Things to know
The nearest vehicle access is via Lookout Road, starting from the Goomburra camping area to Sylvesters Lookout walking track. Please note that access is only suitable for high clearance 2WD vehicles in dry weather, and the road is locked during wet weather conditions. The campsite is designed for self-sufficient, walk-in camping, with a maximum capacity of 8 people. Campers will find a grassy surface for pitching tents. There are no facilities at the campsite, so campers must be entirely self-sufficient. Please note that the creek is often dry, so water collected from creeks should be treated before drinking.
All rubbish, including food scraps, must be carried out to protect the environment. Bush toileting should be conducted at least 100 meters away from the creek. Open fires are strictly prohibited. Campers should use fuel stoves for cooking. Generator use is not allowed to preserve the tranquility of the area. Be sure to bring ample drinking water, extra food, and a well-stocked first-aid kit. Other essential items include a topographic map, compass, torch, warm clothing, wet weather gear, rubbish bags, insect repellent, and a fuel or gas stove for cooking. Mobile phone coverage in the area is poor, so campers should not rely on their phones for communication.
This area is known for its stunning pink-hued trachyte cliffs of Mount Castle, which are especially beautiful during sunrise. To the east of the camping area, the forest thins out, allowing for breathtaking views of Mount Castle, the Little Liverpool Range, Laidley and Fassifern valleys, and even Brisbane in the distance. The campsite is situated in an open forest site adjacent to the headwaters of Laidley Creek, offering a serene natural environment.
