Lemon Tree Flat camping area
To reach the camping area, follow Wallangra Rd north from Ashford and turn onto Limestone Rd. Parts of the road are unsealed, so if it’s been raining check with the parks office for road conditions. You can set up your tent next to the Severn River, where you can swim, explore up or downstream, or fish for Murray cod, golden perch and catfish. There’s drinking water here, but you’ll need to bring your own firewood.

This campsite is located in Kwiambal National Park
The Macintyre and Severn rivers have chiselled drama and beauty into the granite landscape of Kwiambal National Park. Highlights include Macintyre Falls and the deep river gorge at Dungeon Lookout, both reached via short walking tracks. There is also a series of caves along Limestone Creek, and an easy walk through one of them, though you will need to bring a torch. When the water is low, rock hopping in the gorge above Macintyre Falls provides access to an unusual landscape of scoured and polished granite. And the walk down to the gorge below the falls is well worth it, with dramatic scenery and pleasant swimming. The park is 90 km north of Inverell and 40 km to the north-west of Ashford.
