Things to know
Sundown Remote Bush Camp can be reached by high clearance 4WD vehicles or through walk-in access, making it a suitable destination for both vehicle-based and adventurous hikers. This rustic campground allows campfires (subject to conditions), and it's ideal for tent camping. You'll find no designated sites, fostering a true back-to-nature experience. Since this is a remote camping area with no facilities, visitors should come prepared with drinking water, rubbish bags (as there are no bins provided), fuel or gas stoves, insect repellent, warm clothing and bedding, a first-aid kit, a compass, and topographic maps. Mobile phone coverage in this area is limited, so it's essential to be self-sufficient and prepared for remote conditions. Bushwalkers should inform park rangers of their intended route and expected return time for safety purposes. Additionally, it's advisable to share your plans with a friend or family member before embarking on your adventure. This ensures that someone knows your whereabouts in case of emergencies.
The campsite offers numerous activities such as walking, swimming in peaceful waterholes, fishing, and exploring the cultural and historic sites of Sundown National Park. The rugged terrain offers ample opportunities for hiking, including multi-day excursions into side creeks, gorges, and challenging mountain ranges. The park is renowned for its stunning landscapes, including steep-sided gorges adorned with king orchids, river red gums, and vibrant wildflowers in spring. At night, the skies come alive with stars, providing a celestial canopy for your wilderness retreat. Keep an eye out for the park's diverse wildlife, including wallaroos, grey kangaroos, red-necked and swamp wallabies, marsupial mice, gliders, and possums. Sundown National Park is a haven for nature enthusiasts.
