With its large, grassy river flats shaded by casuarinas and protected by a rocky cliff, Silent Creek campground is popular with groups, especially 4WD clubs. Accessible only with a 4WD vehicle, it’s a great spot from where to explore the park’s fire trails that traverse eucalypt forests. Head north and you can give it some along the ridges.
During drought, Silent Creek can become dry, but you can walk along its banks to get to Abercrombie River, where there are plenty of deep waterholes for swimming and canoeing.
The warmer months are beautiful at Silent Creek. During spring, all the wildflowers start to bloom, including the yellow acacias. At dusk, the frogs start to call out. And you can nearly always spot some kangaroos and wallabies around the campground, as well as emus if you’re lucky.
