Looking for a campsite or a place to picnic that’s set among beautiful scenery and provides a place of solitude away from the crowds? Then get off the beaten track and surround yourself with World Heritage-listed Gondwana rainforest at Plateau Beech campground.

Find a spot to pitch your tent anywhere in soft grassy patches dotted with wildflowers. Sit back, relax and enjoy the peacefulness of this secluded campground.

Take an easy 2km walk along King Fern walking track to see King Fern Falls and Filmy Ferns Cascades. This classic walk ventures into a deep, rainforest-clad mountain gully and is a great introduction to the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia. Marvel at the giant Antarctic beech and ancient coachwood trees.

The rainforest provides lots of opportunities for birdwatching. You’re likely to see log-runners, warblers and yellow robins. Listen out for the powerful and melodious whistling ‘eeoow-chewww-cho-cho’ call of the olive whistler.
