For a remote wilderness adventure deep in the heart of Nymboi-Binderay National Park on the Dorrigo plateau, head for Cod Hole campground and picnic area. This rustic camping spot offers the chance to really get away from it all, in magnificent wild river country, surrounded by lush forests.

Settle in to your campsite before heading to the river for a range of water-based activities. Swim in the calm waterholes or explore the tree-lined riverbanks by canoe. Rafting is a great way to explore and there’s a range of guided tours on offer.

Nymboi-Binderay is the Aboriginal name for ‘The mighty river’, and the local Gumbaynggirr people would paddle these waters. Scarred trees, where canoes were carved from the trunks, are dotted throughout the park.

As night settles in, cook up a storm over the fire. If you’re curious to meet the neighbours, grab a torch for the chance to see sugar gliders, spotted quolls and bettongs.
