A reasonably pleasant camp, if it is not crowded or the weather is not too hot.
A sandy clearing with an adjacent large graveled car park which has limited shade.
Recently re-developed, the facilities (large shelter with 4 BBQs, tank, 5 benches, 2 BBQs, composting toilet) are good. Exposed to regular traffic on Plantation Tk although recent plantings may eventually improve privacy.
Popular horse riding camp.
Surrounded by a White Ironbark forest with an understory of wattle, brush and wildflowers.
There is a wide variety and quantity of small birds, plus flies. Wildflowers in spring.
An unusual feature is a flourishing grove of Sandalwood (NSW rainforest).
This is a free camping area.
First in, best dressed.
Longdrop or composting
