With ample shade and an open, grassy area, this hidden gem is the perfect place for family holiday fun.

Spend your days exploring the park on the 4WD and trail bike forest road network, accessible from the camping area. Cool off with a refreshing midday swim or kayak in forest-fringed Neurum Creek—keep your eye out for turtles and fish coasting alongside.

Sit around the fire ring, devouring a wood-fired meal and listening to a crackling camp fire welcome in the night. Go on a night walk to spot nocturnal animals—owls and possums are often active in the forest canopy.
