Multiple Locations

You can camp or go bushwalking in Salvator Rosa National Park and discover the trickling clear water of Mitchell Springs. Tambo's Wilderness Way is a 270 kilometres loop and you can take one to two days to complete, depending on the adventure you are after. The road is accessible by conventional vehicles, however, a four wheel drive is recommended. The road may become impassable in the wet, check accessibility and road conditions at the Tambo Visitor Information Centre prior to leaving and it is best to carry sufficient water and fuel.
