Gap Creek campground is perfect for families and adventure travellers alike.
The natural setting is outstanding, with colourful plant life, like red cedars and blue gums, coupled with amazing birdlife like lyrebirds as your backdrop. It’s impossible not to feel relaxed here, particularly in late summer when the rainforest is cool and quiet.
For something truly spectacular, the Gap Creek walking track can be traced to the impressive Gap Creek waterfall, cascading more than 40m after heavy rains – so don’t forget your camera. Afterwards, head back to the campground for a barbecue and maybe a game of cricket. The trees provide plenty of shade for that afternoon nap to wind down after an adventurous day.
Alternative camping spots can be found at Bangalow campground, an easy 1km down the road.
