Information

The ancient old-growth forests of this park cling to the edge of the Mummel Gulf, part of the Great Escarpment, which drops from 1450 metres down to 470 metres. The site of protests against continued logging in the early 1990s, the park protects the threatened spotted-tailed quoll, koala, yellow-bellied glider and sooty, powerful and masked owls.
There's a picnic area and car-based camping at New Country Swamp. A short walk from the campground offers breathtaking views from the edge of Mummel Gulf. Mummel Forest Drive is an easy introduction to the forests of Mummel Gulf National Park and nearby state forests.
Access 12 km south of the Oxley Highway, 50 km south-east of Walcha on the unsealed Enfield Road. The last 15 km of unsealed road is not recommended for caravans, and not recommended for 2WD vehicles in wet weather. Walcha, phone 6777 4700

April 2015. However it is just a dirt road through the forest and with care can be negotiated with a van. The walk is only 300m and the lookout is overgrown. Many wallabies darting across road near dusk.
