This is a picturesque riverside camping and picnic area at Woko National Park, 30 km north of Gloucester heading toward Walcha. Fee apply. Before Woko became a national park, the area of Woko Campground was part of an extensive cattle property, cleared for livestock. The legacy of this is plenty of space – caravan sites and tents are easily accommodated here. Wake up to the comforting sounds of nature, with the endless gurgle of Manning River right alongside your site.
Families love this campground and it’s easy to understand why. As well as tables and free barbecues offering terrific picnicking opportunities, riverside camping means a chance to swim freely, or float along the current on a lilo. You can then stretch out on the grass to dry off in the warming sun. It’s hard to think of anything better on a summer’s afternoon, but if you’re interested in walking, bring the hiking boots – the short but enjoyable Brush Turkey track starts at the campground.
To get there: Along Thunderbolts Way from Gloucester, left onto Curricabark Rd, turn right onto road to the campground. Facilities: Gas/electric barbecues (free), wood barbecues (must bring your own firewood), picnic tables, non-flush toilets.
