Absolutely gorgeous property with Allan and Jan being the most helpful and caring hosts. Whether you are a camper or staying in the well appointed lodge accommodation you are guaranteed to be relaxed. There is just so much to do and experience from putting the kayak in for a paddle to getting close up and personal with the abundance of wildlife on the property . A very special piece of paradise!

Well maintained private camping areas with toilet and shower facilities. Fire pits and wood provided. Hosts went above and beyond to ensure that we were comfortable and were well looked after. If travelling with non campers option of renting out well equipped lodge next to camp sites. Kayaking available right next to site. Great grounds with plenty of birds and kangaroos to watch and enjoy. Highly recommend.

Private, peaceful, beautiful
Near and Far property is special, we loved the space, the stunning view across the water, fire wood supplied in a great fire pit. The bathroom was a short walk, but clean and the water hot for a shower on a cool day. The most important part of our stay was the freedom our 2 kelpie girls enjoyed, chasing a ball, and each other. Jan and Alan were very welcoming and it was a pleasure to meet them. We will definitely be back. The property was everything we needed for a stay with our dogs.

Serene private camping
Perfect! We loved our stay at Near and Far Cubby House Site, only a short drive into Yamba. A beautiful site with gorgeous water views, flat green grass, perfect facilities for camping or caravanning. The instructions were clear and precise and Jan and Allan went above and beyond to be helpful yet respectful of your privacy, even checking in after a nasty storm! Facilities were beautifully clean and well stocked. Would highly recommend and would love to return.

Riverside camping at its best!
Such a peaceful spot! Allan & Jan are such wonderful hosts!! We would 100% come back here and stay again as it’s close to Yamba but also out of town. Highly recommended if you are heading to this area.

Waterfront, private & picturesque
Lovely, accomodating hosts & beautiful, private location right on the water. Also super convenient location as just minutes to town and short drive to all the beautiful beaches in the area. We got lucky and had an amazing view of the full moon rise! Would stay again for sure.

We loved every minute of our time here. It was beautiful, peaceful and immaculately kept. A very generous stack of firewood for the brazier so it was warm even in winter. Jan and Alan were warm and welcoming. Can highly recommend.

Incredible
Do not hesitate to book the cubby. Incredible hosts with complete river frontage and privacy. The attention to detail is amazing from the fully stocked bathroom and laundry to the fire pit ready to simply lite. This was definitely the highlight of our trip throughout New South Wales.

GREAT CAMPING EXPERIENCE
What a great camping experience! Thanks Jan and Allan for allowing us to experience such a beautiful and quite setting, away from the busy caravan parks. The ablution facilities are fantastic and very clean. Camping next to the water watching the sunrise every morning was spectacular ! We will definitely be back

We had an awesome stay and the hosts couldn't be nicer. Lots of kangaroos around and beautiful river views. Fire pit was great too and unlimited complimentary firewood was an extra bonus. Would 100% recommend.

Camping with all the extras!
We had a lovely few days at this waterfront retreat on Al and Jan's beautiful property. Upon arrival we were immediately greeted by Al and Jan, they gave us a quick rundown of the amenities and showed us to the spot. The cubby house site had stunning river views and filled with awesome wildlife (Kangaroos, Wallabies and lots of birds) and we never had any sandflies. Hightide fishing on dawn or dusk is best, lots of flathead and bream on the flats straight in front, you can literally cast a line from the fire or walk out on the sand at lowtide. We spent our days in town, at the beach and on the tinny in the river, with the property being so close (10mins) you're out of all the crowds, but so close to everything if need be. Both the shower and toilets were clean and a great little bonus. Perfect spot, thanks again Al and Jan, im sure we will be back :)

We had a fantastic time on Alan and Jan's property. Water and 15 amp power (perfect for our van). Firewood and a brazier. Our dog had an awesome time. Kids loved fishing, seeing dolphins and kangaroos. The weather was spectacular while we were there. Alan and Jan were fantastic hosts, very friendly, great with the kids. Everyone had a sensational time. Thank you!

Fantastic spot
Great spot right beside river. Big open fire, dry wood provided, attentive hosts, kangaroos, caught nice bream. Far far better than a crowded caravan park Highly recommended

Paradise on the river
Absolute paradise! The perfect location, amenities and hosts in Jan and Alan. It was an excellent base for visiting Yamba/ Byron and getaway for myself, my wife and 17yo daughter after a hectic 2020. The property is close enough to Yamba that you can quickly grab anything you have forgotten and far enough away that you are oblivious to its existence. The actual camp site is right on the river, has power and water and the excellent amenities are a short walk. Everything is maintained with pride and the nature (fish, crabs, kangaroos, green tree frogs) add to the camping experience and are good for the soul. I truly pitied all of the campers jammed into the van parks each time I drove into town. At risk of making it harder for me to get a booking I absolutely recommend Jan and Alan's property to anyone wanting to get away from it all ... within 10 minutes of a decent coffee!

Great hosts, great location
Jan and Alan, were wonderful hosts. They went above and beyond. Helping us settle in and make our stay as comfortable as possible, despite the stormy weather. We had a great site. Grassy on the water edge. What an outlook. Close to town and the beaches. Thoroughly enjoyed our short stay.

A magical spot on the river
Jan and Alan have a little bit of paradise on the river in Yamba. They were welcoming, accomodating and fantastic hosts. The campsite was immaculate and the bathroom facilities were amazing - like no other at any campsite we've ever stayed at. When it started pouring as we were packing up Jan and Alan came out with umbrellas, towels and moral support! Thank you both so much for sharing your place with us.
