General Information
There is a long walk into this campsite
There are a total of 6 campsites
This large, open campsite is found next to the Old Great North Road, at the top of the Simpson Track. The campsite is great for people walking or cycling in the area. There is a pit toilet, a few fire circles and plenty of places to pitch some tents. There is a water tank next to the toilet - if this is empty, there is sometimes water in Ten Mile Hollow Creek a short distance north along the OGNR (otherwise the Wat Buddha Dhamma, about 600m south along the OGNR, provides a water tank for visitors). Treat water before drinking. The area was formally a stockade (a camp) for the convicts who built the road in c.1830. Later the area was named 'Snodgrass Valley' and plans to build a town were developed, however neither the name nor the town proved popular (even at 2 pounds an acre)[1]. Solomon Wiseman (of Wisemans Ferry fame) was given 100 acres to build an inn, however it is not clear if the inn was ever built.

Park information


Dharug National Park Check for park closures and fire bans

Named after the traditional custodians (the Darug People), this park has much history and some great sandstone formations. The wildflowers in spring add a wonderful touch of colour to the bushland. The Old Great North Road including its quarries, bridges and other features improves access and provides a great deal of interest for visitors. Close to Sydney and Gosford, it feels like stepping back in time when visiting this park.

Cost to drive a car into the park (if you do not have a valid pass)

$0

Camping is available in the park

$0 to $5

Public toilets are available in the park

Hi Karen
more like 10km. You can ride a mountain bike in or walk in along the old great north road. From Dubbo Gully

these are the Dubbo Gully Notes
