North Kobble bush camp provides a serene, remote setting in open eucalypt forest. Accessible only by trekking across steep terrain, this is the perfect destination for skilled, experienced hikers keen to explore a largely-untouched section of D'Aguilar National Park.

Weave through prehistoric-looking grasstrees and cycads, and enjoy impressive views of the pristine surrounding landscape through the trees.

Wander a short way to beautiful (though often dry) Kobble Creek, featuring sculptured bluestone on its base and sides. Here you may spy skinks and other lizards basking on the hot surface, the only other living creatures you’ll encounter during your stay.
