Whether you’re looking for a scenic drive, or heading to the park for a weekend of camping and bushwalking, Mummel Forest Road offers a great opportunity for an enjoyable nature getaway.
Suitable for two wheel drive (dry weather only), it’s a scenic car touring or cycling route between Wauchope and Walcha that traverses 17 kilometres of the beautiful mountain forest for which Mummel Gulf National Park is so well-known. With beautiful forest vistas and places to picnic along the way, it makes a picturesque alternative to driving on the main roads.
Enjoy the cooler temperatures in the forest during summer, and in winter you’ll probably see snow alongside the road. You’re also likely to see wildlife like swamp wallabies, red-necked wallabies and wombats along the roadside, especially at dusk and early morning. You might even catch a glimpse of a lyrebird as they dart back into the forest.
