Thanks to CARAVAN WORLD magazine ( issue 555 ) this month for the destination write up on Mulligans Hut, even those grey hair old bastards can access this one.

90 km west of Grafton on the NSW’s mid north coast, there is a hidden gem just waiting to be explored. The Gwydir Highway that links Grafton to the tablelands has only been there since the early 60’s, as before this road was put over the mountain the link was along The Old Glenn Innes road that runs below the range. At the very peak of the Great Dividing Range at 1100 metres above sea level lay 2 World Heritage National Parks on either side of the Highway. On the Northern side you will find Washpool National Park, very much rainforest based with pristine creeks with cool temperate areas. On the southern side you will find the Gibraltar National Park- generous camp sites, flushing toilets, bbq huts, fires are permitted and wood is available, cold showers with a little bit of history is thrown in.
