Pack a picnic, pull up your caravan or pitch a tent and enjoy the peaceful surroundings offered by this remote bush campground and picnic area.

Wander down to the creek and try your luck fossicking for topaz, beryl or quartz. Or just sit back and enjoy the sounds of running waters as you watch out for the local birdlife with your camera ready. Is that a Turquoise Parrot nesting in trees in the distance?

If you’re feeling energetic and ready to explore, why not go for a short and easy walk to see the stunning wildflower displays along the Ugly Corner Falls walking track.

When you’re done exploring, head back to your campsite, get a fire going for a hot chocolate and barbecue dinner. Then let the night sounds of the bush rock you to sleep before another day of adventure begins.
