For a delightful in Gibraltar Range National Park that all the family will enjoy, follow Lyrebird Falls walking track through open forest to the edge of the steep-sided valley cut by Boundary Creek. The forest, dominated by tall eucalypts, is also home to grass trees, tree ferns and wattles. The scenic lookout at the end of the track offers views onto gorgeous little waterfalls and over Boundary Creek.
As the name suggests, lyrebirds inhabit the forest areas that this track passes through, so keep an eye out and the binoculars handy. Wedge-tailed eagles can also often be seen soaring above on the thermals.
The trailhead for Lyrebird Falls is at Boundary Falls picnic area, which is just off the highway. So, if you're passing on a road trip through northern NSW, take a break from the road, make a cuppa and stretch your legs along this track.
