This campsite is located in Girringun National Park
Girringun National Park, part of the traditional lands of the Warrgamaygan people, comprises 4 sections: Wallaman Falls, Mt Fox, Blencoe Falls and Dalrymple Gap Walking Track. The Wallaman Falls section in the Herbert River Valley is the most accessible; Wallaman Falls plunges 300 m off the Seaview Range, making it the longest single-drop waterfall in Australia. The gorge here supports rainforest with palms, umbrella trees and figs, while around the rim grow casuarinas, eucalypts and grasstrees. Camping is not permitted along Dalrymple Gap Walking Track; the nearest campsite is Broadwater camping area in Abergowrie State Forest. The Wet Tropics Great Walk, a network of 5 connected walking tracks, winds through this park. Advance bookings are required for camping.
