Situated right on the doorstep of iconic Gibraltar Range and Washpool World Heritage Area, Dandahra picnic area is a perfect pit stop on a driving tour of NSW North Coast. Located halfway between Glen Innes and Grafton, right next to Gwydir Highway, it’s also a convenient spot for nature-lovers and bushwalkers keen to explore the lush rainforests protected in this region. Unpack a picnic at the picnic tables, or spark up a barbecue and enjoy a leisurely lunch in this scenic bushland setting. There’s lovely scenic views and interesting local native wildlife to watch while you eat. If you’re keen to step out, try Little Dandahra Creek walking track. If you like birdwatching, keep an eye out for the glossy black cockatoos that call this area home. You might even hear the call of the endangered giant barred frog.
