Jacky Barkers Campground - Nowendoc National Park

National Park - New South Wales


Ideal for intrepid, self-reliant campers, this campground is nestled in a pretty hidden valley on a tributary of Jacky Barker Creek. Whether you’re camping alone or in a group, you’ll find each site at Jacky Barkers campground is wonderfully private, and blessed with unique scenic views.

Magnificent river oaks encircle sun-dappled rock pools, while eucalypts and rainforest shelter the creek lines. Those who love birdwatching will thrill at the sight of honeyeaters, bowerbirds and brightly coloured parrots, while everyone will want to spy the various animals that gather at the creek’s edge late in the day.

Once you’ve set up your tent or trailer, you can make use of the barbecues and picnic tables in the adjacent picnic area, or check out nearby Wrights Hut. Those feeling energetic can try mountain biking or bushwalk the 1.8 km loop that passes the ruins of the old Watts Homestead.

Combine 4WD camping and Aboriginal heritage with birdwatching, swimming, bushwalking and mountain biking at Jacky Barkers campground in NSW’s Northern Tablelands.
