This property is a Pristine Riverfront property in Colo Valley. It is a tidal river with sandy shallow sandbars and 10ft deep swimming holes. There is an abundance of native animals here including kangaroos, lyre birds, lace monitors, platypus and more! Access is via a short dirt driveway to the riverfront camping area. The access is 2wd unless there has been significant rain it becomes 4wd access. We can accommodate both small and large groups with sites just steps away from the river. We have 2 water entrances, one is a large grassed area with shallow water which is great for kids & families. The other entrance is a natural sandy entry with a deeper swimming area suitable for adults. We also have a beautiful lagoon area where I can arrange additional campers. We have built some new flushing toilets (3) with a hot water shower. We are very accommodating of your pets. We welcome dogs and can host horses in one of the paddocks. Please ensure you contact the host prior to your stay if you are bringing any animals.  We have canoes & floats which you can hire to paddle up the river. Additional activities here include fishing, swimming, bushwalking, canoeing & birdwatching. We are also only a 5 minute drive to Colo Riverside Cafe. We also have 2 beautiful brand new glamping tents that you can hire. Please see our extras. I look forward to meeting you soon!

Shady Acres Colo River- Powered
Best Easter Camping Ever!
Excellent camping spot. The kids (and adults) had a ball - we were a group of 19 people (5 families). The spot was large, flat and clean with a short path to the river. The kids had multiple river dips in the day. Short walk up to the facilities (wash + toilets). Our one fisherman even caught a fish for dinner. Would definitely recommend and also book again in the future.

Great site with direct river access
Great site for groups with everything you need on hand. Direct access to the river, which is perfect for swimming and kayaking. Lots of firewood laying around, toilet block that is kept in pristine condition and simply an idyllic location. Highly recommended and the host, Lisa, is very welcoming.
