McIntyres campground is a picturesque, riverside campsite on the banks of the Goodradigbee River. Stop for a picnic under the shade of the eucalypts on your way to visit the historic McIntyres Hut, or stay overnight and enjoy the rugged beauty of this campsite. After you’ve picked the best campsite among the eucalypts along the banks and river flats, it’s time to start exploring. Why not head off to the historic McIntryres Hut? Go for an easy walk to the river where you can do a spot of fishing and watch the birds darting across the rushing waters. Or just find yourself a soft grassy patch to stretch out, relax and take in the fresh mountain air of this back-to-basics campground. The only thing to disturb the peace might be a resident kangaroo or wallaby as they move in to feed on the river flats at dusk.
