Things to know
The Middle Kobble Remote Bush Camp is accessible by walk-in only, and reaching it involves a steep 350-meter uphill hike on the return journey, making it suitable for those with a high level of physical fitness. Middle Kobble remote bush camp is situated in an open, grassy area next to Kobble Creek, providing a picturesque natural setting. There are no separately-defined campsite areas, but the site can accommodate a maximum of 9 people (equivalent to 3 three-person tents) at one time. The campsite surface is made of dirt and grass. Facilities at the campsite are limited, so visitors must follow bush toileting practices. Open fires are permitted in the provided fireplace, but it's important to check for any fire bans or prohibitions before starting a fire. Do not collect bushwood, as penalties may apply. Generators are not permitted in this remote campsite. Visitors should bring their own drinking water, as Kobble Creek is often dry. If creek water is available, it should be treated before use. A first-aid kit, rubbish bags, insect repellent, and a fuel stove are essential items to bring. Sturdy shoes and appropriate clothing are necessary for the steep and sometimes challenging terrain. Mobile phone coverage in the area is unreliable, so it's advisable to plan accordingly.
The journey to the camp takes you through open eucalypt forest, where you can admire colorful bottlebrush blooms along the creek. Keep an eye out for Lepidozamia, large cycad plants with spiny leaves and spiked cones, which give the landscape a prehistoric touch. A short walk from the campsite leads to the top of Kobble Creek waterfall, where you can quietly observe skinks and keelback snakes basking on the rocks.
