NIghtcap is one of those places we'd always wanted to visit, for its own sake and for its place in Australian environmental history. Obviously it didn't disappoint, with some superb rainforest walks from Rummery campground, and of course the incomparable Terania Creek section. From Rummery...More

Great amenities for a picnic/bbq. Walking track to Protester Falls in top condition. It's a short walk from car park to top of falls. Huge reward for very little effort. Note: keep an eye out for the numerous carpet pythons on access road in, especially...More

Take the drive to Minyon Falls on the eastern edge of Nightcap from Byron or Mullum. An hour or two of teetering on the edge of "off the GPS" roads (that 2WDs will still cope with) looking out for Nightcap Oaks and listening out for...More
