WALKS & NATIONAL PARKS
THE WONDERFUL LANDSCAPE
EXPERIENCE THE WILD BEAUTY OF THE BYRON BAY HINTERLAND
Protestor Falls is up a 15 minute unsealed road at the back of the Channon, from the car park, it's a beautiful and easy walk along a board walk up to the base of the falls.
Protestor falls is one of the most beautiful falls in the area and well worth a visit, it's also part of the rich cultural history of the area, as the Terania and Mount Nardi protests resulted in the creation of Nightcap National Park, and hence the naming of the beautiful Protesters Falls within the park.
The protests changed the environmental and forest protection Australian landscape and preceded the famous Tasmanian Franklin River protests.
NIGHTCAP NATIONAL PARK
There's a number of different walks you can do or just look from the viewing platform from the top.
My favourate is to park at the car park near the entrance to the park and walk down to the valley floor and up to the base of the waterfall.
The walk is beautiful with a gorgeous mix of Bangalow palms and rainforest trees, it's fairly easy and would take about 45 minutes each way for an averagely fit person
Be the first in Australia to see the sunrise from the top of Mt Warning. The 8.8 km, five hour return walk through the rainforest, culminates in breathtaking 360 degree views around the ancient caldera with coastal views stretching from The Gold Coast to Byron Bay. Winding upwards from the Breakfast Creek parking area the Mount Warning summit track passes through a variety of vegetation Subtropical and temperate rainforest,. The climb ends with a challenging rock scramble before reaching the summit, however, please bear in mind,Wollumbin is a place of great spiritual significance to the Bundjalung People. Visitors are asked to respect their wishes and choose not to climb the summit track
BORDER RANGES NATIONAL PARK
