Youngville camping area
On Mt Royal Rd, this camping area has 4WD dry-weather access only. From here, you can take the 5 km return hike down to Carrow Brook. If you’re travelling north from Singleton, turn right off the New England Hwy onto Bridgeman Rd, which turns on to Mt Royal Rd. Bring your own firewood. There’s a water tank, but the water needs to be boiled or treated before drinking, so you might prefer to bring drinking water with you. Note: it’s generally 10°C colder here than on the valley floor.
