Doon Goonge Campground - Chaelundi National Park

National Park - New South Wales


Doon Goonge campground offers a peaceful and remote riverside camping experience. Relax and enjoy the tranquillity of the riverbank or set off bushwalking into the Chaelundi Wilderness Area. There are ample sites available for your camper trailer or tents. The campground is also spread across cleared flats in the northern section of Chandlers Creek, providing the perfect space for low-key vehicle-based camping. From here, you can cast a fishing line off from the riverbank, head out for an energetic bushwalk, or get your cossie on for a refreshing splash about.
