CampKings Crew #GTFO
3 out of 5 Tent Pegs
The CampKings Crew headed out to the Northern Blue Mountains on this #GTFO adventure to Wheeny Creek free campground. This site is situated in the Wollemi National Park, a stones throw away from the Lower Hunter regions of New South Wales, in Eastern Australia. With the bellbirds whistling away in the background, you can kick the camp chair back, put your feet up and take in the serenity in the glow from the red hot embers of the campfire.
How do I get there?
Sydney and 60 minutes from Blacktown. Take the turn off where Kurmond becomes Kurrajong, then follow it all
the way to the end. At this point, the road turns to dirt track. BEWARE - The terrain in is best suited to 4WD,
though the trek can be made in a 2WD or AWD as long as it has not been raining.
What can I see and do there?
Some of the largest and oldest eucalypts that you have ever seen
Plenty of Bellbirds
Possums and Bilbies
What should I bring?
Tent and Tarp set up (sites are not marked)
What did we rate?
Campgrounds are nice and flat with plenty of fire pits and there are 3 grounds to choose from - Kingfisher, Boobook and Cheese Tree
What was not great?
Be careful negotiating the winding twists and turns down into the ancient valley as there have been many, MANY accidents over the edge.
CampKings #GTFO TRIP CLIP Review
More interesting info;
Be careful negotiating the winding twists and turns down into the ancient valley and you will be welcomed by some of the largest and oldest eucalypts that you have ever seen. Then the track will reveal three campgrounds to choose from - Kingfisher, Boobook and Cheese Tree.
The CampKings Crew chose Boobook as it was the easiest to access from the carpark and looked to be the flattest site but be warned, if it rains, this is the site most prone to flooding! Our CAMPA-KIT solo tarp set up took only 27 minutes and once we were set up it was time to crank the fire, crack a beer, settle in and relax.
When you are set up you can wander up into the mountain and across to the creek in which you can swim if you so desire...
There are around 30 campsites available and scattered throughout are fire pits, however as the removal or collection of wood is prohibited in National Parks, you should bring your own firewood. There are good, clean facilities here, flush toilets but no showers or running water so bring your supply to drink and soap.
With the bellbirds whistling away in the background you can kick the camp chair back, put your feet up and take in the serenity and ambience of this place in the glow from the red hot embers of the campfire.
All in all, the campgrounds are good quality and flat with well maintained facilities. There is no mobile reception at all so if you are looking for an adventure with no contact to the outside world, this is a great place and as long as you are prepared with shelter, water and the usual bug spray or repellant lanterns, there are some great times to be had here. The CampKings Crew will certainly be visiting this free camp ground again in the future.
