, including Albert’s lyrebirds, brush turkeys and rainforest pigeons.
