We went up to Platypus Flat near Dorrigo
about a month ago. Four lots of us traveled about 420 odd km's one Sunday
Went from Grafton
At 8.00am to Nymboida
up to Black Mountain, through Wild Cattle Creek State Forest to Platypus Flat. Had lunch there and then went on to the Cod Hole. Back through Cascade, Ulong, Timber Top, Glenreagh and back to Grafton
Took about 11 hours all up. Wished we had more time. It was a bit rushed.
Platypus Flat is National park and has camp sites for tents & has toilets.
We will go back and spend a weekend there soon it is a beautiful spot
. You won't be disappointed.
There are a couple of Pics in My Gallery.
Hope this helps Barbara.

Just thought of another spot
Rummery Park Camping Ground. A two k walk from Minion Falls.In the Whian Whian State forest
I haven't been there for quite a few years.
Rummery Park Camping Ground
Use to go there a lot. There use to be endless 4wd tracks through the back of Huonbrook down the Wilsons creek to Mullumbimby.
Just another idea.

that area around Wild Cattle Creek/Cod Hole etc, are there any decent camping spots around there?
We like to take our little hound and so are limited to State Forests
had about 2/3 hours around there earlier this year but didn't have enough time to have a good look.

I believe the Cod Hole to be State Forest. Going by the maps I have.
There seem to be a make shift shade cloth area erected there and well used.
It is where the Rafters launch into the river.
I wish we had spent more time up there. Maybe after winter, the cook
does not like the cold. :(
We'll go back there one day soon.

cheers mate - I'll have a look at that next time we're up there.
Liked what I saw but didn't have time to do it justice
