Set in a natural amphitheatre on the valley floor, Terarra Creek camping and picnic area’s location at the centre of the park makes it the perfect base for exploring. Easy to access and naturally sheltered between the hills with a pleasant open grassy area, it’s ideal for birdwatchers, bushwalkers, sightseers and mountain bikers. Dripping Rock, Mount Nangar hiking track and Mount Murga walking track are all just one km away.

Whether you’re coming for a day walk or planning to stay overnight, you’ll enjoy the view of forested hills, the curious kangaroos, possums and gliders and the serenity of this sheltered place. Bring your binoculars for birdwatching and look out for threatened bird species such as the turquoise parrot, little lorikeet, speckled warbler, brown treecreeper and several species of honeyeaters and robins. In spring, take a walk along Terarra Creek, when it’s lined with the pretty flowering pink honey-myrtle.
