You need to be an experienced off-track walker with the right hiking equipment and excellent navigational skills to walk to this remote camp site.
Nestled in a saddle between two steep and rocky ridgelines, this camp site is a welcome rest after a long day’s hike. Spend the night surrounded by eucalypt forest dotted with grass trees in a thick grassy understorey.
From the Border Track head up Mount Worendo (1,140m) before descending to the camp site in the saddle. As you walk, keep an eye out for glimpses of the surrounding peaks and cliffs through the trees.
This park is part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area, famed for its ongoing geological processes, evolutionary history, and diversity (especially of rare, threatened and endemic species).
