Darlington Park Camping Area

Darlington Park is a beautiful part of the world. We decided to go camping with a group of campers. Originally, I wanted to set up camp between the playground and the creek, but once we arrived, I realised everyone else had the same idea. As there were a number of campers, we decided to set up camp at the far end, not far from the toilets.

Beautiful scenic countryside, and a creek to play in, it was absolutely beautiful to wake up to. The horses were nearby, with their foals. You were able to watch the farmer herd the horses to drink in the creek.

We found a small creek, which had lots of river rocks to play on. The water increased in depth which allowed us to use the kayak. Further down the creek, was a tree swing. The kids waded to the far side, and swung off the tree swing, splashing into the water.

Camping fees were very reasonable - $20 per family per night in peak season. They consider a family 2 adults, and 4 children, so if you don't have enough children, it is a great place to take the kids friends as well. As it was peak season, there wasn't a requirement to book for a week, as some places do. We stayed for 2 nights only.

There are no showers, so it is BYO water and portable shower, if you ever get a chance to get out of the creek. Lovely clean facilities, and electric BBQs to use close to the playground
