Ideal for nature lovers and bird watchers, Whispering Oaks campground and picnic area provides an authentic outback camping experience. Remote, quiet and peaceful, you can relax and reconnect with nature.
Set up your tent, caravan or camper trailer among the trees, and enjoy your meals on the shaded picnic tables. During the day head off on a walk through the bush, keeping your eyes open for emus, red kangaroos and eastern grey kangaroos as they roam among the vegetation. And at night look to the sky and take in the impressive view of the stars, thanks to the minimal light pollution.
Spring and autumn are great times to visit, as you avoid the hot summer days and cold winter nights. Winter has its own charm though, as you cosy up around the campfire and admire the cold nights, which can sometimes dip below zero.
