Barrington SF - Manning River


We camped at Manning River in Barrington State Forest last weekend. Really nice spot. Quite dry at the time so no leeches. Drop toilet has seen better days but does the job if you're desperate. The river is freezing cold but really pretty.
Only thing to be careful of is takings your dog. If you see red tape on trees anywhere in the area it means they have laid dog poison. Whilst they won't lay it in the camp ground there is a chance that birds could move it. A group camping on the river edge lost their dog on saturday night and they think it was due to 1080. So just be careful.

Re:


Why would they put dog poison in the bush? sorry just curious....

Is the area known for stray dogs over-population or something?

Re: Barrington SF - Manning River


1080 dog baits are used in almost every national park and state forest in NSW as well as heaps of private properties (particularly sheep properties) to control foxes and wild dogs/dingos. They are not meant to bait at camp grounds but occasionally birds pick them up and they could be dropped anywhere. It's bloody horrible stuff. Dogs go crazy and can't stop running and eventually suffer heart failure, seizures and foaming at the mouth, then fall into a coma and die.
