Forest Tops camping area
If you enter the national park along Tweed Range Scenic Dr, 30 km north of Kyogle, you’ll see signposted access for this camping area. The medium–difficult 10.5 km Booyong Walk (5 hr) sets out from here and links Forest Tops and Sheepstation Creek, passing tumbling waterfalls and enticing swimming holes. The camping sites are a 10–50 m walk from your car. Access includes unpaved roads, reachable by 2WD. Boil or treat the water before use; gas/fuel stove preferred; bring your own firewood.

This campsite is located in Border Ranges National Park
Sprawling across the very northern perimeter of NSW and extending for 85 km along the Queensland state border, this World Heritage–listed national park embraces 3 wilderness areas. It is an area of great biodiversity, with the border region said to have the highest concentration of marsupial, bird, snake and frog species in Australia. Bush camping is permitted in the park (keep 200 m from public roads, walking tracks and other facilities) but vehicle-based bush camping is prohibited. The Tweed Range Scenic Dr loops through the park and gives access to the camping areas, as well as a number of walks. Some lead to spectacular lookouts, such as the Bar Mountain and Pinnacle lookouts.
