Territorians and visitors have access to twelve additional campsites in a brand new campground out at Judbarra National Park.
The recently constructed Lupayi campground is located 47 kilometres from the Victoria Highway, at the start of Jasper Gorge.
The site offers scenic views of the Gorge and plenty of activities including fishing, bushwalking and birdwatching.
The campground is accessible for two-wheel-drive vehicles and caravans in the dry season, and four-wheel-drive vehicles year round.
Wheel-chair accessible toilets have also been constructed at the campground.
The $100,000 project provided jobs for 15 jobs for Territorians during construction, through employing local contractors.
Judbarra National Park attracts around 35,000 people each year.
