This is one of the best off the grid sites nsw has to offer.. deep in the newnes state Forrest, mostly flat, fire pits, pit toilets but mostly clean.. there is a small shop that sells basics.. zero phone service, amazing running creek, great walks, hidden swimming holes, wildlife, plenty of gold and coal mining history to discover. Old railway lines, coke ovens, glow worm tunnel(if you’re a keen hiker). 2 wheel drive access, even over the creek crossing if you’re a bit handy behind the wheel.. best To take all you need with you and plenty of water. You won’t be disappointed.

I could not recommend this place enough. Absolutely stunning. Quiet. Incredible. The only downside is the people. If you are going to fill up the fire pit with rubbish...and I mean literally fill it. Then you don’t belong in places like this. You will ruin it for everyone. TAKE YOUR RUBBISH WITH YOU!
