Visitors to the beautiful Douglas-Apsley National Park have a choice of three sites for bush camping.
The Apsley Waterhole site at the south end of the park has no vehicle access but is an easy ten-minute walk from the carpark. This is a pleasant, shaded spot, well-situated for taking a leisurely swim in the waterhole. There are composting toilets nearby.
The two sites on the banks of the Douglas River – at Heritage and Tevelein Falls – are more remote, do not have toilets and mainly used by park visitors who are doing multi-day walks. Both sites are reached by walking along the Leeaberra track from the north of the park.
The Heritage Falls site is tucked high on the bank above the Douglas River. Sheltered by a canopy of tall trees, there are several lounging logs for sitting on or against.
The Tevelein Falls site, further south, is also nestled on the bank above the river. It has direct river views, and cleared communal eating areas.
Campers will need to bring their own food, water, tent and fuel stove. No booking necessary.
