Taponga has toilets Taponga has water available You can go fishing at Taponga Pets allowed in Taponga

A reasonably large, level cleared circuit, surrounded by Peppermint forest with tea-tree understory above the rushing Taponga River.

Short grass, well shaded. A pleasant camp, not as popular as other Lower Big River sites, probably as it is not on the Big River.

Rated 4.3/5
