Get away from city life at the riverside Bummaroo Ford campground. This family-friendly camping spot is the only place in Abercrombie River National Park where you can bring your caravan or trailer.

Take a hike along the Abercrombie River, but take your swimmers with you – when the weather’s warm and the water levels are high, you’ll definitely want to take a dip. It’s also a great place for paddling if you’ve got a canoe or kayak.

During the spring, the beautiful golden wattles and red and yellow callistemons (bottlebrushes) along the river come into flower, bringing feeding birds with them. It’s certainly a time of new life around here – it’s also the season you’ll hear frogs singing by the water. All year round, you’re likely to see kangaroos and wallabies near the campsite. Sit quietly by the waterholes at dusk and you might also see a platypus.
