Set among tall flooded gums and shady rainforest trees, beside a pristine creek running over basalt rock, Iron Pot Creek campground offers spacious sites coupled with well-maintained facilities.

It’s fantastic in summer as an alternative to busy coastal areas, especially since there are cool, crystal clear swimming holes. The creek is only a short stroll away through a forest of Bangalow palms and the buttressed roots of rainforest trees.

By day, red-necked pademelons, goannas, carpet pythons and a host of birdlife will be there to greet you when you wake to continue your adventure through this amazing place. By night, as you’re relaxing by the wood barbecues, nocturnal dwellers like frogs, possums and gliders will keep you company.

Beautiful trees and plants are everywhere and they change dramatically through the seasons, making it a wonderful place to visit all year round.
