Cathedral Rock National Park

Amid the eucalyptus forest and photographic granite outcrops, there are some terrific bushwalks and camping options at this park, around 1½-hours winding drive west of Bellingen, along the Waterfall Way. The challenging Cathedral Rock walking track starts from the Barokee campground and will have you scrambling over boulders to take in sweeping scenic views from the summit on a 6km loop.
