Bluegum Flat camping area (bush camping)
It’s a short 30 m walk from the carpark to this camping ground in the park’s south. It’s on the Clyde River, accessed via Blue Gum Flat Rd off Yadboro Rd. A short walk along the river brings you to a wonderful swimming hole, and a few kilometres east along Yadboro Rd is the trackhead for the walk to the famous Pigeon House Mountain, named in 1770 by Captain James Cook as he sailed up the east coast. Bluegum Flat is a bush-camping site with no facilities so bring your own everything.

This campsite is located in Morton National Park
Morton National Park is a world of dense bush, spectacular sandstone country, deep gullies and thundering waterfalls. This national park has been a popular retreat for more than a century – well-developed visitor sites are a feature in the northern section, while the south, which includes the rugged Budawang Ranges, caters for the wilderness-savvy walker. While Pigeon House Mountain is better known, the strenuous hike up to the Castle is spectacular, with incredible views over the Budawang Ranges.
