Basket Swamp National Park
Basket Swamp has reopened following bushfires. Please take care when in the park as some signage has been damaged and walking paths may not be as easily defined.
Basket Swamp National Park is a woodland park without facilities that suits self-reliant bushwalkers. Bush camping facilities are provided in this waterlogged park. It includes Timbarra Lookout and gives access to nearby Basket Swamp Falls and the Woollool Woolloolni Aboriginal Place. Boonoo State Forest, which has a picnic and camping area with tables and toilet, is directly north.
Basket Swamp is an important wetland of heaths and sedges. It cleans, stores and slowly releases water throughout the year into local creeks that run into the coastal Clarence River system.
Basket Swamp is located 14 kilometres north-east of Tenterfield off the Mount Lindesay Road (partly unpaved), and is recommended for 4WD access.
