Wingham is a small heritage town 12km from Taree and 46km from Forster. The reserve is at the end of the main street making it a strange transition from built up area to rainforest. The boardwalk is fantastic, accessible and mainly level (small inclines only). It is approximately a 20 minute walk each way.
The boardwalk is well maintained and has wide access. The main walk, Flying Fox Circuit, is sometimes locked during important times of the flying fox breeding cycle, so check before you make the drive.
The trees are beautiful with their massive roots and vines creeping through. 1000’s of flying fox make their home in the tree tops making it interesting but also noisy. Brush turkeys can be seen busy making massive nests at the rainforest floor.
Picnic benches and disabled parking’s available.
There is a large disabled toilet facility (a 30 second drive away).
For more information check the National Park’s website.
Wear a hat! Sue’s husband paid the price for not wearing a hat when bats were flying overhead, much to the amusement of their kids!
Thanks to Sue, Heath and kids for providing the information and photos.
