Rainy Camping Adventure: Northbrook Mountain Bush Campsite & 24-Hour Ration Pack Review

Northbrook Mountain Bush Campsite

Everytime I head out for a camping trip it seems to rain, but I can’t complain. It also seems to make the trip so much more relaxing. This weekend I made the short uphill trek to the top of Northbrook Mountain to stay at the remote bush campsite located on the peak of the mountain.

The campsite is approx. 5km into the 28km hike I did in this National Park in the first week of February this year. Click here to view that video, which was also completed in rainy weather.

Luckily, I had the place to myself, apart from the 1.5m carpet python that slithered by around 7pm while I was making dinner. The mountain top was surrounded wildflowers and wet sclerophyll forest with panoramic views from both sides of the campsite.

In the future I am planning on creating some review videos for different hiking/adventure meals and snacks, as well as making some of my own ’24 ration packs’.

Northbrook Mountain Bush Campsite offers a unique and serene experience, even in the rain. Whether encountering wildlife, enjoying stunning views, or testing new ration packs, it remains a top choice for adventurers seeking a memorable camping trip.
