Information

National Parks visitors parking and camp-sites.Camp-sites in 2010 were $11 per car entry plus $7/head a night. Lots of room at beginning of season. Would be crowded in July. Unfortunately camp-site itself is also the base for a constantly operating group of helicopters. These provide taxi service to the fast tourist - but forget the serenity.
Water can be collected from nearby Mertons creek. Fires are allowed. Don't forget to collect firewood on the way in, there is a sign for the collection area. There are 2 camps, quiet and generator area. Both have composting dunnies and fire rings.

Walk 800m to nearest swimming hole then continue past art sites, Little and Big Mertons Falls, woodland, monsoon vine forest, rocky spinifex outcrops, paperbark lined waterhole and then the mighty Mitchell Falls after 3.5km. Best light for photos is an hour either side of noon

You must bring your own firewood. None is available at the campground. There are designated 'firewood collection' zones along the route but even better to collect quality timber earlier on ie; before starting on the Mitchell Falls Road.
