Richards camping area
There are several excellent walks you can take from the Richards camping area, which is situated beside Fiery Creek. The 21 km overnight Beeripmo Walk makes a fine introduction to the diversity of plants and trees at Mt Cole. Another option, the Grevillea Walk, comprises a short trail to the Glut picnic area – along the way, you might spot the rare local species of grevillea. Follow Glut Rd to reach the campground. Dogs are allowed as long as they are under your control at all times.

This campsite is located in Mount Cole State Forest
Sizeable Mt Cole State Forest is bordered by Mt Buangor State Park to the west, and cedes some territory in the south to pine plantations. Four-wheel-driving is a popular activity in the thick of the forest, while horseriders also make their way along the local tracks. Some excellent bushwalks round out the area’s attractions. The forest is 25 km north-west of Beaufort. Turn off the Western Hwy towards Raglan, where you pick up the Mt Cole Rd.
