Hi Mat
The walk to the campsite is about of 2.3km from Waterfall train station, and less then 2km from the end of Warabin St. See this walk for notes (just the first bit)
http://www.wildwalks.com/bushwalking-and-hiking-in-nsw/heathcote-national-park/waterfall-to-heathcote.html
The track is wide enough to walk along with a pack on your pack. Not sure what camping gear you are thinking about carrying in, but have a a look at the first few photos in the walk (link above) and it should give you a sense of the walk.
Matt :)

Paul H - Creek Crossing IP:60.225.141.xxx | 2013-07-04 03:43:36
Please be aware that there is a creek to be crossed when heading in from Heathcoate via the Bullawarring Track.
When it has been raining heavily over the past few days this creek can run deep and fast. I am 6'3" 85kg and it was up to my waist and I was slipping trying to walk across. Not suitable for children.

Judging from the google maps photos, this creek is much smaller when it's been dry for a while.
