    England Creek in D'aguilar National Park



    It's been a really warm winter around here so I've went out with my brother for an overnighter at a England Creek. It's a beautiful spot, a bit overgrown with lantana but plenty of native wildlife around the place including some good sized crayfish in the creek.

    Looks like a great spot, thanks. I usually head to Scrub Rd bush camp so maybe it's time to give England Creek a try

    Nice one. A favourite of mine is Northbrook mountain but I've walked the long way home through England Creek a couple if time.

    Question about the wood stove, are they allowed in D'Aguilar?

    Hi n5750547, You are not allowed to have open fires there so the wood stove which keeps the fire contained within the stove structure should be ok - and to be honest I don't think we'd use it again. I found the alcohol stove to be more efficient in terms of temperature control and cooking.

    We camp near Scrub Rd quite often. D'Aguilar is supposed to by no fires but every maintained campsite has a stone fire ring with grate...go figure.

    The professional bee keepers that have their hives in the National Park told us that fires are allowed despite the obvious "no fires" symbol on the camp sign and that Rangers have never said anything to them.

    Yeah I was always thought it was a bit strange. All the signs say "No Campfires" but at every remote campsite there is a well maintained campfire spot with seats around it.
