Please note
  • There are no marked sites at this campground.
  • Check the weather or contact Gloucester NPWS office on (02) 6538 5300 before you set out, as access via Barrington trail, to Little Murray campground, may be closed at other times of year due to snow, ice, and rain.
  • A water-based mould (Phytophthora cinnamomi) is prevalent in this area. The mould attacks the roots of plants causing them to rot, causing a dieback of trees and plants. Efforts are in place to contain the area of contamination south of Little Murray. You can assist the long-term containment of the mould by cleaning your shoes and mountain bike tyres before and after entering this region.
  • You can help protect the fragile ecosystems of the region by avoiding using soap, shampoo and detergents in waterways and taking all rubbish home with you.

When it’s time to head for the hills, why not go all the way to the plateau country of Barrington Tops National Park? This remote campground offers a unique wilderness getaway accessed via 4WD. Although only three hours from Newcastle, you'll be waking here to a dawn chorus of birdsong.

Set up your campsite before exploring the magnificent high country. The swamps of the plateau region have been declared an endangered ecological community as there are numerous rare and unique species that call this area home, such as the broad-toothed rat. However, you’re more likely to see flame robins and Richards pipets among the trees, and grazing red-necked wallabies.

Walk or cycle to spectacular Careys Peak lookout or plan your bushwalk via Link trail – Gloucester Tops to Careys Peak. If your style is more leisurely, try your hand at fishing and cook up your catch over a campfire.
