A significant place for both the Dunghutti and Gumbaynggirr nations, Yarriabini means ‘koala rolling’. With lush, subtropical rainforest, babbling creeks and a vibrant array of native wildlife, Yarriabini National Park is only a short drive north from Kempsey, and provides an easy day trip for the whole family.
Don’t miss the lookout on the top of Mount Yarrahappini where you can see the entire Macleay Valley. When you’ve taken in the amazing view, enjoy a scenic drive or a lovely walk through Yarrahapinni’s dense, old growth forests filled with flooded gums and hoop pines.
Make sure you pack a picnic and make a stop at The Pines picnic area where you’ll be surrounded by dense rainforest. While you’re there, take some time to admire the Aboriginal artwork and learn about the significance of this area to the local Aboriginal people.
