This national park is located east of the township of Crows Nest. There is picnic as well as camping areas provided. The campsites are unpowered but showers, toilets, barbecues and tables are provided. Advance bookings are recommended for holidays and long weekends.
The vegetation of the park consists mostly of open eucalypt forest which is simply a haven for native animals. We enjoyed the company of a rock wallaby as well as the melodious birdsong as we made our way to Koonin lookout. Animals to look out for at night are Gliders and Brushtail Possums.
The best way to explore the park is on foot. The tracks are well maintained and an easy walk with lots of opportunity for a rest along the way. The first stop on our journey was the Cascades. After admiring the rugged beauty we headed on to Crows Nest Falls. A bit further down the track you have the option to go down to the waterhole. This bit of the track is classed 4. Not too difficult terrain, but you do have to make your way across fallen rocks.
The last and longest bit of the track took us all the way up to Koonin lookout. It is truly a majestical sight gazing out across the valley of diamonds.
