Get driving directions

Get directions

    Kingfisher Pool campground is located in the middle of Heathcote National Park, north-west of Waterfall train station. The campground itself is positioned about 50m above the tranquil Kingfisher Pool.

    To get to there:

    • Take the Pacific Highway to Waterfall
    • Take the Kooraban Street exit ramp to Waterfall
    • Turn right onto Kooraban Street, Waterfall.
    • After the ramp, turn right onto Warabin Street, Waterfall.
    • Park at the end of Warrabin Street and walk into the park via the signposted Bullawarring track—it’s about a 1.5km/1hour walk (one-way) to get to the campground.

    As it's quite a long walk from the park’s entrance to the campground, it's a good idea to bring a Heathcote National Park topographic map.
