Dunphy’s Camping Area: Free Camping Blue Mountains

Though isolated, Dunphy’s camping area is well-maintained. It is an open grassy area with spectacular views over the escarpment (great for sunsets!) and is sprinkled with shady eucalypts. Campsight writes that it is 4WD accessible only because Megalong Road becomes gravel and is quite steep in parts. However, Explore Australia and other websites indicate that it is suitable for 2WD, caravan and camper van access. If in doubt, call the Blackheath National Park and Wildlife Services on (02) 4787 8877.

Tracks lead off to the Wild Dog Mountains, Iron Pot Mountain, the Six Foot Walking Track, the Coxs River and beyond.

Location: Near Narrow Neck.

  • Pit toilets
