Maxwells Flat is a secluded grassy area next to a small creek. You can reach it via Causeway Rd off Knodingbul Rd – the best approach is from the northern intersection of these roads.

This campsite is located in Cottan-Bimbang National Park

Walk under the jigsaw canopy of towering mountain forest, enjoy a scenic drive along Knodingbul Forest Rd and take in the beautiful view from Blue Knob, or roll along Myrtle Scrub Rd and unpack a picnic next to the historic forestry bridge over Cells River. You can reach this national park via Oxley Hwy, about 70 km west of Wauchope or 65 km east of Walcha. Roads in the park are unsealed, so if it’s been raining call for information on road conditions.
