Can anyone suggest a nice northern NSW state forests for bushwalking?
Looking for something within a few hours of Brisbane. There are loads of state forests to choose from in the north of the state, but I'm hoping someone can suggest one that's decent for bushwalking?

Thanks!

Take your PLB with you !!!

Last week two walkers had to be winched out - it would have been a six hour walk in if the weather hadn't cleared.

If they didn't have a PLB, it's anyones guess how long the search would have taken when they didn't come out on time.

Mike, one of those boys was the son of a work colleague from here in Cessnock, and it was only a last minute decision to tak a PLB.

Colin, we got the camp back together eventually, and decided to only leave basic equipment up there, however eldest son went up after New Year, to find some maggots had caused further damage to the vans. Nothing stolen, just vansallism. Now the boarded up windows look the shops in Brewarrina.

It's there if you ever want to use it fellas.

Hi Fishboy,

Have a look at Gibraltar Range N Pk, access from the Highway between Grafton and Glen Innes, lovely walks and also camping areas to stay. Check it out on the NPWS website.

Oxley Wild Rivers also has good walks and camping areas.

We have stayed and walked in both N Pks and enjoyed them very much

regards,

Heather G

Thanks for the responses all. I am specifically after State Forests that are suitable for bushwalking though, as opposed to National Parks. Any suggestions?
