Bookings

Bookings are not available for this campground.

Mount Werong campground is a great base to explore the remote and wild southern Blue Mountains by 4WD, on foot or mountain bike. It's also a popular destination for history buffs and  families. Discover a rugged landscape rich in tall forests, wildlife, and both Aboriginal and European heritage.

This area is part of the traditional lands of the Gundungurra and Wiradjuri people, and you may be lucky enough to see Aboriginal rock art sites and grinding grooves.

Close to the campground, Ruby Creek Mine harks back to early pioneering life. You can explore these old mine remnants along the 2.5km Ruby Creek walking track. Learn more about the area's mining history at nearby Yerranderie Private Town along the 4WD Oberon Colong historic stock route.

At night, settle in around the campfire and enjoy an evening beneath a blanket of stars. Listen out for the call of the powerful owl echoing through the darkness. Remember to bring your mountain bike to explore the nearby trails.
