This campsite is located in Mitchell River National Park
For outback scenery and Aboriginal culture, Mitchell River National Park is among the best in Australia. In full flood, the Mitchell Falls are an amazing sight. A bushwalking track leads to the falls, where you can enjoy a refreshing dip. The Mitchell Plateau abounds in wildlife and plants, and is home to many ancient rock-art sites, most of which have remained untouched for thousands of years.
