Squiggles welcomes you to come and enjoy the peace, calm, and serenity this little piece of paradise offers. It truly is magical. The perfect location for you to rest, relax and unwind. Situated in the Clarence Valley we are on an Island surrounded by two very vast rivers.....we are the very end of that Island.....123 acre Sugar Cane Farm. Squiggles is a born and bred local and will help you with anything you require to make your stay here relaxing or as adventurous as you like.....Thank You to all who have already stayed here and appreciated it's beauty. We enjoy sharing it with you. The dolphins are back after last years floods and are usually sighted daily. Ducks, stingrays, fish, crabs....there is plenty of wildlife and birds. The Sunsets and Sunrises are insane....We have complimentary Kayaks, fishing rods and a two person row boat....Squigs will find some bait for you if required and for a small extra fee we supply firewood. There's a few bikes for the kids and swing ball. You are welcome to bring your boat as the river is perfect for waterskiing, fishing or just exploring the area..... we have a boat ramp on the property or one just down the road. People have left their boats in whilst here and tied up near their camp. We welcome and encourage you to walk around the property and enjoy/get lost in nature.... lindy has a small herb garden near the Bush Bathroom...please help yourselves to anything you like from here to add to your cooking. Also our small orchard when in fruit is available for you to enjoy the odd one or two fruits whilst you are here. However please do not get too carried away and strip the trees bare. x We welcome your well behaved dogs (max two per campsite) as we have two ourselves...Please always pick up after your dog, be mindful of other campers and be sure they are chicken friendly as we do have a few free-range chooks and Squiggles is very protective of them.... Just a stones throw from Yamba, Maclean and Iluka (20-25 minute drive) and close to Coffs Harbour, Grafton and Ballina roughly one hours drive. Whilst we do prefer you to be self contained as our campsite is off grid we have knocked together a small shared bush-style bathroom with a camp porta-loo and camp shower. The bathroom has no plumbing and water needs to be collected from the water tap located at the campsite. We have a gas heating system for hot water/showers in the bathroom. We offer three main campsites situated on the east side of the property, all three are river sites. We also have two other sites...these sites are just a little further away from the amenities (50mtr) but are awesome sites and beside the river. Each has a camp fire. We only have room for one vehicle per campsite and only one form of accommodation per camp site. Note: If your extra guest are not sleeping in your accommodation you will need to book separately. (Extra cars can be parked close by on the property). Check in is from 12 noon and check out 11am. Unfortunately due to insurance purposes we have to stick with these times. If you would like to extend your stay and there is availability on the website please be sure to have your extended stay booked before 10:30am on the morning of your departure and inform us of this. We look forward to meeting you Warm Smiles Squiggles

Great camping experience
Gorgeous river side camping. Very peaceful and quite. Saw dolphins daily, fish eagles and lots of wrens. Kids had a great time fishing. Squiggles is an amazing host even bringing us freshly cooked mud crabs! Will definitely be back again.

Camping on the riverfront
We had a great time at Ashby camping by the river, despite 3 days of rain. The view and sounds of the river were amazing. We used the spot as a base to explore Yamba, Maclean, Lawrence, Chatsworth, Harwood and the other areas close by. Otherwise, it was a peaceful place to read and relax.

Perfect spot
Beautiful views and a wonderful drive to the camp spot. We had if to ourselves for 2 days and it was perfect. Great fishing spot. Even a toilet and shower on site. Nice and private. Squiggles met us at site and even parked the caravan for us (first time taking it out) 😁Wonderful start to our week trip away for my wifes Birthday. Thankyou Squiggles you're a top bloke for sharing a piece of your beautiful farm.
