Escape the city lights and get back to basics at this quiet riverside campground. Surrounded by forest, it’s a picturesque spot for birdwatching with views across the river and not a soul in sight.
Enjoy 4WDing or cycling through the forest and admire the ironbarks, angophoras banksias and blackbutt trees along the way. Once you arrive, set up your tent, then it’s time to relax and recharge. Launch your canoe or kayak into the river and paddle off to explore. Take a walk in the forest, cast your fishing line into the river or just lie back and listen to the chorus of birds in the trees above.
As dusk sets in, keep your eyes out for swamp wallabies and ring-tailed and brush-tailed possums around the campsite. Then get ready for a peaceful night around the campfire and a bit of stargazing.
