Ingar Campground, Wentworth Falls

Ingar_1

Ingar Campground in Wentworth Falls is adjacent to a very large waterhole that attracts both the camping crowd and day-trippers.

The advantage of this swimming hole is you can drive straight to the pool – no laborious walk in our out – though it is a 10-minute drive down a bumpy dirt road. Other pluses include shaded picnic tables nearby and a kid-friendly shallow area with a sandy base (no slipping over!).

Picnic tables make this waterhole a convenient place for lunch.

This natural pool is large enough for lilos and kayaks, and there’s even a little trickling waterfall providing peaceful background sounds.

TIP: If you want to work up a sweat before taking a dip, there’s a track leading off from the side of the waterhole that takes you up to a great lookout.

DETAILS:

Getting there: From Tableland Road in Wentworth Falls, turn left onto Queen Elizabeth Drive. This turns into Ingar Fire Trail – a dirt road. Drive along Ingar Fire Trail for 10 minutes until you reach the campground.

Parking: Parking is available at the campground.

Distance: The waterhole is situated next to the parking area/campground.

Camping: There are nine campsites at Ingar Campground.
