Love kangaroos, campfires, towering rock faces and sunsets that blow your mind? Then Newnes Campground is the place for you.
Newnes Campground really is (as the sign at the entryway states) everything money can’t buy. Deep in the NSW Wollemi National Park, just outside of Lithgow, Newnes Campground is a hidden (and free) gem.
There are a couple of loos and loads of fire pits, but no running water or trash facilities. Bring all you need in and pack it all back out.
Multiple hikes leave from the campground to explore the surrounding Wollemi National Park. The Glow Worm Tunnel trail is also close by, one of NSW’s most popular day hikes. So there is plenty to do to tire yourself out in the day, and then stare at the stars whilst next to the fire during the night.
It’s a beauty, and one we won’t be forgetting anytime soon.
Note: At the time we visited (June 1, 2020) all hikes surrounding were closed due to the recent fires. It was also necessary to book online on the NSW NPS website so that they can manage numbers due to COVID-19.
