Basic bush camping on the edge of the Wongi Waterholes.
The sites are shaded by large eucalypt trees, fairly level and in a nice setting. There are sites suitable for caravans/motohomes and ohers that are more suited to tent based camping.
The waterholes attract a large amount of wildlife and is a great spot for bird watching. The lakes are also a lovely spot to go kayaking. The water holes are pretty deep and nice for a swim, don't be fooled by the tea coloured water, it is just the tannins from the native vegetation and does not mean the water is dirty.
There are cold water showers, flushing toilets and picnic tables provided.
$5.75 per person per night or $23.00 per family group per night.
$3.20 per person per night for students and accompanying adults on approved excursions.
Bookings can be made over the phone or internet.
