I think you better take your wet weather gear, looks like good rainfall over the next few days.

Shepo,

There is many things to look at in that area but with the weather we are having here on the mid north coast at the moment, I am afraid it will limit what there is to look at.

In good weather there is the Cells areaand the Mummel Gulf NP but please do NOT try to access it if there has been any rain at all.

The Werrikimbi NP is pretty but limited access.

Take a trip to Gingers Creek (up the Oxley Hwy towards Walcha) and enjoy a cuppa then continue towards Walcha and have a look at Apsley Falls & Tia River. Return to Kangaroo Flat and travel to Mooraback camp area (in the Werrikimbi NP) then across the Racecoarse trail onto the top of the Hastings Forest Way, cross the headwaters of the Forbes River, then just before the old Camerons Corner Forestry hut area, turn right onto Cockawombeeba Rd and travel down to the Forbes River Rd, turn left onto Forbes River Rd at the end of Cocckowombeeba Rd and travel through Birdwood and back to the Oxley Hwy at Yarras and turn right back to Jaspers Peak Retreat (formally Mt Seaview Resort)

If you decide to do this drive, PLEASE use a map as there are many forestry roads leading off some of the roads mentioned and in bad weather it would be very easy to get stuck at the bottom of some very slippery roads.

The other choice is to travel up the Oxley Highway and turn left onto Knotingbull Rd and travel through to Elands and look at the Ellenborough Falls, then across to Comboyne (make sure you have a cuppa at the Udder Cow Cafe) and then return to the Oxley Hwy via Toms Creek Rd to the township of Ellenborough and then turn left and return to Jaspers Peak Retreat.

Have a good time and enjoy.

Cheers,

Cruiser

Very good advise Shepo, a few years back some mates and I ventured down to the "Cells Hilton" and were amazed by the amount of rain that can fall in that area. Spent two days sheltered at the "Hilton" with all 4 tyres clogged with clay and ended up with one of the mates walking to the "Oxly HWY" and seeking help from Mt Seaview resort. We were towed to safer ground and received some very useful local knowledge regarding the weather conditions of that area. Just very happy it all turned out good, and we have learnt by our $ expensive mistake.

Cheers: Phil
