Saturday 25 November

Murray Scrub walk in the Toonumbar National Park, west of Kyogle

Leader: Peter Moyle: 0412 656 498

Many years since we have come here.  From the trip report in 2017. “The Murray Scrub; a most unmeaning name for a magnificent remnant of subtropical Gondwana rainforest, was our featured walk.  Containing the largest stand of Red Cedars in NSW, Teak, Booyong, Water Gums, Rosewood and Bangalow Palms, Under the cool canopy of these massive trees is an enchanting world of lush green foliage, a fragrant and soft forest floor and shafts of sunshine highlighting some of our extraordinarily precious heritage”.  This is a Saturday walk starting at 9.00am from the Iron Pot Creek campground nearby.  Not a long walk but to take in the beauty of this spot a slow meander of 3hours. After lunch an informative shorter walk of 1 hour again through a magic forest.

Addendum: As this is 35minutes west of Kyogle a bit of a drive for some. The Iron Pot Creek campground is my favorite inland camp. I will be camping Friday and Saturday night. A relaxing stay with a busy Saturday at less than $13 for two great value. Book you own site at.
