My experience with Barrington, is its COLD :lol:

But I stayed on the western side on private property. Good luck

There is the Gloucester (?) river, that runs around there, if you can find it on a map.

Hello there.
There is a spot called Jims Place. As you head out of Gloucester towards Barrington Tops you go up a steep hill approx 2km long. Then it turns into a dirt rd. On the dirt rd you will drive through Jims Place (can't miss it).
Gloucester & Barrington rivers join at this camping spot. There is masive amount of space to camp & is absolutly beautiful. It is a little warmer then Barrington Tops.

Hope this helps. Any more info needed just ask.

Can you still drive up to Gloucester Tops. Back many moons ago we used to catch rainbow trout up there.
