Old Bottlebutt

Come discover the real 'Magic Faraway Tree'! On a kid-friendly 20-minute loop walk through the forest, 'Old Bottlebutt' is a grand and ancient Red Bloodwood (Corymbia gummifera) tree located in Burrawan State Forest. The largest recorded example of its kind, Old Bottlebutt is unique in shape, its large flared 'butt' having a massive girth of more than 16 metres just above its base. At over 200 years old, Old Bottlebutt is a towering and unique attraction.

Old Bottlebutt is the main feature on a beautiful 600 metre loop walking track, beginning and ending at the Burrawan picnic area. Old Bottlebutt is a special place, a place to stay and enjoy the sounds of nature.

Old Bottlebutt is located near Port Macquarie and Wauchope on the NSW mid-north coast. From Wauchope travel south on the Bago Road 10 kilometres, then turn left onto Internal Break Road and follow the signs. It is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week including public holidays.
