A beautiful and secluded spot, Rivermouth campground is an excellent stop over on a paddling adventure along Upper Myall River. Only accessed by walking, boat or kayak, it’s the perfect camping spot for adventurous types who’ll enjoy exploring the wilder remote areas of spectacular Bombah Broadwater, in Myall Lakes National Park.

Pull up in the kayak and you’ll feel like you’ve landed on a remote nature island. Pitch the tent in this scenic bush setting a short walk from the riverbank. You might hear the distinct call of the whistling kite, which makes its nest high in the she-oak branches.

As evening settles in, stoke up a campfire and cook up a well-earned feast. If you’re keen to check out the neighbours, grab a torch and look for brush-tailed possums and spotted-tail quolls. Finally, tumble into your sleeping bag and let the sounds of the river whisper you to sleep.
