High country camping for nature lovers who don't mind walking to their campsite.
Accessed from Aeroplane Hill Walking track, this is a great base camp for the true nature loving hiker.
Exploring the remnants of the Gondwana rainforest with Antartic Beach and sub-alpine wetland are some of the highlights.
The high altitude and low levels of light pollution mean this is a great spot to star gaze but it also makes for very chilly nights in the cooler months.
