Mount Royal National Park

Mt Royal National Park is a World Heritage-listed park and adjoins Barrington Tops National Park. It is 60 minutes’ drive from Singleton and takes you past the picturesque Lake St Clair - one of the best inland fishing hotspots in the region.

At Mt Royal you can enjoy a day’s drive, stopping at various picnic points or better still, pack up the kids and the camping gear and spend a night or two enjoying this rustic, bushland environment at the Youngville campsite (picnic area with bush camping) and explore the park by car or foot.

YOUNGVILLE PICNIC AREA

Camp at Youngville campsite then explore the World Heritage rainforests of Mount Royal National Park over a few days. Follow walking tracks and trails from here.

Try bush camping and stay overnight at Youngville campsite where you will get a chance to see some of the park’s many nocturnal birds and animals. So bring along your head torch and have a walk around your campsite after dinner to spot bandicoots, possums and gliders. Though the powerful, sooty, masked and barking owls – all proficient hunters – will probably see you before you see them. Look out at dusk and dawn for grazing pademelons and the threatened parma wallaby.The Mount Royal Road to Youngville Picnic Area is a gravel road suitable for two wheel drive vehicles.

All roads into the park are unsealed and visitors are advised to check conditions following rain, which can leave roads muddy and rough. Taking caravans into the park is not possible.   

Please note there are no marked sites. This is a remote bush camping site, so please make sure you arrive well-prepared.
