Dooragan National Park

Dooragan National Park near Port Macquarie features excellent trails and walks suiting all levels of fitness, possibilities for picnics, and even hang gliding. The scenic views from iconic North Brother summit are breathtaking.

Dooragan National Park is the perfect place to relax and unwind, while enjoying the view over a casual picnic and watching the passing parade of wildlife. Located west of Laurieton - a pretty coastal village - the views from North Brother's summit are exceptional, stretching far over Queens Lake and North Haven. Easy accessibility makes it a fantastic destination to bring guests and visitors to the region.

Several of the park’s walks, including Laurieton track, take you through spectacular blackbutt forests which mingle with enormous old stumps, reflecting the old days of timber harvesting in the park. The trails are buzzing with the sounds of the park’s wildlife residents and, in summer, the echo of cicadas can almost be overpowering.

Dooragan National Park is so diverse, it’s not unusual to see colourful hang-gliders launching from the popular North Brother summit, or even wedding parties posing for photos on their big day.
