Visitor areas in the State Forests of the Lower Barrington Tops can be found in Chichester State Forest. Chichester is divided into two distinct areas, the western side centred on the Allyn River and the eastern side centred on the Telegherry River.
Access to visitor sites along Telegherry River is via Chichester Dam Road from Dungog. Visitors can turn right into Wangat Road to travel into the forest.
Forests in this area have been harvested many times over for timber, for many decades – some for over 150 years - meaning the forests you see today are regrowth forests. Our forests are valuable resources for timber, biodiversity and visitor enjoyment, and so we ask all visitors to please look after these areas - take only photographs and leave only footprints.
