We booked this camp via instant book and arrived 40mins after booking as we were on the road, the hosts were very welcoming even though it was such short notice.
The property is absolutely stunning!
The grounds are very well looked after and it's a serene view down by the creek.
There's lots of birdlife and you can hear the roar of the undercliffe falls in the distance.
The property is a very close drive to undercliffe Falls for a day of adventuring and swimming.
We absolutely loved our short stay here, we will be back!
In our opinion the top spot to camp is the platypus plateau ☺️

Camping close to waterfall
Great campsite with great amenities within close hike to nearby waterfall. Would definitely stay again.

Had the whole place to ourselves. It was lovely. We did see the platypus every morning. It can get quite cold around winter, so pack your warm clothes (1.3 degrees on our coldest night). We were here during off-peak season, so it was quite serene. However, I can imagine the place being quite noisy during school holidays with trail bike riders.

Advertised hot running water, stayed 2 nights with water for 1 night. Scrap metal was placed through camp facility so not safe for kids.

Cozy 3Brm Cottage
I loved the touches of flowers on the cottage, the horses to greet you at the back door for a few carrots and all the rustic touches of a country cottage. It has all you need to have a restful stay. I was introduced to all the farm animals including the baby bunnies. The fire at night was needed to keep warm to watch the stars, you might even get a visit from a friendly ginger farm cat to keep your lap warm. It's quite a big property to explore with other campers sprinkled around and if you dare to have a swim there is a swing to splash into the creek. Lots of rosellas, black cockatoos and a potential platypus living in the creek (which you’ll have to be patient to see). This is a nice solo camper getaway, for couples or even a cute family stay.

Beautiful property with very well mowed and looked after campgrounds. Hosts were very friendly and was plenty to do there.

The camping on the bank in front of the river was beautiful, stunning scenery. Good amenities, hot water was very appreciated.

We had the best time camping at Bookies Bank. So picturesque and awesome activities for the kids. Owners are so friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back.

Excellent stay at Bookies Bank. Peaceful and quiet and close proximity to the creek. The kids loved the swing into the creek. Great spot!

Absolutely beautiful place to stay. Ben and Katrina are lovely people. The toilet and shower was great. Very highly recommended.

Absolutely perfect spot. We had a wonderful weekend. My only suggestion would be to warn campers that you plan on waking everyone up for certain things like the dawn service. Other than that, it was amazing and we will definitely be back!!
No designated sites, great for kids
Katrina was lovely but it felt like it was a bit of a free for all. We had ‘site 7’ booked, but there are no assigned sites. We were told to go wherever we liked. If you have young kids who ride motorcycles it is brilliant but if you want peace and quiet and a finite amount of campers, perhaps look elsewhere. We booked for three nights, stayed for one.

Spent Easter long weekend here and it was fantastic even with a bit of rain. Owner was great and friendly and very welcoming. Creek was full and beautiful was bit cold for swimmimg but my nephews had fun playing on rock and water edge. Boys all had fun out on the motorbike trails.
There swing and trampoline that my nephew spent a lot of time there playing with other children.
Toliet and shower was clear. I didnt use the showers as we had shower in caravan but my sister said they was nice and hot.
Highly recommended for family with young or older children

Beautiful location off grid
Katrina and Ben were great hosts. Easy check in, our pick of camp site, great amenities that didn't intrude on the campsite, and amazing location. We experienced a ridiculous downpour, and they offered dryers, shade and anything else we needed to clean out our site after the pour. Easy access, shade, river and beautiful rockpools leading to the Falls only a short walk from our site.

Easily would be a 5 star review. Unfortunately after 5 days camping there we came home and seen a post on Facebook saying we had taken up too much space. We had numerous convos with the owners and they hadn’t told us this. They said it was free range go where you want. No site markings. Disappointed

Lots of open space! Beautiful river to swim in and play! Lots of shade! River right at your campsite! Hosts and their kids very welcoming

Katrina and Ben are great hosts, the property is awesome, clean and well maintained campgrounds, hot showers, a big load of firewood available at a small cost. The river is beautiful, wildlife abundant bandicoots, Possum’s, platypus, geese, birds and more. A really enjoyable experience.

Wow, what a spot. Toilet and shower block were nearly completed. We spent a couple of nights camped down by the creek. Platypus were seen frequently. Nice walk along the creek to the falls.

Lovely friendly hosts. We will definitely be back. Ben and Katrina were incredibly helpful after a car break down. The property is spacious, our stay was very enjoyable.

Absolute peace and tranquillity. A beautiful spot to spend 3 days camping.

Amazing place, we were lucky enough to have the whole place to ourselves for the weekend. Multiple Platypus swimming around right next our campsite was definitely a highlight. Great friendly hosts and very helpful.
