Natural Attractions

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.

Unroll the picnic blanket in the shade of the majestic eucalypts and, if you’re tempted, enjoy a refreshing dip. After a leisurely lunch, launch the kayak at the nearby ramp and paddle down the tranquil Wallingat River for some wildlife spotting along the tranquil waterways.
