Camp | An activity that involves an overnight stay, usually in a tent.Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or long(Cancelled) Quite simply this is my favourite campsite in the entire Gardens of Stone NP as it is situated in an area of extreme beauty as well as having the advantage of a spectacular and pristine canyon nearby which gives us pure water and seemingly endless pagodas to explore, photograph and enjoy. The sunrises and sunsets from here have to be seen to be believed with wonderful views of Pantoneys Crown, Baal Bone ridge and far beyond. This will be a weekend to submerge yourself in the realm of the senses, relax with friends and emerge refreshed and energized! Rock scrambling.
