Gloucester River camping area (eastern section)
There’s a bit of everything available here, including walking tracks, swimming holes and plenty of wildlife. One of the few camping grounds in the east of the park, it lies 38 km south-west of Gloucester on Gloucester Tops Rd. A short drive away is Gloucester Tops, the starting point for a number of additional walking trails. There are 2 walks from the camping area itself: along Sharpes Creek and another along the Gloucester River. The wildlife that frequents the clearing here includes red-necked pademelons, brush turkeys and lyrebirds. If you don’t bring your own drinking water, boil or treat river water before use, and bring your own firewood.
