INTRODUCTION:

Mebbin National Park is a fairly new park being created in 1999. It protects an area of some 3 750 hectares on the boundary of the Border Ranges National Park. Part of this national park is also included in the World Heritage Area: Central Eastern Rainforests Reserves (Australia).

There are a diverse range of vegetation types in Mebbin National Park, including rainforest and areas of old growth forest. Many endangered species of animals and birds call Mebbin home, including the Tiger Quoll, Powerful Owl and Albert's Lyrebird.

The park is about 40 minutes south of Murwillumbah via the Kyogle Road and Byrill Creek Road. Turn off Byrill Creek Road into Mebbin Forest Road for the very good drive through Mebbin National Park. The road is considered a dry weather road only.

 

CAMPING:

The Mebbin Day Visitor and Camping Area provides toilets, BBQs, tables and water. Camping and Day Use fees apply in the national park.

 

WALKING:

Byrrill Creek Track:

The Byrrill Creek Track is an easy 450m return track to Byrrill Creek through subtropical rainforest. This is a very worthwhile walk to complete.

Giant Ironbark Track:

A drive down Lemon Tree Road (off Cadell Road) will lead to the Giant Ironbark Track. This track is a short walk to a 400 year old Ironbark. The road should only be used in dry weather and is recommended for 4WD only (in my experience).
