Leave the caravan at a coastal caravan park, park some light weight camping gear and take Bucketts Way through Gloucester for what is a steep, scenic drive up to the ‘Tops.’
This is a World Heritage Park covering 74,000 acres of bushland, with nature camping and well marked walking trails.
"Ladies Well" can be found in the breathtaking Barrington Tops NSW.
It is an mazing place, and it has to be one of the most beautiful rain forest areas in Australia. When I visited in July 2013 there was free camping here.
It's the journey that matters, not the destination.
There was plenty of fresh water and unspoiled countryside when Visited "The Tops."
You will discover "Boot Hill" along the way. This is hundreds of thongs, boots, sandals, water shoes, joggers, pairs, singles, you name it, tied to a fence. Your car will get filthy, the road curves will try you, and you will reach Ladies Well via Allyn River Road.
This was a free camping ground in 2013. Check with the National Parks services for current fees. Back then, there were some bins and a drop toilet. The old fashioned 'drop box.' hole in the ground with a seat over it. I'd be happy to pay a camping fee for improved toilet facilities. But, what a beautiful environment to camp.
Every city needs a quiet haven, and Newcastle has the Barrington Tops only two hours away.
