Enjoy the peace and ambience of whistling bellbirds, running water and tall, shady eucalypts at this lovely camping and picnic area in a quiet gully on Wheeny creek.
If you have just a day to play with, visit Lyrebird for lunch under the trees; or set up your campsite on the grassy terraces by the river and settle in for a relaxing break at Kingfisher, Boobook or Cheese Tree camping areas within Wheeny creek campground.
Wheeny Creek is near enough to Sydney and Newcastle that it makes an idyllic retreat for families and friends, for a daytrip or a weekend getaway, plus, camping here is totally free. This campground is popular during holiday periods and long weekends, and sites may not be readily available
