Bushwalking in the rainforest, New England National Park, New South Wales

New England National Park, Australia's second oldest national park, is located on the Northern Tablelands in the New England region of New South Wales, 560 km north of Sydney.
Located on the precipitous escarpment on the east of the undulating Northern Tablelands plateau, the wilderness consists of impressive cliffs, rugged ridges, spurs and streams.
Public access to the park focuses on the Point Lookout area (1,563 m above sea level), from where on a clear day one can see the Pacific Ocean. This lookout is the second tallest mountain in the region and one of the highest places north of the Snowy Mountains.
