Strickland State Forest is a 10 minute drive from Gosford on the Central Coast of New South Wales. It has extensive walking tracks through varying forest types – past waterfalls, under cabbage tree palms and along creeks.
There are excellent facilities at Banksia Picnic Area, including picnic tables and wood burning pit-fires. A short walk from the picnic area is a large rock platform with views to Gosford and Brisbane Waters. This area is also the starting point for some of the walking tracks, which were built and are maintained by the Friends of Strickland (a volunteer group).
Gymea lilies, waratahs, rock orchids, ferns, banksias, and cabbage tree palms – as well as creeks, waterfalls and rainforests – can all be viewed along the walking tracks.
Our family have been gathering at the Banksia picnic area for more than 30 years, to celebrate special occasions, or just because we want to have a family get-together, light the fire, have a barbecue and go for a walk.
