Most things in life are far more satisfying when you have to work for them, so make your way to Policemans Point campground – accessible only by hiking or mountain biking. Be rewarded for your efforts with a peaceful campsite on the banks of the beautiful Capertee River, where there are no vehicles or generators to be heard, just the sounds of the natural environment. Go for a swim if the weather’s warm and the river’s running. Explore the area further by heading off for a riverside walk.

Bring your binoculars for birdwatching and keep an eye out too for wallabies and wombats. At dusk and dawn, you’re likely to see more wildlife.

This campground is suitable for anyone willing to leave the car behind and ‘go bush’. It’s also an ideal place to try bush camping for the first time, as you can park as close as 1km away.
