Nightcap National Park

Nightcap is a national park in New South Wales, Australia, 35 km north of Lismore. The park features a massif of peaks, ridges and gullies on the southern edge of the Mount Warning caldera. In places the range rises to more than 900 metres and is one of the state's wettest places.

The park has three main sections. Access to the Mount Nardi section, including Turntable Falls and the Pholis Walk to Pholis Gap, is via sealed road from Nimbin.

The park contains Old Googarna Road past Mount Neville, and the Historic Nightcap Track to Mullumbinmby. From Dunoon along Terania Creek Road vehicle access is provided to the Terania Creek Basin and Protesters Falls.

Protesters Falls was the site of one of the biggest conservation battles of the late 1970's.
