Wheeny Creek camping area
Wheeny Creek, in the southern section of the park, has 30 camping sites available. It’s a spacious, picturesque medley of grassy terraces by the creek, which is a tributary of the Colo River. It’s on Comleroy Rd off Bells Line of Road, 14 km north of Kurrajong, and is suitable for campervans and trailers. There is good mountain-biking here where Comleroy Rd heads on towards the Colo River. A few kilometres along there is a road to the left which gives access to Mountain Lagoon and then goes on to Bilpin. Come with your own firewood and water.

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.
