With its superb location, Kings Plains Creek campground is a hit with adventurous, independent holidaymakers. The family will love spotting grey kangaroos, who tend to appear near the end of the day. Turquoise parrots and tiny diamond firetail finches are also often seen near the campground. As night falls, you’ll hear frogs singing and can even sit quietly on the banks and watch the microbats hunting above the water.

Once you’ve settled in, strap on hiking boots for a walk along the creek to Kings Plains Falls, which only runs after rain. The trail is unmarked and there are areas where rock-hopping is necessary, but this is bushwalking at its best. It takes about 2.5 hours to get to the waterfall and back.

Getting to the campground is easy from Glen Innes or Inverell, but you do need to carry gear along a walking track from the carpark.
