If you fancy a relaxing day being soothed by the gentle sounds of the river, pack up the canoes and make tracks to Cockatoo picnic area in Wallingat National Park, on NSW Mid North Coast. A great way to unwind, this remote riverside picnic area is ideal for nature-lovers and adventurous families who enjoy fishing, swimming and birdwatching.
