Cobboboonee National Park reviews
I have heard about this park which is home for threatened bird and animal species such as the Powerful Owl, Spot-tailed Quoll and Southern Brown Bandicoot. It was a great pleasure to be there. more »

This place is seriously cool. Free camping and maintained in a lovely manner. It has drop loos and some spots they will even have wood for your bbq waiting. (If your lucky, not all bbqs had this. Maybe other campers indulged) it's a bush camp.. We stayed at jackass gully which you can take your horse too which I think is unique. And there is a lovely walk near by just watch out for the leaches.. We went in summer -December. Will definitely go again
Such a shame that the sustainable forestry once conducted here is no more. Also sad to see that limestone is now the chosen roading material. Odd that conservationists would prefer foreign material being carted in for roading instead of local endemic material.
