The best camping near Bellthorpe National Park guide

Overview

About

Bellthorpe National Park invites adventurers to explore its rugged terrain, featuring open eucalypt forests, rainforests, and cascading creeks. Venture along scenic trails on foot, horseback, or mountain bike, and marvel at the park's rich biodiversity. While camping is not available within Bellthorpe, nearby parks offer ample opportunities for forest and coastal camping.

When to go

The best time to visit Bellthorpe National Park is during the drier months, from April to September, when the tracks are more accessible and the weather is milder. The wet season, from December to March, can see heavy rainfall, making some areas of the park less accessible due to road closures and flooding.

  • Check park alerts for current warnings or closures before your visit, especially during wet weather.
  • Ensure you're prepared for rugged conditions; wear suitable shoes and carry sufficient drinking water.
  • Remember, domestic animals are not permitted in the park to protect the native wildlife.
