Bangalow Road camping area
As its name suggests, you’ll find this on Bangalow Rd, 3.8 km from the Mt Faulk Rd intersection, amid majestic blue gum and blackbutt forest. There are wood BBQs, although you’ll need to bring your own firewood, and gas/fuel stoves are preferred. Bring your own water.

This campsite is located in Watagans National Park
Perched on Newcastle’s doorstep, 30 km to the south-west, this rainforested wonderland protects the headwaters of small creeks feeding the Hunter River and Lake Macquarie. There are unpaved roads from Cooranbong via Martinsville Rd, Freemans Waterhole via Mt Faulk Rd or Cessnock via Watagan Rd. If the roads are wet, you’ll need a 4WD.
