If you sit back at camp relaxing you’re eyes and ears may catch a sight of the huge variety of birds and native Australian animals that frequent the bush land that boarders the camping area.
During the day it’s the King parrots, currawongs, crimson or paleface Rosella’s and bellbirds that are a few you could encounter or maybe you’ll even spot the very elusive and well camouflaged koala sitting relaxing up in the gumtrees!
Then at dusk it’s the time when the nocturnal varieties appear….. the wallabies, bandicoots, owls and one that not to many people get to hear, the koalas! It’s at night when the male koala’s are most active, high up in the trees, producing their very eerie grunting and growing noise hoping to attract a female companion.
Or if you’d prefer to get out and about by vehicle, there’s so so many tracks and trails that meander throughout the Conondale National Park and Jimna State Forest.
You may choose to take Sunday Creek Road through to Kenilworth and the Mary Valley via Peters Creek and the famous Booloumba Creek falls. Visit the old gold mine on route and take in the magnificent subtropical rainforest as the track winds it way along. Whilst in Kenilworth why not visit the Kenilworth Dairy and cheese factory, Kenilworth Bakery, Hotel or another of the many eateries in town. Take a swim in Yabba Creek or the Mary river!
