A short walk to this campground on the Nymboida River in Nymboi-Binderay National Park (on the Dorrigo plateau).

Park your car in the car park then walk a short distance to the waters edge where you can set up camp among the trees and rugged granite gorges.

Then you can kick back and soak up the peace and serenity of this inspiring location.

The activities are endless, you can go swimming, kayaking, canoeing, rafting or try a spot of fishing right from your campsite, if you catch one you can use one of the gas/electric barbecues (free), fire rings (firewood supplied) or wood barbecues to cook it up. You won't get fresher than that.

Don't forget to have your torch at the ready when it gets dark, you may spot some tiger quolls, gliders and owls, just to name a few. Definitely one of my favorite's.
