NSW State forests are ready for you
Large groups wishing to use state forests should consult with their local Forestry Corporation office to discuss their needs and a suitable location.
A permit is required for commercial activities and most organised events in state forests - see Permits for activities in NSW state forests.
Forestry Corporation of NSW has partnered with a number of commercial operators to provide accommodation and adventure experiences in some State forests.
