Spangled Drongo Dell is one of four campsites at Black Mountain. Each campsite is defined and private from the other sites.  In addition to the campsites, the `Ant Shack' provides full accommodation for up to 4 people .

Drongo Dell (approx. 9 *5 mtrs) is a smaller campsite suitable for one large tent.- fire place and table provided. This is one of my favourite sites because it sits beside Black Mountain's main gully and is closest to Nymboida River which you hear softly making its way downstream. 

Shared amenities include hot showers and composting toilets a little further up the hill.  There is a small compost toilet nearby, if you are caught short.

From driving through the trees and up to trail, to reaching different mountains, to being greeted at the front gate and escorted to my campsite by lovely property owners. It was one of my favourite camping trips ever.

Surrounded by The River which goes upstream all night, it’s the most peaceful sound to sleep to.

Such a remote place to do your thinking, carving wood out of a variety of timber, reading a book and doing some cooking, something you can enjoy with the family and kids, friends or even just on your own.

Amenities were great, beautiful shower room and compost toilet was very clean.

I would 100% stay here again.

Don’t second think coming here! Just do it!
