Banksia Point picnic area

Natural Attractions

Banksia Point picnic area is a pleasant, grassy picnic area nestled in the forest. It’s conveniently located near a trackhead that leads to walking opportunities out along and below the escarpment edge. From here, you can head off on Lyrebird walking track. You could also take the one hour Banksia Point circuit and return via Tree Fern Valley.

This pretty picnic area is a popular place to enjoy a meal, for both bushwalkers and campers staying at the nearby cabin accommodation. There’s space to kick a ball around or toss a frisbee, and a sheltered picnic spot with an elevated woodfire barbecue.
