This campsite is located in Tapin Tops National Park

This little-known national park, 30 km north-west of Wingham, protects swathes of old-growth forest as well as a number of threatened animal species including the parma wallaby, squirrel glider and sphagnum frog. 'Tapin' means dingo in the local Kattang language, and the park has been identified as a dingo management area. Picnicking, walking, swimming, bushwalking and scenic drives are all popular pastimes here. Note: as is the case in all national parks, do not feed wildlife as it encourages reliance on humans and can attract unwanted attention.
