Heartbreak Hill campground is a great camping spot on Womerah Range trail and an especially good halfway mark for hikers doing the walk over 2 days. From the park’s main entrance off Webbs Creek Road, it’s a tough but rewarding ride for most mountain bikers and cyclists.

Set up camp in this remote site and keep an eye out for gliders and possums in the eucalypts as the sun sets. During the day, lyrebirds can often be spotted loitering around the bracken fern near your campsite. It’s also not unusual to be woken by a chorus of kookaburras.

When the wildflowers are out during spring, try identifying some of those growing around your campsite. There’s the mountain devil (red, of course), the pale pink flowers of eriostemon, the soft white-petal flannel flower and grey spider flower, which is a type of grevillia.
