For something secluded but still packed with points of interest, Finchley campground is a good bet for self-sufficient travellers. Offering four basic sites, wood barbecues, and non-flush toilets, there are almost never any crowds here – unless you count the native birds and resident goannas.

A short walk from the campground is the special Finchley Aboriginal Area, created in 1976 to protect one of the largest and most accessible engraving sites in the region. A spectacular lookout is right nearby as well: Finchley Trig, framing Mount Yengo in the distance. Don’t forget the camera.

One of the campground’s best offerings is not apparent until nightfall though, when the lack of light pollution leaves the sky open to an unparalleled vista of the stars. Bring a telescope if you happen to have one, or simply lay back on a blanket during warm spring nights, appreciating the view.
