At this remote, yet welcoming campground, you can camp among the tall forest or at grassy campsites nestled next to the quaint Chaelundi Creek, which is also a lovely spot to swim and paddle when the weather is hot.

The campground is popular with families and 4WD tourers and there’s lots of open space in the campground where kids can play games. It’s an ideal base camp for exploring the walking tracks into the Guy Fawkes River and along the escarpment.

Once you set up camp, head off to the Escarpment walk to view the spectacular Chaelundi Falls and Lucifers Thumb lookouts, with remarkable 180-degree views out over the park and Guy Fawkes River.

Red-neck wallabies frequent the campground and threatened brush-tailed rock wallabies can often be seen sunning themselves on the cliffs nearby. The creek is also home to the endangered New England tree frog.
