You'll find diverse landscapes and wildlife among the lush rainforest of Richmond Range National Park. Stretch your legs on a walk through the ancient rainforest, part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia world Heritage Area. Or take in panoramic views across the Richmond River valley from a lookout.
The well-maintained Cambridge Plateau 4WD route is a great way to explore. It snakes along the crest of Richmond Range, enjoying striking views between Mallanganee in the south and Mount Brown to the north.
The park provides a sanctuary for many animals and birds that live among the rich plant life. Keep an eye out for gobbling brush turkeys, non-venomous carpet pythons, and rose-crowned fruit-doves. At night, rare little bent-winged bats come out to feed on small insects that fly beneath the rainforest canopy.
A great day trip from Casino or Kyogle, explore the subtropical bush, relax at scenic picnic and campgrounds, or even horse ride using the park management trails.
