    Visiting tips
    Other than picnicking, this can be viewed as an outdoor experience, so they suggest you bring a change of familiar shoes, jumper and disposable raincoat (they also sell raincoats). The forest walk is ecologically sustainable with outdoor foot access only (no wheel or motor access).

    Ranger Bird Feeding
    Wallabies/Wallaroos

    Covered Picnic Area
    Gas Token BBQs
    Light Refreshments
    Function Centre
    Education Centre

Ourimbah Nightlife

  • by Cam06 Written Apr 7, 2006

    The only place to be on a thursday night in Ourimbah. Basically just a poker night with about 100 people playing to start. Some cash prizes at the end, and a nice looking plaque. Cheap beers as well!

    Dress Code: No thongs, footy shorts or singlets.
