An attractive ridge top site designed mainly for car/tent camping.
The well grassed camping/picnic ground descends from the roadside parking area surrounded by lush green wet sclerophyll forest - large Mountain Ash with a dense understory of Blackwood, wattles and tree ferns. Shade to the parking area is limited until late afternoon.
Facilities (4 fireplaces, 5 tables, shelter and WC) are new and the area is well maintained.
Nearby are old sawmill sawdust heaps and tramway graded tracks. Starlings Gap is the centre of over 100k of walking trails. The Gap can be crowded with bush walkers at weekends.
This is a free camping area.
