Dispersed bush camping by a large dam wall (with little water).
A quiet camp surrounded by box-iron bark forest and wattle by a very low use track.
Open shade to most sites provided by Grey Box and Yellow Gum (White Ironbark) with some heath understory and minimal grass cover to the gravelly soil.
The area shows signs of early settlement - eucalyptus oil tanks, clearings and a grassed house site with two peppercorn trees overlooking a paddock of Whirrakee wattle. Spectacular wildflowers in spring.
The area is claimed to have the highest concentration of songbirds in Australia. Being on the north/south divide between habitats species common to both wetter and dryer areas are present.
