When it’s time to head for the hills, why not go all the way to the plateau country of Barrington Tops National Park? This remote campground offers a unique wilderness getaway accessed via 4WD.

Set up your campsite before exploring the magnificent high country. The swamps of the plateau region have been declared an endangered ecological community as there are numerous rare and unique species that call this area home, such as the broad-toothed rat. However, you’re more likely to see flame robins and Richards pipets among the trees, and grazing red-necked wallabies.

Between 1 June and 30 September, this campground is only accessible by walking or cycling (5km one-way) because the 4WD access trails close.
