After a morning paddling the tranquil river, you'll be ready for a break at Black Oaks picnic area in the southern most tip of Myall Lakes National Park. On the western banks of Myall River, near Hawks Nest, this secluded spot makes a lovely picnic stop while exploring this natural wonderland by boat or canoe.

Park your vessel at the wharf and settle in at this idyllic riverside setting, surrounded by an old pine plantation. Unroll the picnic blanket in the shade and enjoy a hearty lunch while taking in the scenic river views from a more leisurely perspective.

This remote bush setting is good for spotting wildlife; keep an eye out for an eastern water dragon sunning itself on the river banks. If you're keen to explore this beautiful river further, paddle north to Engels Reach picnic area.
