Richmond Range National Park is accessed by travelling west from Casino on the Bruxner Highway towards the small village of Mallanganee. Before reaching the village and at the top of the Mallanganee Range a sign post will direct you the National Park. It may also be accessed in dry weather by travelling west from Kyogle to Toonumbar Dam and continuing on Iron Pot Creek Road and then continuing south onto the Cambridge Plateau Forest Drive. Please note that these roads are often impassable in wet weather so please check the National Parks website http://www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au/alerts for details of road and other closures.
This park is renowned for its gum species, extensive old-growth forest and the World Heritage-listed rainforest of the Cambridge Plateau. These internationally significant rainforests have an outstanding diversity of native plants and animals including many rare and threatened species. One local spotted gum, related to the more common form spotted gum of the New South Wales east coast, is found only in a small area on the range.
