We have been there a few times. I really enjoyed camping Pole Blue camping area. I would avoid winter as it does snow up there. It is free, you can have a fire, there was hardly anyone there when we have been, and there is plenty of bush walking and 4wding. My brother in law caught a couple of trout in the river as well. You can go in through Scone or Gloucester. We prefer Gloucester, I think it is a bit shorter. Definitely worth a visit, but take some warm clothes for the nights.

We have also camped at Pole Blue for a few days a year or 2 back. Really enjoyed it. Good 4wd'ing in a number of tracks. Then went down to southern part of park to Telegraphy Point (I think it was called). It was a great spot, very quiet - only 1 other camper & they left after 1st night. Spent the evening being entertained by a possum with baby on its back. :grin:

We have just come back from Barrington Tops. We actually stayed in Chichester State forest which is adjacent to BT. We stayed at Frying Pan Creek. There are many places you can camp along the river. Plenty of wildlife. River crystal clear - quite cold still when we were there. Didnt stop the kids though! :)
Nothing like camping with four kids and a husband!

Most of the roads are open to 2 wheel drive. There are a couple that are 4 wheel drive.

There is heaps of info available on this park on the NPWS web site- you can print out a guide. :)

If you have a 4WD , Waterguage camping area off Gummi Trail is ok , Trout in the river as well .
If it rains heavy it could make for an interesting time climbing out to the main trail , some of our crew had camper trailers with us & that was fine in the dry !

That was the only time I've camped at Barrington Tops so far .
Will go back one day 8)
