Brushy Mountain campground is a perfect place to get away from it all and unwind. Set amid tall ribbon gum and blackbutt forest, you’ll find plenty of grassy patches to set up camp or picnic under the trees.

It makes an ideal base to explore the nearby walking tracks. Discover ancient Gondwana rainforests and eucalypt forests on the easy Brushy Mountain loop walk, or spend a few hours and head to Spokes lookout for spectacular views on a 9km loop trail.

If you’d prefer, why not relax, sit back and absorb the peaceful ambience? While in the zone, listen and look out for the inquisitive, though rare, spotted-tailed quoll and the range of birdlife. You might not see it, but you’re also likely to hear the shy and rare rufous scrub-bird, with the males' distinctive ‘chip-chip-chip’ call.

At night, get cosy by the campfire and keep your torch handy to spot large greater gliders feeding in the nearby branches.
