Boyd River camping area
Boyd River camping area, set among snow gums, is accessible by 2WD but is subject to extreme weather and snowfalls. A highlight of camping here is the wildlife – at night gliders, brushtail possums, tawny frogmouths, wombats, red-necked wallabies and eastern grey kangaroos come out to feed. Access is via Kanangra Walls Rd, 20 km south of Jenolan Caves Rd. Some of the campsites are a short walk from the carpark. There is a shelter here built from reclaimed timber from the Sydney wharves; it has a large stone fireplace and is a welcome break from inclement weather. A few kilometres further down the road are the Kanangra Walls where there are walks out on to the plateau, taking in sensational views over the surrounding valleys. A short but steep trail also heads down to Kalang Falls. Bring firewood or a gas/fuel stove.

This campsite is located in Kanangra-Boyd National Park
Stunning views and remote walks are just some of the features of this mountainous park, much of which is declared wilderness. It’s a majestic landscape of wild rivers, waterfalls and deep gorges rimmed by national park and state forests. The grand sandstone terrain is part of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area.
