About Barrington Tops National Park

The rainforests of Barrington Tops National Park are of international significance; forming part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area. Carved out of ancient volcanic flows, the park rises from near sea level to over 1500m and protects one of the largest temperate rainforests in mainland Australia, along with a host of diverse habitats and wide range of birds and animals.

The park is a bushwalker's paradise, with an excellent walking track network that includes short and easy walks to more difficult overnight hikes, with plenty of sites to set up a bush camp for the evening.

For those visiting for the day, there are lots of picnic and barbecue areas to enjoy, cycling trails to be explored and views from the park's lookouts that need to be seen to be believed. Fishing is a popular activity in the park between October and May; you might catch a rainbow or brown trout.

Barrington Tops National Park is home to one of the largest temperate rainforests on mainland Australia, consisting mainly of well-developed Antarctic beech forests. The park is internationally recognised as part of the World Heritage listed Gondwana Rainforests of Australia.

Barrington Tops is a huge plateau separating the upper Hunter River and its tributaries from the Manning catchment. The main plateau reaches 1,500 m above sea level, with steep slopes on all sides. The park has fertile basalt soils as well as less fertile sandy granite soils.

Native plants

You'll find a range of plant communities within the park, from subtropical rainforests and tall open forests in the valley, through to the cool temperate rainforests and swamps, bogs and ferns of Barrington Tops. The park protects several threatened plants.

Native animals

Because it's so big, the park is home to countless animal species, over 40 of which are threatened. These include the broad-toothed rat, red-legged pademelon, rufous scrub bird, masked owl, powerful owl, yellow-bellied glider, spotted-tailed quoll and the koala. The animals you're likely to see include brush turkeys, lyrebirds, bowerbirds, red-necked pademelons, red-necked wallabies and wombats.
