Dunns swamp, or Ganguddy as it is known to local Aboriginal people, is a beautiful, serene waterway on the Cudgegong river in Wollemi National Park. The waterway was created when Kandos weir was built in the late 1920s.

Set up camp amid picturesque woodlands of scribbly gum and striking pagoda rock formations and settle in for a truly tranquil getaway. Keen eyes may turn up wallabies, purple swamp hens and, at night, greater gliders. If you’re really lucky, you might glimpse shy long-necked turtles and platypus in the weir.

Ganguddy is perfect for a range of low-key recreational activities, from birdwatching and fishing to canoeing and swimming. You’ll also find a network of easy walks offering expansive views over the Cudgegong river, including Pagoda Lookout walking track.

This idyllic setting is great for car-based family camping so pack your tent or bring a small-caravan. With wood barbecues on-site you can hook dinner with your fishing line and and cook up a camping feast under the stars.
