Woko is a national park in New South Wales, Australia, 243 km north of Sydney.

The Woko National Park is characterized by a steep and ragged landscape. There are vast areas of rainforest, arid places with rocky outcroppings and groves of eucalyptus; the Manning River flows through the park and its riverside locations are used by picnickers and hikers.[1]

Wildlife[edit]

The Woko National Park is a habitat for several species of birds and animals; the forests, grasslands and rocky regions of the park are home to birds like the lyrebird and the wedge-tailed eagle. A number of threatened species of animals live here, including the brush-tailed rock-wallaby.[1]
