Bai-Yai is a 480 acre partly Conservation Covenanted property, 70 minutes south-west of Armidale & 70 minutes north-west of Tamworth. On the tablelands 700 metres above sea level, next door to Warrabah National Park. Our northern boundary is the Macdonald river, just before it drops westward through the gorges & changes its name to the Namoi. We're for the nature-lover who enjoys peace & quiet away from crowds, who values birdsong above the hum of cars & generators! Our facilities are simple but comfortable, all off-grid. There's a covered platform kitchen area overlooking some of the great river swimming spots for campers to enjoy, a pit toilet, simple shower, & fresh drinking water supplied daily. The owners house is out of sight but within coo-ee if needed. The river & general wildness of terrain make Bai-Yai camping not really suitable for young children who requite 24/7 supervision for their safety. CRITICAL: Please ensure your personal profile is completed including a photo before submitting a booking request.

Bai-Yai River-Rock Hideaway Camping
So worth it!
Perfect place to get away from it all over Easter. It’s a very beautiful and peaceful spot. We appreciated being the only family booked in so we could really enjoy our time together. Our boys had a ball kayaking, rock hopping and cooking damper. The sound of the river washing over rocks gave us all the best nights sleep. Jill was very flexible and accomodating with our arrival time which we needed to delay due to rain on the first day. We would love to come back one day.

Beautiful hideaway
We would recommend this most beautiful, quiet little hideaway to everyone! We had a lovely 2 nights with friends and was so peaceful and enjoyable and the river amazing. The amenities are rustic and add to the charm of this beautiful bush retreat. We highly recommend!

Beautiful riverside retreat
Absolutely beautiful slice of paradise. Completely off grid. Perfect space to disconnect from the world in nature. Fall asleep with the tranquil sounds of the river flowing next to you. Facilities are exactly what you need - wonderful undercover kitchen area (byo cooking gear), toilet and shower next to a firepit overlooking the river. Jill and Yoshi are amazing hosts, super friendly and happy to help where needed but also leave you undisturbed to enjoy the space. Can't recommend highly enough!

Thanks Jill & Yoshi, We had a a great time at Bai-Yai. Even though the river was flowing fast and high we did manage a couple of glimpse of a platypus! The campsite remains firm even with all the previous rain. Until we see you next time.
