We drove in from grindels hut hoping to tow into here . The road has one section of steep gully that would Make it tough . We decided to try the track out to arkaroola and also though a bit rough in places to tow in . The water was flowing nicely when we came through and there is a pretty creek crossing . Nice flat shaded areas to camp . We wish could stay for sure . Walking in from the camp site there is actually a gentle waterfall. If we had roof top camper would choose this site.

Top spot ,great drive in



Stayed 2 nights. Great spot. Has 3 fire pits but they are close together and you'd be devastated if someone else was there. You'd be camping right on top of them. No long drop.
