Nestled among the tall eucalypts, you’ll find this peaceful camping area by Coxs Creek. There’s plenty of space, so find yourself a grassy patch to pitch your tent or park your caravan. Once you’ve set up camp, it’s time to explore. Why not head off on your mountain bike or walk along Coxs Creek fire trail? If that doesn't grab you, try one of the many other trails in the park.

Wander over to nearby Coxs Creek Falls and find a quiet spot with your binoculars to take advantage of the great birdwatching opportunities. Look closely and you might see sulphur-crested cockatoos, red wattle birds, kookaburras, crimson rosellas or blue wrens. At night, get cosy in your sleeping bag and listen to the night sounds of the bush. Expect to hear owls calling in the distance.
