With the coronavirus upon us, it is a good idea to spend time outdoors for activities, particularly family activities, rather than indoors (except, of course, if you prefer to sit on the couch in the comfort of your own home).



Camping is a fun outdoor activity. Going to a caravan park would be good, but caravan parks get crowded easily. An even better idea then is to go camping elsewhere, away from the crowds, and New South Wales has plenty of campgrounds in beautiful national parks. One of these is the Coorongooba campground in Glen Davis NSW.

The campground, which is surrounded by beautiful escarpments and the bushes of the Wollemi National Park, is nestled in the Capertee Valley, noted to be the world's largest enclosed valley. It sits beside the Capertee River , which offers fun and adventure for kids. The water in the river is usually just wading depth, although some parts have rapids.

To get there from Lithgow, turn right to Glen Davis Road from Castlereagh Highway at Capertee. Drive for 34 kilometres and turn left to Goora Street at Glen Davis. If you set your GPS to Coorongooba Campground, it will take you to a path that passes through Glen Davis Works, which is private property and is gated. At the end of Goora Street, turn right to Nioka Street and follow the road (and the signs) to the campground. Note that these are unsealed roads, and while a 4WD vehicle is recommended, it is not required. There is a point where the road crosses the Capertee River, so be mindful of the water after or when it is raining.

There is a mobile toilet dump and a dropdown toilet in Coorongooba, but there is no water, no mobile reception, no power outlets, no rubbish bins, no designated parking and no designated tent spots. Just choose the perfect location for you, whether you are setting up a tent or you are bringing a caravan.

Do not forget, bring your own rubbish with you when you leave.
