Your campsite won’t be far from some of the park's walking and cycling tracks - make sure to take your bikes and walking shoes so you can explore. If you’re visiting in spring, you might be treated to the sight and smell of the wildflowers that line the tracks, like western golden wattle, smooth darling pea and kangaroo thorn.
