Dunns Swamp

Just 25 kilometres east of Rylstone and Kandos is Dunns Swamp, a popular camping and picnic area. Set on the banks of the Cudgegong River and nestled amongst the stunning sandstone pagoda rock formations. Dunns Swamp enjoys an outstanding biodiversity of plan and animal communities with at least 107 bird species spotted in the area.

A network of walking tracks surrounds the waterway, including one suitable for wheelchairs and strollers. Opportunities for canoeing and swimming also make this a 'must visit' destination. Camping fees apply.

Take to the water by embarking on a guided kayak tour or by hiring a kayak or paddle board from Southern Cross Kayaking. They are based here during the warmer months from the end of Spring through to Autumn, during school holidays and long weekends.
