So many hiking trails, stunning campground, rich in history
okt 2020.
Gibraltar Range is a national park in north-eastern New South Wales, Australia, 79 kilometres north-east of Glen Innes and 493 kilometres north of Sydney.
Gibraltar Range National Park treats you to magnificent walks, lookouts, and picnic spots in World Heritage-listed gondwana rainforest. Relax at a cottage or campground, spot wildlife, discover history, or tackle a multi-day hiking adventure.

If travelling via the Pacific Highway, turn west onto the Gwydir Highway in Grafton and follow the signs to Glen Innes. You will cross the Mann River at Jackadgery; follow it for a while before climbing up the escarpment to the tablelands

We travelled this way, see our trip details for video links or Orange flair on you tube up the Gwydir Highway and hiked down Murrumbooee Cascades ( a steep decline to a river junction, hard walk back) but a lovely hike.
The campground at Mulligans is lovely and well worth travelling to and provide great access to many walking trails.

Isolated and beautiful
okt 2020.
Most just see the ranges from the road from Grafton to Glen Innis. However it is a huge park and has many trails, especially if you are a walker and prepared to overnight on the longer ones. A great variety of vegetation, great bird life.

Raspberry lookout is a must
apr 2019. • Prijatelji
If you are travelling on the road between Grafton and Glenn Innes then make sure you stop at this lookout. It is one of the best views you'll ever see. Just look for the signs to Raspberry Lookout about 60km short from Glenn Innes. Breathtaking!

Camping and hiking at GRNP
jan 2019.
Stayed at Mulligans Campground, 2 nights
Does not require advanced reservation, pay when you check-in
No information center on the Gwyder highway turn off point
Good base for day hikes in GRNP
Clean toilets and showers (cold)
Firewood provide
Water taps handy at each camp/parking site
Other campers very quiet and considerate.
BUT
Congested, campsites very close together, no true feeling of being in the bush
Mostly campervans, few tent campers
Need to provide a separate (walk in) area for tent campers
Trails are mostly ex-logging roads meaning they are wide but not graded (as in a gradual elevation grade)
Basic interpretation signage at check-in but no signage once on any trail, very disappointing.

Lovely area to drive through, with a wide range of flora and landscape. Freezing in the winter and at its best at other times of the year.

The road from Glen Innes to Grafton through the Gibraltar Range National Park is as good as it gets anywhere.

Twisty bends with some stunning vistas, it's a great ride or Sunday drive

Lovely park and campground
maj 2018. • Parovi
It was the last two days of school holidays, so probably not the best time to camp (at Mulligans), especially as the sites are not particularly well separated and we value our privacy. In the event it worked out well, thanks to excellent neighbours on either side. At a less busy time the forest in and around the campground, with a short walk to Little Dandahra Creek, would be an even lovelier setting. The free firewood (sawmill offcuts) were greatly appreciated, but you need to be able to split some for kindling. In a short stay you wouldn't need to get into your car after arriving, with good walking in various directions (though we did use a rainy spell to drive to the nearby impressive Raspberry Lookout). We haven't yet worked out the rationale NSW NPWS uses for determining which parks charge an entrance fee (ie in addition to camp fees); eg Gibraltar Range, which has minimal other facilities, does, while Dorrigo, with magnificent infrastructure, does not. Ah well, some things are not for normal people to understand! And the park's experience is worth the $8 a day.

Quick look at falls possible.
jan 2018. • Prijatelji
On a wet drive through to Glen Innes I wanted to check out various sites within the Gibraltar Ranges. The drive to Boundary Falls was unsealed but OK and has a one way section to allow for safer travel. The drive into the Falls and camping area was short and a limited view of the falls is possible from the top parking area. With only a half downhill walk ( on many steps though with railing) you can access a better view of the falls but I haven't gone to the bottom. On a wet January day there were still interesting wild flowers, plants and bird life to see. There were toilets and an info board. One point to note when you exit this falls road back onto the highway.......we accidentally went the wrong way as there wasn't any sign to tell you the way to Grafton or Glen Innes but quickly realised our mistake when I saw the sign to Raspberry Hill lookout that I hadn't gone into.

We also stopped briefly in the rain at the roadside platypus camping and picnic area and this appeared well serviced with toilets and seating. A short flat walk can take you to a lovely Creek with ferns and wildflowers although we didn't see any platypuses.

You must turn off to the lookout as it is worth it. Amazing!!!!! Only 1 km off the main road. The view goes for miles.

Raspberry Lookout
apr 2017.
We visited Raspberry Lookout recently for the first time on the way from Glen Innes to Grafton. It is a little off the main road but worth the trip. An excellent view over the valley below.
