Besides the main national parks north of Tenterfield, Basket Swamp is a great alternative with a stunning waterfall and nice lookouts. The tracks can be accessed with a normal car, however good clearance is required and the weather should be dry. It is a great...More

Besides visiting the main attractions in this area, this year we decided to visit Basket Swamp National Park. For the drive to the park, I recommend a vehicle with enough clearance. Our small vehicle did not like the tracks too much and we had to...More
