G'day. We're heading down to the Bendethera Valley for Easter. Just wondering if firwood is available at any of the camp sites. I've checked the Trek Notes but no mention is made of it. I'd be grateful for any feedback; also any other info about the area and campgrounds etc.

Thanks

Last time we were down there, someone had kindly left us a pile of wood, but being Easter I don't like your luck, it will be as busy as a caravan park!!!

Being a NP, I don't think that you are 'meant' to collect fire wood, but I am sure someone else will probably know, sorry I can't be more help!

Miss Goanna ,
It will be busy , but it is a huge huge area and if you nose around a bit you will find a spot away from the crowds . The valley is Klms long , and there are many side tracks as well .
I would be picking up wood on the firetrail on the way in ( although we found some when we were there , the competition at Easter will be heavy ) .
Cheers ,
Willie

Thanks for the advice. By the way, can you tell me how long the drive takes from Braidwood to Bendethera campground?

Steven ,
Are you going in from the West or the East ? From the East is the easy track and the one for CTs .

HI steve, was there last Easter & yes it will be busy, but there are plenty of good sites as the valley floor goes in a long way, even people that turned up on the Saturday still found good spots. The busiest areas will be the immediate areas around the pit toilets. There are some good one day drives around the Valley with some great scenery. A must to do while your there is the caves at the end of the valley, getting to the caves is a good walk, but take some nibblies & some water with you as the last part of the walking track to the caves is very steep. When in the caves you'll need a torch & a good sense of adventure, as the caves have not been comercialised i.e, no lighting, steep ladders, slippery floors, some narrow squeezes on your stomach. In all, a great spot & one that I want to get back to.
Regards, OM&M
