The Sink campground

Caravan, Camping and Holiday Parks

Load up the 4WD and set off on an adventure to The Sink campground. Pitch your tent or trailer beside Retreat River and spend a glorious few days bushwalking and swimming.

If you’re a wildlife fan, all you have to do is sit quietly and wait. Wallabies, kangaroos, and emus will rustle in the bushes and could spring out at any time. Make sure you look up too – 60 species of birds, including wedge-tailed eagles, can be spotted in these skies. Quiet, lucky visitors may also be rewarded with the sight of a platypus in the waterholes at dawn or dusk, a rare and special treat indeed.

This very tranquil spot among Argyle apple and tea trees is also a great place to recharge the batteries before heading out for some adrenaline-filled 4WDing, paddling on the river, or swimming in the Retreat River’s cool waters.
