    My major seasonal favourites are:
    - Summer - Green Patch
    - Winter - Colo River

    In Autumn and Spring I like to go to the Blue Mountains because the air is crisp and clear and the bushwalking is stunning. about 6 years ago

    Whilst Green patch is awesome, especially for kids and fishing, it's also about 3 hrs drive.

    Within 2 hours of Sydney, try the Euroka Clearing in the Blue Mountains National Park near Glenbrook.
    Or Wheeny Creek, about 30 minutes beyond Windsor. Both places have toilets and allow fires but no other facilities, however there are swimming holes/creeks to splash around in. If you're going soon (I.e. late autumn or winter) do take good fleeces, beanies etc as it's cold at nights. Also, check the National Parks website for each campsite to see if you need to bring your own firewood in. I've been both places with my 1 and 6 year old and it was great. about 6 years ago

    Another fun option with kids - and especially good for first time campers - is The Basin campground in Kuringai National Park. You can either walk down from the road (a bit far with a 4yr old and a load of camp gear!) ... Or take the ferry from Palm Beach. We had our gear on a small trolley so it was really easy to get it on/off the boat with kids.

    Glenworth valley, about 1-1.5 hours north of Sydney, near Peats Ridge. Great campsite with toilets and hot water showers. You can also trail ride, quad bike, kayak. It's awesome.

    I just spent the weekend at Bundeena in the Bonnie Vale campground. It's part of the national park, hot showers + loos, swimming, beach and boat ramp... But no fires. Great for the kids and easy access to the village to restock supplies. It feels quite urban for a campground, but hey, that's what you get for less than 60 mins from home! Great place for 'easy' camping over 5 years ago

    How long did it take you to travel to GreenPatch from sydney?
    I was wanting to go one weekend, head there on a friday after work from Sydney City. Would this be possible do you think? over 5 years ago

    Charlotte - Green Patch is about 3 Hours from Sydney. slightly less if you get a good run and possibly a lot longer if you get stuck in Friday night traffic.
    My advice... don't leave after work, leave by about 3pm and you'll be there to put up your tent before it gets dark. And... don't forget to book in advance! Some weekends, it;'s totally booked out. over 5 years ago
