Extended, pleasant, level, river flats surrounded by the forested foothills of the alps.
Shaded by Peppermint, Manna Gum, Blackwood and wattles. Most sites open to low use road. Popular in peak periods.
Thanks to Murray for the following updates...
Davon's Flat now has a toilet. Wood for a campfire is scarce consider bringing wood in.
Plenty of small brown trout early November we tried not to catch them but did get a nice Rainbow Trout. Pretty busy at weekends but not too bad during the week if it's not school holidays. This and Pickering's are the only sites that you can see the river from your campsite as far as we could tell. Happy campers!
