Landscapes range from rugged sandstone escarpments and coastal ridges with dry open forests and heaths to subtropical rainforest gullies. These differing habitats provide refuge to a diversity of species including sooty and powerful owls, giant barred frogs and leaf-tailed geckoes. Lovely panoramic views over the Orara Valley can be enjoyed from the escarpment while the Woolgoolga Creek area in the southern section contains one of the few coastal subtropical rainforest remnants on the north coast of NSW.
Picnic or barbecue in picturesque Woolgoolga Creek picnic area and take an easy 3-km return walk to the waterfall through the rainforest along the creek. A scenic 4WD drive from Woolgoolga to Glenreagh along Gentle Annie Road offers the chance to experience a wide diversity of landscapes.
Access Woolgoolga Creek picnic area is 4 km west of Woolgoolga and is accessed via Woolgoolga Creek Road, a short 3-km drive from the Pacific Highway.
