The remoteness of Culgoa National Park makes it an attractive option for extended stays, and Culgoa River campground is the ideal resting place for well-equipped, independent travellers. Offering free camping a short walk from Culgoa River (which is often dry), this scenic spot doubles as a place to picnic, making it a perfect break from road touring or adventure hiking.
Spring and autumn are ideal times to settle down in tranquil silence surrounded by gidgee trees and vibrant red soil. Culgoa River campground is remote without being isolated, offering you the best of both worlds. Be sure to pack an ample supply of food and water, and then forget about everything and revel in the solitude, with parrots and waterbirds brushing through the cypress pines above and grey kangaroos foraging around the shrubs below.
Between birdwatching, fishing and relaxing, you might like to take advantage of the nearby day walks, with several easy tracks leading through the scenic pines or along the river bank. A good place to start is Mirri Mirri Yurun (River Bank walk).
