Burralow Creek campground and picnic area
Burralow Creek campground and picnic area is nestled beside Burralow Creek, in the Lower Grose Valley area of Blue Mountains National Park. Set up camp on the grass, surrounded by native scribbly gums and a natural sandstone amphitheatre.
This peaceful spot is popular with families and groups of friends looking for a remote bush escape close to Sydney. There's plenty of space for the kids to roam free.
From your tent, take an easy bush walk past a convict-dug pit, along the creek and through a small rainforest gully to Bulcamatta Falls. The nearby Burralow peat swamps provide habitat for the nationally endangered giant dragonfly in summer, and keen birdwatchers should keep an eye out for the rare glossy black cockatoo.
Cook up a barbecue feast for dinner and see if you can spot the nightlife, including swamp wallabies, sugar gliders, brush tail and ring tail possums, and several species of owl. Then settle in and watch the night sky fill with stars.
