Wanda Wandong campground is a large campground set among native eucalypt and wattle trees in the north of Goobang National Park. There’s plenty of space for kids to run around, and adults will love relaxing in the picnic area with its handy picnic tables and barbecues for a smoky, succulent treat.

Explore the park by car, mountain bike, or on foot. Be sure to venture along the small walking trail near the campground entrance that has interpretive signs about native vegetation and Aboriginal cultural heritage of the local area.

Wallabies, kangaroos and echidnas may be seen around the campground too. In fact, you'll see wildlife practically spilling out of the bush. During spring and summer, reptiles such as lace monitors, shingle-backs and blue-tongued lizards can be seen lazing in the sun. Birds of prey and parrots often fly overhead, while kookaburras, thornbills, robins and treecreepers move between the trees within the campground. At night, grab your torch to spot possums, sugar gliders, small bats and boobook owls in the treetops.

It’s also a great place to stay if you’re looking for cheap accommodation near Dubbo, especially if you’re visiting Taronga Western Plains Zoo.
