Visit Minyon Falls and Rummery Park Camping Grounds, Nightcap National Park, New South Wales

My brother and his family had an interesting adventure at Minyon Falls, near Lismore in northern New South Wales!

Make sure you visit the lookout. Check out the 100m falls where Repentance Creek flows into the valley below. The cliffs were part of Tweed’s volcano. 

There is a picnic area here – but if you are keen to camp – set up at Rummery Park campground. You can actually walk from the campground to the base of the falls. 

The 4km (return) Boggy Creek walk takes you through Whian Whian State Conservation Area. Kids will love swimming in the pools along the way. 

The shady campground has toilets, BBQs, firepits and picnic tables.  BYO firewood and no pets or Big Rigs.

Visit Nightcap National Park after rain -sometimes these falls can be dry (despite the park receiving the highest annual rainfall in NSW).  

The campground is also home to kookaburras, koalas, possums, lorikeets and goannas.

Maybe try to avoid the hail! It was huge! 

Access this campsite via a 7km narrow, winding dirt road. There are more scenic drives close by.
