A grassed creek flat surrounded by White Ironbark forest with a thin understudy of wattle and brush, wildflowers and old gold diggings with Grey Box and Red Ironbark on the flinty ridges.
This a pleasant, quiet site in spring and autumn, although it may be hot and dusty in summer.
The fenced formal facility (shelter, table, 2 BBQs, & WC), established as a bicycle trail camp, has limited shade but there are many informal shaded sites nearby, including a large bush camp site just up the nearby road on the right.
Peppercorn, apple, quince, grape and cacti are remnants of mining settlements, which were extensive through this forest.
The Waanyarra Creek is normally dry.
