Pademelon Park - Chichester State Forest

Free Camping - New South Wales


Recreation areas in the State forests of the Lower Barrington Tops are focused in Chichester State Forest, accessed via Dungog or Gresford. Chichester is divided into two distinct areas, the western side centred on the Allyn River and the eastern side centred on the Telegherry River.

Access to sites around Allyn River is via Dungog or Gresford, about 2 hours drive from Newcastle or 3.5 hours from Sydney. Coming from Gresford, the road crosses a number of causeways that may be impassable during periods of heavy rain.

For access to sites along Telegherry River, take Chichester Dam Road from Dungog and turn right into Wangat road to get into the forest. Recreation sites can be accessed from Wangat, Middle Ridge Frying Pan Road.

A little further from the river is Pademelon Park, with its large, secluded sites divided by trees. This site is recommended to groups of campers who wish to have a good time without disturbing other campers and forest visitors.
