Dangars Gorge Campground - Oxley Wild Rivers NP

National Park - New South Wales


Dangars Gorge campground is a fabulous bush base for experiencing the rugged beauty of this World Heritage-listed falls country. You’ll be camping beside one of the most impressive waterfalls in NSW, on the edge of the Great Escarpment on the western edge of Oxley Wild Rivers National Park. Once you’ve set up camp, check out the scenic waterfall lookout, spectacular sight after heavy rain as water cascades over a 120m drop shrouding everything in mist and creating beautiful rainbows. There’s a range of walks like the McDirtys walking track, so after a picnic lunch, pull on your walking boots and get ready to explore. When the sun starts to go down, its time to barbecue up a feast before settling in round the campfire with a glass of your favourite drop and a night of stargazing.

Bookings are required. Book online at https://nsw.rezexpert.com/book?business_code=500652&utids=3941 or call the National Parks Contact Centre on 1300 072 757. There are no camping fees at this campground but a $6 booking fee applies.

The only problem is a 9km unsealed corigated road (which was great at 20k/h). But slow and steady wins. To bad no water fall it was dry as a bone. Great facilities though.
