Buckwong Creek camping area (Davies High Plain area)

4WD Dry weather access Free No dogs/pets No rubbish disposal Picnic area Ranger Vehicle-based camping Wood fireplace Fishing Walking trails

Buckwong Creek is one of several possible stopovers on the 4WD Davies Plain Track, which heads north from near Mt Cobberas (access is off Limestone Creek Rd) to eventually hit the Murray River near the Alpine Way. It’s only a small site, but if it’s full there are other options at Dogman Hut to the north and Davies Plain Hut to the south. A 4WD vehicle is needed to reach this isolated bush-camping site, which is only 3 km from the Murray.

Crossings of the Murray River and Buckwong Creek are required to reach this site from the north, so heavy rain can make access impossible. Note: the camping area is subject to seasonal closure.
