Forest Tops campground is fairly secluded and a great spot to pitch your tent for the weekend if you’re travelling light.

At Forest Tops, you’ll be completely immersed in World Heritage-listed rainforest. It’s a good idea to arrive when it is still light and, once you’ve set up camp, start on a hot cuppa. While you’re waiting for your billy to boil, work out tomorrow’s adventure. Try a short trip along Booyong walking track or walk the entire track – it finishes at Sheepstation Creek campground.

You’ll have all the barbecue facilities you need to cook up a rainforest feast. After a tasty meal, you can relax under the starry night sky and look forward to another day of exploring Border Ranges National Park.
