The best camping near Gloucester Falls guide

Overview

About

Welcome to Gloucester Falls, where campers can escape and feel truly connected to nature. This beautiful spot offers a great outdoor atmosphere, with lush bushland and a tumbling, crystal-clear creek. Whether you're pitching a tent, caravaning, or bringing your motorhome, there's plenty of space among the trees to lay down your bed. Around the campground, you'll find walking tracks, swimming holes, and endless wildlife. And if you're looking for an easy day trip, Oxley Wild Rivers National Park is close by. With over 50,000 hectares of natural land, you won't lack adventure. So pack your camping gear, and enjoy a peaceful, serenading night in the countryside.

When to go

The ideal time to visit Gloucester Falls is during autumn, with its cooler, drier days perfect for walking tracks. Spring brings a burst of wildflowers along the Polblue Swamp track, while summer offers a chance to spot the eastern water dragon. Be mindful of the weather, as conditions can change rapidly in this region.

Know before you go

  • Check current alerts before your visit as the park may close due to adverse weather or fire danger.
  • Some bushwalking experience is recommended due to the track's short steep hills and occasional steps.
  • Non-flush toilets and picnic facilities are available at Gloucester Falls picnic area.
  • Bring a topographic map, compass, and GPS for bushwalking, as mobile reception is limited.
  • Fishing is permitted with a current NSW recreational fishing licence.
