Here's a big thumbs up to National Parks for the camp site we stayed in last Saturday night.

Gambell's Rest, just south of Bundanoon in Morton NP. Camp kitchen with BBQ's, hot showers and flush dunnies. The wife was impressed!

Plenty of bushwalks (Glow Worm Glen at night was wonderful...) and terrific cycling for the kids. Level campsites perfect for the camper trailer.

No open fires is a shame as the weather was a but nippy but otherwise recommended. I've added it to Places.

Good to hear things have improved. Last time I was there the toilet block was disgusting, showers were cold, there was no camp kitchen or BBQs .... and typical of that part of the world - it was freezing cold!

Nice spot though - for us a good stopover between Sydney and Canberra. And from memory the bakery was particularly good.

There is a short walk, which starts at the lookdown, and goes down under the cliff to an old Coal mine. It is very steep but worth the effort. They did it tough in the old days.
b4 you bag me out, walk a mile in my shoes, then your a mile away and have my shoes :)

That's the Erith Coal Mine walk. Bit steep for the kids though.

Fees are $10/adult, $5 per child, bookable thru NPWS Office at Fitzroy Falls 02 4887 7270.

Also need a parks entry pass but most of you lot would have that anyway...
