Just a short drive from Gibraltar House, Mulligans campground is a tranquil camping and picnic area near the forested haven of Little Dandahra Creek. Basic facilities make this a good spot for families looking for a weekend getaway, or adventure travellers looking for a jumping-off point for the extended Gibraltar-Washpool World Heritage walk.

Bring the binoculars for a spot of bird watching, or escape the summer heat with a cool dip down at the creek edge. Barbecues make this a great picnic spot for a Sunday rest, too, with lots of grass to accommodate everyone.

The area is named after Bill Mulligan, an early entrepreneur who promoted a hydro-electric scheme in the early 1900s. You can still glimpse Mulligan’s hut and the remains of two historic weirs as you relax by the water’s edge.

Like Gibraltar House, this is a perfect spot to delve into other national parks and reserves in the area, including Butterleaf, Mann River, Nymboida and Capoompeta.
