anonymous 3 Everything great, but site detracts from experience with such a large, unshaded bare-earth pad. Could not be well used in heat of day and certainly would be difficult in summer. Native tree species not conducive to providing overhead shade due to potential for limb-sheding but a solution could be considered. Even though there may be an aesthetic policy not to have unnecessary infrastructure at the sites, I think permanent posts to erect a large tarp would be a great addition and would not impact on amenity or aesthetic of site. This would be preferable to people tieing off to marginal trees and also make life easier and improve the experience. The site certainly can’t be used without tarpage. small-tent,roof-tent See comment above on campsite Its better than most
anonymous 5 Great site. The surrounding area had recently been burnt which seemed to decrease the amount of birdlife observed as opposed to last time and gave it a bit of a sparse feeling but hopefully the burning is for the greater good. [OUR COMMENT: yes the indigenous-inspired fire management increases native flora and fauna] small-tent Great for our set-up, couldn’t really improve. Its one of the best
Vaughan 5 Position and view was was amazing, access was enjoyably challenging and private. small-caravan 4WD only access, let the tyres down a little and it was fine. Turning around at the top was no problem unless you had a long caravan, which would make it a little more challenging. Its the best
Miranda Eade 5 Perfect, spacious, remote, beautiful 360 views, plenty of flat ground large-tent Nothing to improve Its the best
Grant 5 Amazing views, privacy, elevated, tiered camping areas allow for great camp set up, plenty of fire wood, nice breeze during warmer days – all in all a great spot! swag,small-tent,medium-tent having the campsite tiered was great, it allowed us to set up sleeping areas on the higher level & cooking/eating area on the lower tier with a camp fire zone in the middle. The toilet was far enough away to be private but not too far for the night time trips. Its better than most
anonymous 5 Completely private, didn’t even hear another campsite let alone see one. Up on a ridge with great views at sunset. large-tent Setup was easy with a large flat pad cut into the hill. The softer soil in that spot made it a good spot for a tent. Its better than most
