It was an early departure this morning for Nightcap National Park and Protesters Falls. This area is accessed via Terania Creek Road and the Terania Creek Picnic Area. The walk is a 1.4km (30 minutes) return through what is a simply a special place.

I have to say that I’m very thankful to all those people who protested back in 1979 against logging in the Terania Creek area. This place is just too special to be so ridiculously wasted.

After Protesters Falls it was off to the Mt Nardi section of Nightcap National Park, found of Newton Road. This is a bitumen road all the way in – which is a nice change.

At Mt Nardi there are quite a few walks. This time round I did the Pholgi Gap Walk (3km return) and the Mt Matheson Loop Track (1.5km return) combined, which took about 1 3/4 hours to complete.

At the end of these walks I passed the spectacular Nimbin Rocks on the way back to Lismore and then on to Woolgoolga. Again I’m staying at Rosebourne Gardens Motel.
