Campsites at Barokee campground are tucked away amongst tall banksia and eucalyptus trees, giving a lovely sense of privacy. And because this is remote camping, you’re more than likely to have the place to yourself.
Located in the central section of Cathedral Rock National Park, the campground is the closest point to Cathedral Rock itself, so you can enjoy a trek along Cathedral Rock track or the longer Barokee to Native Dog Creek walk.
The swampy valley at the head of Snowy Creek near Barokee is home to a variety of plants and wildflowers. Many of these flower in spring while some, such as orchids, and the pretty purple flowered coast mint bush at different times of the year. At the high altitude, alpine shrubs such as the alpine fan flower, bottlebrush and epacris thrive here.
