Deep in the Wollemi wilderness is a peaceful valley where you can spend your days hiking, mountain biking and 4WDing. The remote location and rough dirt trails, off Putty Road, make this campground a favourite getaway for 4WD and motorcycle clubs.

Getting there is part of the adventure, with trails offering spectacular views. To the west look for Mount Monundilla, to the east Wareng (Little Yengo) and the dormant volcanic peak of Mount Yengo, which has Aboriginal cultural significance.

The campground is named after Sheepskin Hut and Tack Shed, first built in the late 1800's by drovers who grazed cattle in the area, then rebuilt in the 1920's.

Pitch your tent in the grassy area next to the hut. There's also an area suitable for larger groups around 200 metres away. The campground is surrounded by thick eucalypt forest of mountain blue gum and rough barked apple that slopes towards Doyles Creek.

The area is brimming with wildlife, from kangaroos that bound through the bushland to gang-gang and glossy black cockatoos that you'll hear screeching in the treetops above.
