Junction Pools campground

Caravan, Camping and Holiday Parks

If you yearn to camp under the stars and enjoy a remote wilderness experience, load up the 4WD and head to Junction Pools campground. High in the pristine wilderness of the plateau country within Barrington Tops National Park, between Scone and Gloucester, you’ll experience the unique landscape of sub-alpine wetlands that hark back to the last ice age.

While this remote region houses many unique species, you’re more likely to see eastern grey kangaroos, wombats, and swamp wallabies grazing the grasslands and open forests of the plateau country. Swim the cool, clear mountain streams, try your hand at trout fishing or hike along the Aeroplane Hill walking track. When night settles in, cook up the catch of the day over a campfire and soak up the sounds of the bush.

Take a virtual tour of Junction Pools campground captured with Google Street View Trekker.
