Rellies have suggested that we visit Abercrombie NP, etc, with them and that we should camp there and do some of the 4wd drive tracks in that area. They don't know all that much about the area, but have been told that it is good. Is there a camping area there that we can get our caravan (offroad) into and would it be safe to leave it there while doing one of the tracks? We dont normally leave the van in free camps (want it to be there when we get back!!) but can't find much info about the camps in that area.
Many thanks
Jules

No way would you get a caravan in their even in the dry. Go and have a look first and swag it or take a tent. Also watch out for feral humans.

Hi thephantom
As Madfisher (Pete) said no way would you get a caravan in there.

What you could do is set up camp at Mt Werong Mt Werong

And tour Abercrombie from here, I have done just this as one of my profile pictures testify.
Cheers Colin.

You could stay at "Boyd river camp ground" in the Kanangra Boyd NP if it's not to far from the places that you want to see, we had a few days there towards the end of last year and found it realy good. You can access it by car on a good dirt road, the camp ground has lot's of camp sites with a big hut including tank water and some tables and bench style chairs. there are also two lots of long drop toilets and heaps of fire rings for your bbq's.

If you do stay there the road to Dingo Dell camp ground has a good 4wd track to it, worth a look.

On the safety side of things we had no hesitation in leaving our tent setup while away sightseeing.

Highly recomended

H Jules

When was you thinking of going? We are thinking of getting back in the april school holidays as we have some half price tickets for the Jonolan caves left over from our previous trip. The caves are only about 30 ks from Boyd river camp ground

Hi Trev
We are possibly going to be there sometime in March-dates not finalised yet. Haven't been to Jenolan Caves since our honeymoon-some 36 years ago-wouldn't mind going back to see what its like now. Didn't realise that the Caves were only 30km from the camp ground. Thanks for that. Hope you enjoy the April school hols there too.

I'm not sure about the parks other than Kanangra, but I'd be reluctant to tow to Dingo Dell as the river crossing heading into it from Kanangra Walls was deep and flowing fast when we were there a few weeks ago. We were travelling alone so didn't attempt it (we were coming from the Dingo Dell side). The 4WD track itself is a good low-range drive and the scenery is gorgeous!

Thanks for that Amy. I think we will just be doing the track to Dingo Dell in the cruiser, not planning to take the van. Never having been to this area we are looking forward to the scenery very much-the rellies say it is well and truly worth the effort and are thinking of joining us in March when we do this trip.
Cheers
