You can camp or go bushwalking in Salvator Rosa National Park and discover the trickling clear water of Mitchell Springs.

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.
