A late-afternoon or early-morning walk around the high-altitude swamp amid soaring snow gums is an experience that will remain with you long after you leave this spacious campground. It’s along Barrington Tops Forest Rd, 68 km west of Gloucester and 16 km west of the Dilgry Circle Rd turn-off. It can also be accessed from the west via Scone and Moonan Flat. It is a great base from which to explore the Barrington Plateau, being central to many of the features, trails and walks. There is a shelter with a fireplace, which is pleasant on the frequent cold nights encountered at this high altitude. There’s water in the creek, but it needs to be treated or boiled before it’s safe to use. Bring your own firewood and gas/fuel stove.
