Very large, dusty flat site, with limited shade. Perfect for solar. Camp is right on the rivers edge. Big enough for a couple of cars + trailers. Very private to, the only camp you can see a glimpse of is the one across the river. Around 350m walk to the nearest toilet and around the same distance to the little waterfall with rockpools for a quick dip. Both situated at the start of the track. Haven't spotted a croc during the day, but seen a couple of eyes and heard some big splashing going on at night. Fishing hasn't been to great, couple of smaller grunters and some catfish, river is probably getting overfished by the end of the season with all these tinnies in the water a people fishing from the banks. Massive Cherabin though. Palm cockatoos in the tree across the river every morning.

Stayed 1 night late September on site 10. Excellent birdlife, hundreds of black cockatoos drinking in the pools in front of site 8. Only tiny cherabin, very large croc cruising the pool just after dark. Mozzies on dusk and dawn. Very little shade except for early morning. Good large flat site but not enough shade for our liking.

A great camp to drop in tinnie, good bank, great view of river, lots of sunny spots for solar and dappled shade for camp. Perfect. Bird life abundant, wallabies and bush turkeys. Caught heaps of big cherubin here. Camp 11, 13, 14 also good like this one.
