Sandy Hills (Bicentennial National Trail) Campground

Last Updated Jan 2014 | Originally suggested by c.j.b

Sandy Hills (Bicentennial National Trail) has picnic fireplaces There are areas available in Sandy Hills (Bicentennial National Trail) for horse riding

A small rustic shelter dedicated for BNT travellers.

The Bicentennial National Trail is Australia's longest specified Horse trekking trail (with cyclists and bushwalkers getting in on the act), and the local community at Sandy Hills keeps a small shelter for BNT travelers to use.

The shelter is a corrugated tin shack, with bed-bases for unrolling a swag and a fireplace. It's not really place for city-slickers in motorized transport to park for the night (try the nearby Crooked Creek Rest Area), but is near-perfect for the rest of us 'alternative' travelers.
