Gordon Park Rainforest Walk
The Nature Walks of Nambucca Heads meander through a regenerating remnant rainforest and are uniquely located in the midst of the residential area.
While walking along, listen for the whip-bird and the cat-bird, look for the changes in the vegetation from the eucalypts and brush box on the drier ridges to the increasing number of rainforest species as you move down the slopes to the wetter and more protected areas, finally reaching the melaleucas, figs and callistemons in the swampy parts. Be sure not to miss the Pioneers' Well.
If you're interested in rainforest walks we would strongly recommend
that you acquire a copy of the marvellous field guide "Rainforest
Trees and Shrubs" by local botanist Gwen Harden and co-authors.
