Many visitors looking to camp overnight in Wallingat National Park will opt for Wallingat River campground, which offers basic facilities in a stunning setting of eucalyptus trees. A more adventurous and private option, though, can be found at Ferny Creek campground, on the western side of Wallingat River.
You need a 4WD to access this remote spot, or alternatively, you can paddle there from the boat ramp at Cockatoo picnic area. Kayaks can be launched into the creek, and it’s a great spot for birdwatching as you might see sea eagles and osprey circling overhead. Wallabies, kangaroos and echidnas wander through the campground. In the warmer months, you can cool down with a refreshing swim, then cosy up around the campfire.
The riverside setting along Ferny Creek is great for fishing, with scenic views across the waterways, giving you plenty of choice as you explore the deeper regions of the national park.
