Mike is going bush, a 30-minute drive from Coonabarabran, he heads on a cultural tour into the amazing Pilliga Forest and stays at the environmentally friendly Barakala Farmstay, home of the unique Pilliga Pottery- and eats at the Blue Wren Bush Café.

Mike finds out about how the Sculptures in the Scrub were a collaboration between the NPWS and local Aboriginal community which brought together elders and young Aboriginal people with sculptors to produce 5 incredible sculptures in the beautiful setting of Dandry Gorge in Timmallallie National Park and much more!

Sandstone Caves, The Pilliga Forest Lookout Tower, and Sculptures in the Scrub are all attractions that have been developed by NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service to aid in the appreciation of the Pilliga. For further information contact the Pilliga Forest Discovery Centre.
