One of the best . A beautiful freshwater stream close to our camp sites We stayed on site 1 . Actually went back for a second stay days later, 6 night in total so relaxing. Road only fit for off road vehicles. Walking tracks very overgrown and hard to find. Well worth a stay.



Campsite 3 had a bit of a slope across the front down to the road, the other half behind the fence is fine. Heaps of space. Easy access down to the water from all the campsites along here. The water is very shallow and clear, wasn't too cold either.



Lovely spot close to town. Sites are large, parking is separate so vans would need to park at the front of the site. High, large table and fire pits, collect wood before entering the NP. Toilets are ok, plenty of swimming in shallow fresh water holes. Must book ahead It is NOT 4wd only at Latram River just Goanna Lagoon
