Platypus Flat campground is an idyllic setting among the tall trees and rugged granite gorges of Nymboi-Binderay National Park on the Dorrigo plateau. Overlooking the rainforest-lined river banks of Nymboida River, it’s an ideal spot for adventure-seekers who love kayaking, walking and fishing.
Located along the Moonpar Forest drive, pitch your tent and settle in before you explore this rugged country. Launch your canoe for a paddling trip along the beautiful river, or try a guided rafting or kayak adventure. In the heat of summer, the nearby swimming hole is excellent for a refreshing dip.
In the evening, stoke up a campfire in one of the fire pits and settle back for a wood-fired barbecue feast. If you’re keen to see some wildlife, grab a torch and look for tiger quolls, gliders and owls.
