At Colo Meroo campground, you can pitch your tent on grassy flats just 100m from the beautiful Colo river. Pop your billy on the wood barbie and settle in for a magnificent night sky showing.
While the Colo is often described as a ‘wild’ river, this is more to do with it being a haven for an abundance of plants and animals. The tranquil waters and tributaries that flow through here are part of the most extensive sandstone canyon system in eastern Australia. This pristine catchment area, an important place for local Aboriginal custodians, is one of Wollemi National Park's highlights.
The facilities at this campground are basic, but the backdrop of striking sandstone cliffs and ambient river soundtrack make for a priceless experience.
