Victoria Park boardwalk is a 0.4km, grade 2 Circuit hike located in the Victoria Park Nature Reserve, NSW. The hike should take approximately 30mins to complete.

Summary

Transport yourself to the lush world of sub-tropical rainforests on the short Victoria Park boardwalk. Discover the giant Morton Bay figs and towering black beans, remnants of the original Big Scrub that covered the Northern Rivers region. The path is suitable for prams and wheelchairs and accessible facilities at Victoria Park picnic area, means everyone can enjoy this idyllic spot.
As soon as you enter the shady green cool of the lush rainforest, dappled light filters through the dense canopy. The kids will love birdwatching for the vibrant wompoo fruit­dove and colourful pitta bird. If you hear a scurry in the leaf litter, it’s likely to be the shy red-legged pademelon.
On a series of informative displays, learn how the local Widjabul Aboriginal people, of the Bundjalung nation, used the plants of the rainforest. You’ll find out how the curved sheath of the bangalow palm was used to carry water, and the sap of the strangler fig to heal wounds.
