If youre looking for a peaceful riverside setting, set up camp at Kookibitta campground in Kwiambal National Park. You can pitch your tent beside one of the picnic tables on the grassy terrace, or closer to the river for an authentic bush camping experience.
Junction walkis a relaxing bushwalk that starts at the campground. It follows the Severn River past picnic areas and small beaches to the junction with the McIntyre River. Enjoy swimming and fishing, then continue to Dungeon lookout, where youll have views over the steep river gorge and canopy of white cypress pines.
After lunch, grab your binoculars and go birdwatching. Youll see speckled warblers and thornbills by the river, as well the stunning turquoise feathers of the sacred kingfisher. At dusk, brush tailed possums and squirrel gliders dart among the river oaks. If youre lucky, youll spot a small southern boobook owlperched on nearby branch.
