Starrs Creek picnic area

Natural Attractions

Starrs Creek picnic area is a terrific spot to settle down and enjoy the natural splendour of the rainforest, with light filtering through the canopy into a cool clearing. Bring a packed lunch and find a place to picnic right near the crystal clear perfection of the creek; picnic tables make this a convenient spot for families, though everybody will appreciate the quiet solitude of pristine nature.

It’s easy to while away an entire day relaxing in the shade here, reading a book or using binoculars for birdwatching (lyrebirds are common in the area). But Starrs Creek picnic area is also the access point to a beautiful elevated boardwalk, perfect for walking with children and fully wheelchair-accessible.

This easy 400m stroll threads through unusual palms and other subtropical species popular with the local animals, some of them threatened.
