“We found Sheepstation Creek campground the perfect base for exploring the Border Ranges National Park.”

The popular Sheepstation Creek is an ideal spot to relax and recharge among World Heritage-listed rainforest.

There’s plenty of room to set up your campsite; so it’s the perfect choice if you’re travelling in a large group with kids who like lots of space to run around or on a driving tour with a caravan or motor home. Don’t forget to bring your own firewood so you can cook up a camp dinner and relax by the fire.

Be sure to walk one of the three tracks that leave from the campground – the easy Palm Forest walk is a great one for children while the Rosewood loop and the Booyong loop are longer day walks.
