If you like to answer the call of the wild with a night in the rugged wilderness, then head for the remote beauty of Gummi campground in Barrington Tops State Conservation Area. Roughly halfway between Scone and Gloucester, you’ll need a 4WD to get to this remote camping spot, high in the sub-alpine region.
Spend your days fishing in the crystal clear Manning River, or explore the high country trails on horseback or mountain bike. Wildlife is plentiful in this unspoilt region, so keep your eyes peeled for kangaroos, wombats, and the rare, elusive long-nosed potaroo.
After an evening meal around the campfire, try a little stargazing or get out the torch to try and catch a glimpse of greater gliders, spotted-tailed quoll, and the rare powerful owl.
Devils Hole campground offers picnicking, wildlife, scenic views, and fishing, in the plateau region of Barrington Tops State Conservation Area between Gloucester and Scone.
