Native Dog campground is spread far and wide, and ideal for relaxing. It’s mere minutes from the Cathedral Rock National Park’s northern entrance, so shortly after arriving at the park you’ll soon be lazing in the picnic area with a cup of tea in hand.

Kids and adults alike will enjoy clambering on boulders and playing on the grass; there are plenty of boulders and lush grass to run and play on. If you feel like heading out on a walk, Warrigal track is an easy 1km circuit and Native Dog Creek is ideal for paddling. For a longer hike, carry on to Woolpack Rocks and, beyond that, Cathedral Rock.

Kangaroos and wallabies feed on open grassland and are often found posing for photographs among the boulders and tents. Birdwatchers will be thrilled; over 90 species of birds live in Cathedral Rock. Not to be outdone in the beauty stakes, myrtle tea trees, lemon bottlebrush and the pretty purple flowered coast mint bush all thrive here.
