[TR] Turon National Park

[TR] Turon National Park

Postby bockstar » Fri Apr 30, 2010 11:15 pm

Hi there folks

Follow up report to one I did about this time last year.

For the Anzac Weekend we spent a nice couple of days at Turon National Park. The park is located to the west of the Castlereagh Highway, which runs from Lithgow up to Mudgee.

The park boasts 2 offical campgrounds - The Diggings and Woolshed Flat - although there are number of other areas that would be great spots for a night or 2. The Diggings has a pit toilet but the Woolshed doesn't. Access would be difficult for a sedan as there are a couple of steep sections that turn muddy with rain plus a creek crossing. Doable in a softroader. The Diggings are located right on the Turon River.

It really is a beautiful spot and at this time of year, a really special place.
