"This spacious and tranquil campground is a perfect place to unwind. The kids explored the creek and roamed about on pushbikes while we relaxed."

A sunny, well-grassed clearing at Peacock Creek makes this campground an ideal spot for camper trailers, caravans or larger tents.

Especially popular with families and tourists in spring, the warmer weather brings with it an abundance of wildlife to the area, seeking shelter from the heat through the creek’s cool flow. There’s also plenty of birdlife - smaller fairy-wrens and larger green catbirds and grey shrike thrushes all swoop and dive among the looming Sydney blue gums and native vines throughout the year. Well-maintained facilities and picnic spots all ensure a convenient and comfortable base for your fun activities.

Enjoy a relaxing picnic, then explore via a scenic drive on 32km of comfortable road along Cambridge Plateau scenic drive. Locals who prefer to go horse riding can do so north of the campground on park management trails in the Bungdoozle area.
