Bummaroo Ford - Abercrombie River National Park

National Park - New South Wales


Get away from city life at the riverside Bummaroo Ford campground. This family-friendly camping spot is the only place in Abercrombie River National Park where you can bring your caravan or trailer.

Take a hike along the Abercrombie River, but take your swimmers with you – when the weather’s warm and the water levels are high, you’ll definitely want to take a dip. It’s also a great place for paddling if you’ve got a canoe or kayak.

During the spring, the beautiful golden wattles and red and yellow callistemons (bottlebrushes) along the river come into flower, bringing feeding birds with them. It’s certainly a time of new life around here – it’s also the season you’ll hear frogs singing by the water. All year round, you’re likely to see kangaroos and wallabies near the campsite. Sit quietly by the waterholes at dusk and you might also see a platypus.

Fantastic quiet campground with many kangaroos, wallabies and birds. Three seperate long drop loos, clean & neat. On the river bank with lots of fireplaces. Not many sites and not very level. Big rigs may have difficulty turning round. We had to do some backing up with our 21ft fifth wheeler

This is a lovely spot isolated from the road but not far off the road. There are drop toilets one with wheelchair access. There are various fire rings and some flat camping areas along the creek. Access for larger vehicles could be a problem and would recommend walking in before venturing into the camp site. (There is a rest area just outside the entry) Recommend caution in wet weather as flash flooding is possible.
