Cottan-Bimbang National Park

Highlights:
This park crosses the Oxley Highway south of Werrikimbe National Park and was formerly state forest. 'Cottan-bimbang' is the local Aboriginal word for the walking stick palm, which grows in the park's warm temperate rainforests.

 

Activities:
Myrtle Scrub Road in the west of the park provides a scenic drive and an introduction to the extensive tracts of tall old-growth wet eucalypt forest and rainforest. There's a picnic area on the Oxley Highway and a cleared area for picnics next to Cells River on Myrtle Scrub Road. Limited accommodation, fuel and food is available just outside the park at Gingers Creek.

 

Access:
65 kilometres east of Walcha along the Oxley Highway. Myrtle Scrub Road is a 15-kilometre circuit that connects with the Oxley Highway.
