Parks probably need to get in and trim around the picnic tables a bit and show the place a bit of love but we really enjoyed it.

Parque Nacional de Dorrigo Dorrigo 14.9 mi away
#1 of 7 Nature & Parks in Dorrigo
... rainforest, gorgeous views across mountains and coast and all packaged up in a number of easy and slightly longer walks (including some lovely picnic areas), would highly recommend the NP and Rainforest Centre.
Safely guided by a well kept pathway we spent a leisurely couple of hours with brush turkeys for company, birdwatching, stumbling on a variety of colourful fungi, flowing streams and photographic waterfalls.
