This campsite is located in Avon Valley National Park
From summer to winter, from north to south, and from high outcrops to deep river valleys, the forests of Avon Valley National Park are constantly changing. The Avon River flows in winter and spring, when the river churns over spectacular rapids. During summer and autumn, the river diminishes to a series of pools in a bed of granite boulders and tea-tree thickets. The park also offers the chance to see a wide variety of birds and other wildlife. A total fire ban applies from Nov to Apr, and the park is closed on days of Catastrophic Fire Danger. No camping is allowed here during the annual Avon Descent White Water race, which is usually held on the first weekend of Aug. Note: although firewood is supplied, it is provided for cooking use only, on a per-vehicle basis.
