Here’s a great little campground we had not heard anyone tell us about – budget priced and it comes with an interesting name and a hike to dizzying heights.
Cathedral Rock National Park can be accessed west of Ebor, New South Wales. South via The Waterfall Way, an 8 km dirt road will take you to Barokee Campground, closer to Cathedral Rock itself. Instead, we travelled north on the Ebor Road, just 200m from the highway and arrived at Native Dog Campground.
You can hear traffic, but there wasn’t much on this road overnight when we visited, and the campground is lovely.
Sites are spaced out well, with bush between the road around it.
Plenty of firewood is provided.
This is a terrific spot for birdwatchers as birds chorused around us. A wallaby visited, too.
Facilities were great, the toilets looked new.
As the elevation is high, nights are cool in summer, and cold in winter.
You can hike the Warrigal trek, a pretty 1km trail and creek, with dramatic boulders everywhere. Note: Warrigal means native dog or dingo.
I loved to read the signs about wildflowers – we spotted a lot.
We did it then joined the longer track to Woolpack Rocks – tough but oh so worthy!
We really enjoyed our camp and hike here! Do you know, we had all of it to ourselves? Not another soul, not even a native dog!
