Newnes Campground

  • Unpowered Site

Welcome to Mother Nature’s amphitheater. Dramatic sandstone cliffs and proud eucalypt trees make for a majestic backdrop at this beautiful, grassy, flat campground by the Wolgan river.

Pitch your tent and enjoy a picnic under the trees before heading out to explore the tracks, tunnels, and ovens of the historic shale oil ruins nearby, or cool off with a paddle or lilo in the river. There are easy walks for taking in the dramatic scenery. Enjoy a fascinating journey back into the past on Newnes Industrial Ruins walk, and kids will love visiting the luminous Glow Worm tunnel, just a short drive away.

You can also camp on the other side of the river; however, you can only access this camping area by foot or 4WD across the ford near the Newnes Hotel.

There are no camping fees at this campground but a $6 booking fee applies.
