Looking for somewhere well away from everyone else to take the family for a few days break? The Beach – not surprisingly, given the name – is a campground on a stretch of sand by the water. Shaded by casuarinas, it’s sheltered by a wall of rock deep in the valley.
It’s a short stroll upstream from the campground to a deep waterhole that’s great for swimming. Take the opportunity while you’re here to explore Abercrombie River National Park in your 4WD or bring your mountain bike if you’re feeling energetic – the fire trails are rarely used, so are perfect for keen cyclists.
Wallabies and kangaroos are often seen hanging around The Beach and, although sightings are never guaranteed, platypuses live in waterholes along the river. They’re best spotted either as the sun rises or sets.
