Amazing views from the ridge above camp 6

Camp 6 is on a ridge up the escarpment at about 580m elevation with stunning sunset views. It’s an ideal starting point to hike uphill to some impressive overhanging rocks and to the ridge separating our property from the Wet Tropics World Heritage area.
Camp 6 itself offers some great views, but hiking further up the escarpment will reward you with breathtaking panoramic views.

Access: 4WD, small Camper Van, Camper Trailer (very good reversing skills required).

Suggested occupancy up to 10 people and 5 vehicles.

Terence Purkiss 5 Very private, great views, all round loverly! small-trailer Perfect for our set-up, thanks 2_one-of-best
Misha 5 Very private site with a beautiful view. Great spot to watch the sun set. We were unfortunately there while it was very windy, and so couldn’t use the fire pit because of the dried grass close by. If the weather was calmer, it would be a very nice spot to relax. roof-tent Plenty of flat land to park and set tent up. We unfortunately were unable to use our tent due to the wind and rain being very strong on the ridge. This is one of the costs of being up high in the property, and I can’t imagine there’s much that can be done to protect the site from the wind. 2_one-of-best
SARAH 5 Heaven, up on the range, magical views. More shade than anticipated and was an exceptionally hot weekend ( 30-32 being unusual for the time of the year) but it was very comfortable . The sunsets are seriously awesome large-tent We re apprehensive about pitching the large tent when we had looked at the site previously but in reality 1_best

Peter 4 Privacy was good, good views, especially nice at sunset, toilet was good, level camp site, not near any water but to compensate good walk up the ridge line. Gives you something to do medium-tent No problems with camp site, good holding ground for tent pegs, not to hard to hammer in 3_better-than-most
Todd 5 It’s elevated so it has lovely views. small-tent Very good though a bit stony for the tents. 2_one-of-best

Paula 5 Very private, with access to great views and fabulous walking track medium-trailer All good 3_better-than-most
Michael 5 Great views, secluded, could even hear the falls in the distance. swag,small-tent,large-tent Plenty of space for the our tents and gazebo. Only thing I could suggest was next time you have the grader/bulldozer up there would be to level it out a bit more but that’s just a suggestion, it was fine as it was.
[OUR COMMENT: thanks, done that :-)]

anonymous 5 Nice view, private, perfectly positioned camp fire site small-trailer,roof-tent No difficulties. 3_better-than-most
Caitlin 5 We loved it. Full privacy and a perfect view of the sunset.
Even in winter it was quite hot during the day, so during summer we would definitely look at a site closer to water. However for winter this site was perfect.
swag It was perfect. We set up our awning and swag on the flat area about 10m from the fire pit. There was plenty of room. 2_one-of-best
Bernadette 5 This is one of the best campsites we have ever stayed at. Well kept, well thought out, amazing views, lots of exploring, lots of relaxing, with a perfect view for stargazing and having sundowners. roof-tent,small-trailer Perfect. We were able to find a perfect sized space for the camping itself, away from the fire with space to spare. Perfect space also if we were to go with friends. No improvements necessary. 2_one-of-best
Elyse Fitzpatrick 4 Privacy was great. View was amazing- a couple less branches and it would have been spectacular but it wasnt a long climb to the top of the hill for more viewing. Probably the one site that wasnt very shady but again we knew we picked an elevated campground and we had plenty of shade ourselves. small-tent Absolutely no issues with setup. It was easy to access, room for turning and maneuvering. 2_one-of-best
Michael 5 5 star because it is what it is. Natural wild high and breezy. Also has the essential toilet and fire pit. Nature at its best. Seclusion on a hill. roof-tent,small-trailer More than adequate flat areas. 2_one-of-best
