If you like to answer the call of the wild with a night in the rugged wilderness, then head for the remote beauty of Gummi campground on the northern boundary of Barrington Tops National Park. Roughly halfway between Scone and Gloucester, you’ll need a 4WD to get to this remote camping spot, high in the sub-alpine region.
Spend your days fishing in the crystal clear Manning River, or explore the high country trails on horseback or mountain bike. Wildlife is plentiful in this unspoilt region, so keep your eyes peeled for kangaroos, wombats, and the rare, elusive long-nosed potoroo.
Between 1 June and 30 September, this campground is only accessible by walking or cycling (3km one-way) because the 4WD access trails close.

Interesting drive to get to it. Lovely creek and small waterfall. Toilet up on the hill and needed attention. Area itself had been wet and chewed up by vehicles. Numerous firesites had been created. Creekside section somewhat small. Bits of glass from inconsiderate campers.

Nice quiet spot. The track is not suitable for those towing a caravan or driving AWD's. It can get very slippery when rains.
