Set on the banks of Karuah River and surrounded by beautiful bushland, Tattersalls campground is a delightful riverside camping spot that will leave you feeling refreshed and revived.
Find a campsite and set up your tent, then enjoy bushwalking and birdwatching along the riverbank. Keep on the lookout for glossy black cockatoos feeding on the casuarina stands along the river’s edge.
This is also a great area to explore by water, so why not paddle in by kayak and canoe, or anchor your boat and enjoy a night sleeping under the stars? And with barbecues, campfires and picnic tables available, there are plenty of options to enjoy an outdoor dining experience. Try your luck fishing in the river and cook up your catch. Then snuggle up in your sleeping bag and let the gentle sounds of the river rock you into a peaceful sleep.
