  1. Apparently this site is often booked out for school groups – though there are two dedicated sites for walkers. A good alternative site is Jacks Paddock, only about 500m off the trail and maybe 4km before Chookarloo when heading north.

  2. Dropped in here to pick up water in early May 2012. Facilities are good with large water tank, shelter, and toilet.

    Camp sites looked ok. While I was there I noticed a lot of vehicle traffic around the campsites, possibly because the site is close to the main road.
