Situated at the head of an attractive, narrow valley are three grassed clearings by the bubbling Torongo River and surrounded by lush wet sclerophyll forest.
The first, by the entry gate, is a small, grassed flat with little shade and no facilities.
The second is a large grassed hillside with few level or shaded sites.
The third, accessed by a road below the toilet block, is a creek flat enclosed by steep slopes with some level, shaded riverside sites and a second toilet.
All sites are exposed to day trippers and show signs of popularity - they are a little scruffy.
Shade is provided by steep mountains, mature Mountain Ash and scattered Blackwood wattles. Kookaburras and rosellas are common.
The access road continues on a few hundred metres around the hill side to end at the day park, with an information board and tracks to the tumbling falls.
The 1.5 hour (approx) walk takes in the Tooronga Falls and Ampitheatre Falls. It quite often follows the creek line with access to the water. Keep your eyes and ears primed for lyrebirds.
This is a free camping area.
