We arrived at night with our24ft van to find we couldn't get into the site - we were just too big. So we ventured across the culvert to a large turning circle and set up there. It was fine. There was enough room and a fire scare we could use. It was right next to the road though. The creek was flowing. Local 4wd was reasonable, but just a tour, not full on 4wding. There were no facilities at all. We have a loo on board, so this was no an issue. Plenty of local timber for a fire. Quiet, respectful neighbours/other campers.
Nice secluded place off the beaten track. At the bottom of a small gorge with a stream running through it (warning, flooding dangers, don’t come after heavy rains). No ammenities beyond a couple of picnic tables. A couple of small fire pits, lots of wood around. Good Optus phone and internet coverage. Heaps of shade, great bushland to wander through. Great place to come and relax.
