Sheepstation Creek camping area
With 40 sites, this sizeable camping area is just off Tweed Range Scenic Dr, 31 km north of Kyogle. The easy Rosewood Loop (6 km, 3 hr) and Palm Forest Walk (2 km, 1 hr) begin here: the former will take you through magnificent stands of old-growth flooded gum; the latter, luxuriant subtropical rainforest. Both of these walks cross the creek and also give access to views of Rosewood Falls. In the springtime, just after dark you may be treated to the forest around the camping ground filling with fireflies – a truly magical sight. Access to the campsite 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.
