Collect the key for the gate at the visitor centre and then you’ll be on your way to this peaceful back-to-basics campground. Find a campsite, then wander down to the nearby creek to explore.

After a day immersed in nature, sit back and savour the flavours of hot tucker around the campfire (fire bans may be in place). Step away from the warmth of the fire to enjoy stargazing and be mesmerised by the abundance of stars sprayed across the night sky. You might also hear the sounds of boobook owls in the trees and tawny frogmouths from the nearby creek.
