Description

Umbrawarra is a striking gorge with sharp red cliffs and sandstone overhangs. A small campground with a composting toilet is only a short distance from the gorge entrance. Water is not provided. Camping fees apply and should be deposited in the honesty box provided. The Park can be reached by all vehicles in the dry season (May - September). Towing caravans along this road is not recommended due to the corrugations. During the wet season (October - April), the road is only accessible by 4WD vehicles and may become impassable after rain. Consult maps and check road conditions on 1 800 246 199 prior to your visit, or visit the website www.roadreport.nt.gov.au Sites are unpowered and generators are not permitted in the park. Visit in the early to mid Dry Season when you can be sure the creek is flowing and you can swim in its rocky pools and sandy beaches. It's an easy 1km walk along the creek into the gorge, but those who like the road less travelled can wade, swim and rock-hop along the way. Pets are not permitted in the park.

Quiet campsite. Rangers were cleaning the long drop when we were there. So very pleasant. Lovely walk along the gorgeā€¦ water still running further up so still good for swimming. Spotted a water buffalo in the field next to the campground. Great find! Highly recommend

Flys, flys and more flys.. track in is ok, a bit corrugated in places.. the water has almost stopped flowing, but still a nice spot for a dip

No numbered sites, but 6 firepits with swingout cookers and 2m sq wooden benchs. Room for about 9 units, more if you are friendly. Plenty wood. It's like it grows on trees. Nice sandy beaches down the creek. Roads OK. Seen far worse.
