Discover this secret spot for yourself! Pitch your tent beneath a canopy of eucalypt and pine trees and admire views down the valley to the Severn River. This quiet and small camping area is perfect for self-sufficient campers looking for peace and quiet.

Plan your visit following good rains, when water from the Severn River creates a stunning falls display, tumbling over broad rocky slabs into the frothing pools below.

Rock-hop along the steep rocky hillside to the riverbed and explore traprock gorges and freshwater pools. Keep your eyes peeled for the small population of critically-endangered brush-tailed rock-wallabies that live among the cliffs.
