Camping area features
The Bull Crossing campsite is a shady site nestled amongst a grove of paperbarks and eucalypts along the Mitchell River providing a setting suitable for sitting and relaxing while trying catch a fish from the bank amongst the numerous snags.
For the enthusiast with a boat, the site offers access up and down stream, however this is dependent on river flows and the tide as the water in the area can get quite shallow.
