Large, open campground on the Broken River (4wd only)

The campground is pretty big, and is an open area without separately defined sites.

There are no facilities here at all, so you will need to be self sufficient.

Fires are permitted out of fire season, however you will need to bring your own firewood.

Water is available from the creek, however it should be treated before use.

The creek is also home to some resident platypus. Sit quietly by the waters edge around dawn or dusk and you are sure to catch a glimpse. They are a bit shy so you may need to be patient...
