Perched on the banks of the Nymboida River, just off Moonpar Forest Dr, Platypus Flat provides tent sites in a grassy clearing beneath blue gums and river oaks, a short walk from your car. There are fabulous swimming holes within easy reach and you can launch your canoe or kayak here. If you’re in the mood for a short walk, the delightful 300 m Red Cedar Track begins 1 km east. Note: this is 2WD access in dry weather only, and the roads are unsuitable for caravans. Bring drinking water and firewood.

This campsite is located in Nymboi-Binderay National Park

Nymboi Binderay is the local Gumbaynggirr name for the river that cuts through this national park, 25 km north of Dorrigo, creating a dramatic backdrop for whitewater rafting. Access from Dorrigo is via Moonpar Rd off Tyringham Rd; or from the north via Nymboida–Kangaroo River Rd from Nymboida, 35 km south of Grafton. These roads are unsealed; you’ll need a 4WD if it’s wet.
