Little Murray Campground - Barrington Tops NP

National Park - New South Wales


This is suitable for 4WD only with tents or camper trailers. 

Remote Little Murray campground offers walking, mountain biking, fishing, and 4WD touring, in the wilderness of Barrington Tops National Park, three hours from Newcastle.

When it’s time to head for the hills, why not go all the way to the plateau country of Barrington Tops National Park? This remote campground offers a unique wilderness getaway accessed via 4WD. Although only three hours from Newcastle, you'll be waking here to a dawn chorus of birdsong.

Set up your campsite before exploring the magnificent high country. The swamps of the plateau region have been declared an endangered ecological community as there are numerous rare and unique species that call this area home, such as the broad-toothed rat. However, you’re more likely to see flame robins and Richards pipets among the trees, and grazing red-necked wallabies.

Walk or cycle to spectacular Careys Peak lookout or plan your bushwalk via Link trail – Gloucester Tops to Careys Peak. If your style is more leisurely, try your hand at fishing and cook up your catch over a campfire.

Little Murray campground is in the Barrington Tops precinct of Barrington Tops National Park. To get there:

  • From Gloucester take Thunderbolts Way; this road becomes Scone Road and Barrington Tops Forest Road.
  • Turn left into Barrington trail at Barrington trail picnic area located on the left after passing Devils Hole
