The gravel road is corrugated and potholed, but passable at low speeds. The campsites good, with 2, 8, 9 & 10 more open to the sky, for those with solar. The shallow creek has been damned to make a nice billabong area to swim, but the signs warn of ear infections and stone fish. As soon as we set foot outside the mosquitos were there biting.  Mozzies usually don't bother me but here they are more aggressive. There is only one 900m walking track open and it is not that nice, very weed infested bushland, scraggly pine trees and lot of fallen trees. The longer tracks were closed for "plantation management" and massively overgrown so wont be open anytime soon. The day area is big and grassy with 3 gleaming gas BBQs.
