Surrounded by ancient rainforests and eucalypt forests, Dingo Tops campground makes for a quiet, yet interesting, place to base yourself for explorations within Tapin Tops National Park.
Come here in spring, summer or autumn, when the weather is warm, and enjoy wandering through the rainforest along Mountain Brush circuit. Or, pack a picnic to enjoy at the picnic area and then head out along Potaroo Falls walk along the creek to the waterfall and its pretty swimming hole.
At and around the camp, you’re bound to spot interesting wildlife and birds, including parma wallabies, red-legged pademelons, greater gliders (at night), and koalas.
The campground is especially lovely in the spring, when violet pea flowers, large yellow guinea flowers and the Illawarra Flame tree, with its masses of red flowers, are all in bloom.
