Stoney Creek and Waterpark Creek are great day-trippers spots, or if you’re into camping National Parks has camping sites that are quite year round except for school holidays. Red Rock Campground offers caravan access with individual fire pits and tables at each site. This is our pick as generally no one is there and you have the creek all to yourself.
Water Park Creek is wide enough to paddle a few kilometres upstream. You’ll see, or maybe only hear, turtles and lizards jumping into the water or birds sunning themselves on fallen trees.
Byfield National Parks have some amazing tracks too. Tracks through Byfield State Forest provided for walking, cycling, mountain-bike riding, horse riding, trail biking and four-wheel-driving opportunities—but remember these are shared tracks. Check out National Parks site for more information on them. And we recommend reading the Byfield Visitors guide to make the most of your time. And don’t simply take our word for it. Watch these videos we found on Youtube.
