Bar Mountain Picnic Area

Natural Attractions

Bar Mountain picnic area in Border Ranges National Park offers incredible scenic views, as well as birdwatching and bushwalking in the area.

At 1140 metres, Bar Mountain picnic area stands at about the same elevation as the summit of Wollumbin-Mount Warning, making it the highest accessible area of Border Ranges National Park and the best place to admire the park’s stands of ancient Antarctic beech trees.

The picnic area is just next to Tweed Range scenic drive, a two-wheel-drive, all-weather, gravel car touring road, and makes for a perfect pit stop for a bite to eat.

It’s also a popular rest spot for keen bushwalkers, as three nearby walking tracks include Beech Glade, Falcorostrum loop walking track and Bar Mountain circuit.

Birdwatchers should keep their eyes open for interesting species here, including Albert’s lyrebird, regent bowerbirds, olive whistlers, marbled frogmouths and scarlet honeyeaters. Pademelons, brush turkeys and grey goshawks are often seen along Tweed Range Scenic Drive, too.
