Nymboida River Campground - Nymboida National Park

National Park - New South Wales


If camping in remote, unspoilt beauty surrounded by dramatic landforms while neighbouring the beautiful Nymboida River appeals, point your 4WD towards Nymboida River campground. Push your canoe out into the river, or take a summer dip while listening for the distinctive chink of the bellbirds. There are no marked tracks, but experienced bushwalkers will love the wild beauty of Nymboida. This is a quiet campground and you may well have the place to yourself. Even getting there’s an adventure. Old Glen Innes-Grafton Road passes through a historic hand-cut tunnel into the stillness of the deserted valley. Cast your imagination into the past and you may hear the snap of the reins on the Cobb & Co. coach team, the thud of the timber getter’s axe, or the cry of the bullocky hauling down the track to Clarence River.
