Touring Border Ranges National Park, NSW
Date Posted:13 June 2018
There is a reasonably good gravel road when you follow the Tweed Ranges Road and this leads all the way around the scenic loop which is on the Eastern side of the park close to the Qld – NSW border. It is approximately 44 km long and will come out about 28 km’s from Kyogle. Both the loop and the campgrounds are 2WD accessible in dry weather. Caravans should not go through the loop road due to the narrowness and steepness at a few different points but you can very easily access Sheepstation Campground from the Kyogle side.
There are 2 campgrounds in the national park.
Forest Tops Campground is about half way around the loop. There are only 10 campsites at this lovely grassy spot. It is bollarded so and you cannot park your car next to your campsite. Alas, only suitable for tents and campers who are travelling light. From here you can try a short trip along Booyong walking track or walk the entire track – it finishes at Sheepstation Creek campground.
- Sheepstation Campground is on the Kyogle side just at the entry to the park. There are 40 campsites - tent, camper or caravans are all welcome here. Be sure to enjoy a walk on one of the three tracks that leave from this campground – the easy Palm Forest walk is a great one for children while the Rosewood loop and the Booyong loop are longer day walks.
Both campgrounds have:
- Composting toilets
- Free Barbeques
- Picnic tables
- Campfires are permitted in the wood BBQ's provided. You will need to take your own firewood.
- NO drinking water, so you will need to take your own (there is non-potable water available only)
- NO rubbish bins are not provided, so you will need to take your rubbish home
Collecting of firewood in NSW National Parks is prohibited so don’t forget to take your own.
