During the 1940s, Watagan Headquarters was the site of a camp for workers constructing forest roads. It was later used as a camp barracks for maintenance crews who were trucked into the forest on Monday morning and out again on Saturday morning. The headquarters is on the route of the Great North Walk, a 250 kilometre walking track from Sydney to Newcastle. The camping area is open and grassed, surrounded by native forest and blue leaved stringybark plantations.
How to get there:
We will be leaving in the morning on Sat. I will be driving, some of the men will be going on their motorbikes. You can drive up any time you want and meet us there. We will be staying one night and leaving on Sunday. There is heaps to check out in the park, views etc. :)
