This is unspoiled country, the eastern and southern slopes of the Barrington Tops plateau lead down from lush and pristine forests through rolling farmland to towns that retain the charm of yesteryear.

Barrington Tops provides habitat for many different plants and animals with more than fifty being listed as rare or threatened.

Barrington Tops can be appreciated by all visitors for their diversity and wilderness experience. The mood of the forest environment changes markedly from dawn through midday to dusk, from summer heat to winter mist and chill, through dry periods and rain and even a dusting of snow on the high country.

Through the forest there are tracks for hiking, mountain biking, horse riding and four wheel driving.
