Carrai National Park
Highlights: Carrai National Park conserves parts of the Carrai plateau, a huge granite area surrounded by steep escarpments that drop to Kunderang Brook and the Macleay River.
Activities: This park provides 4WD access to the scenic Mary's View lookout on the eastern side of Oxley Wild Rivers National Park. Experienced bushwalkers can enjoy areas with great views across the Macleay River valley and explore large areas of tall eucalypt forest and rainforest.
Access: 90 kilometres west of Kempsey on the remote, unpaved Carrai and Coachwood roads via Kookaburra (4WD essential).
Accommodation in the park - Daisy Plains Huts - Basic accommodation is available at Daisy Plains Huts. This complex of 4 huts provides basic shelter in a five room bunkhouse without beds, a kitchen hut with open fireplace (firewood not provided), a pit toilet and rainwater (boil before drinking).
Accommodation fees: There are no fees for the huts - they are left open for the public to use on a first come first served basis (but there is nothing in them apart from a few tables)
