This campsite is located in Wollemi National Park

Part of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, Wollemi National Park is a sprawling, primeval landscape of precipitous escarpments and deep canyons, virgin forest, woodlands, flowering heath and pockets of rainforest. It’s brimming with Aboriginal and European history, myriad wildlife and walking trails aplenty. While there is little formal access to the park from Putty Rd, one trail that is worth checking out is the Bob Turner Track, which is accessed via 3 km of unsealed road, 500 m north of the Ampol service station at Colo Heights. This is 16 km north of the Colo Bridge. A 3 km walk leads down to a lovely swimming hole on the Colo River, just above some rapids.
