|Nymboi-Binderay Tour - 6 to 8 hours.
A tour steeped in history where we will relive the past with several stops that include an old case mill, tramway walk, logging camp and more.
Fuel and Supplies
As we wind our way up the mountain passing stands of gums and tall tree ferns that line the road it is possible to hear the call of the ever present whip birds. We will stroll through an old mill where massive boilers and steam equipment lay where they onced were worked.
Further on we pass through plantations, old growth forests and pockets of protected rainforest. We will explore an old logging camp where there was an unusual way of collecting the timber after it fell. This 800 metre walk takes us along the old tramway past the loggers camp, winch platform and loading docks.
Our lunch destination is beside the Nymbodia River. Look for the resident goannas, maybe search the banks for the elusive Platypus or just kick back on the grassy banks. Leaving here we will head back up the ridge towards Dorrigo where we will divert to to a local memorial grove. Here there are several remarkable old-growth trees with trunks of two metres in diameter and soaring to some 60 metres high.
Take an 800m stroll along Coachwood Track and get up close and personal with the 800 year old giants. Visit a huge waterfall where a continuous supply of mountain water thunders down below as it begins its journey to the coast at Yamba. Time permitting we will drop by several lookouts where you can see just how rugged our hinterland is.
Bring along walking shoes, swimmers in the summer months, sweaters in the winter, hat, camera and a sense of adventure. This is a big day out.
