Washpools camping area
This secluded camping area is spacious, well shaded and good for families. You’ll need to cross Middlebrook Creek to get here – there’s a concrete causeway to make things easier, but flooding may occur after heavy rain, so keep an eye on the weather. Drive 13 km north from Scone on the New England Hwy and turn on to Cressfield Rd, then on to Middlebrook Rd. The campsite is 4 km north. While there are no official walking tracks, a wander along the banks of Middlebrook Creek when the water is low is worthwhile, with some interesting, eroded rock formations along the way. Bring your own drinking water.
