PACK some pyjamas for a walk in the park.
A quarter of a century since the Oxley Wild Rivers National Park made it onto the World Heritage List, the public are invited to see the trails less travelled.
The four-wheel drive tagalong tours in the Carrai Plateau will show nature lovers the after-dark world of Armidale's rainforest.
"The Gondwana Rainforests are an environmental treasure and protect the most extensive areas of subtropical rainforest in the world," National Parks and Wildlife Services local manager Aaron Simmon said.
"These tours will take visitors through a labyrinth of lush parks and rivers.
"People will also have the chance to spot an abundance of precious wildlife from wallabies and bandicoots to eastern water dragons, and eastern yellow robins and rufous fantails."
The tours take visitors through Oxley Wild Rivers, Werrikimbe, Willi Willi and Carrai National Parks, plus the Castles Nature Reserve with an overnight camp at historic Daisy Plains Huts.
See the remote Marys View and Hoppys Lookout with sweeping gorges and views over the New England high country.
We invite everyone to join this adventure which will be led by our rangers and give people a rare chance to learn about our ancient rainforests.Aaron Simmon
The Gondwana Rainforests include nearly all of Australia’s remaining Antarctic Beech cool temperate rainforest.
The ancient forests are relics of Australia’s place in the supercontinent Gondwana and are renowned for their important international and ecological value.
“We invite everyone to join this adventure which will be led by our rangers and give people a rare chance to learn about our ancient rainforests," Mr Simmon said.
The tagalong tours are on March 16 and 17, and November 2 and 3.

Forest-dwellers will need their own food, camping gear and four-wheel drive vehicle, bookings are essential and only six cars are permitted per tour.
Both tours leave from Armidale on a Saturday morning.
