Who would have thought you could be so close to the city and yet so far from civilisation? Uloola Falls campground in Royal National Park is a great nature getaway, especially if you're looking for things to do near Sydney.
For a relaxing start to your weekend escape, catch the train. Don't forget your hiking boots because this campground is reached via the long Uloola walking track or the medium difficulty Karloo walking track. If you're particularly adventurous, you can cycle there on your mountain bike from Waterfall.
Passing through heathlands, you'll be bathed in colour by the wildflower displays in spring. Keep an eye out for the gymea lily with its single stem and vibrant red flower.
Once you arrive, set up camp beside picturesque Uloola Falls and sleep under the stars.
