Burralow Creek campground and picnic area is nestled beside Burralow Creek, in the Hawkesbury precinct of Blue Mountains National Park. Set up camp on the grass, surrounded by native scribbly gums and a natural sandstone amphitheatre, all within a stone's throw from the wild Grose River valley.

This peaceful spot is a popular choice for families and groups of friends with 4WDs looking for a remote bush escape close to Sydney – and there’s plenty of space for the kids to roam free.

From your tent, take an easy bushwalk past a convict-dug pit, along the creek and through a small rainforest gully to Bulcamatta Falls. The nearby Burralow peat swamps provide habitat for the nationally endangered giant dragonfly in summer, and keen birdwatchers should keep an eye out for the rare glossy black cockatoo.

Cook up a barbecue feast for dinner and see if you can spot the nightlife, including swamp wallabies, sugar gliders, brushtail and ringtail possums, and several species of owl. Then settle in and watch the night sky fill with stars.
