Soothe those frazzled city nerves with a getaway to Ingar campground on Kings Tableland, near Wentworth Falls. The 9.5km Ingar trail leads to this picturesque campsite nestled amongst the scribbly gums.
This is a popular stop for walkers and mountain biker riders following the Wentworth Falls to Woodford trail, and is easily combined with Andersons trail. The nearby dam on Ingar Creek is perfect for swimming, paddling and liloing. If you’re lucky, there might be an eastern water dragon sunning itself on the creek bank.
After a barbecue dinner, get out the torch and look for the local nightlife. You might see sugar gliders, possums and bandicoots. Then it’s time to toast marshmallows over your campfire before settling, exhausted but happy, into your tent.
