Our property is located on the far south coast of NSW in the town of Eden at the top of Nethercote Falls. Come and pitch your tent at any one of our several large, grassy sites along the beautiful Yowaka River.  We have around 1km of river frontage right near the campsites, which has lots of swimming holes to enjoy. The property also has 3-4km of walking tracks on the property. There is plenty of wildlife all over the property and lots of native birds. We are a short walk from the beautiful Nethercote falls but please be aware that the walk to the falls can be challenging with some rock scrambling and climbing over logs. We are a 15 minute drive to both Eden and Pambula which both have stunning beaches, great cafes and shop access for all your camping needs.  We have a pit toilet available and we are pet friendly but pets must be kept on a leash at all times. Campfires are permitted in the fire pit provided and firewood can be purchased at a small additional cost (see extras). Please note that reception is limited on the property- time to immerse yourself in nature and relax!

Do you need anything else??
Cheryle’s beautiful place is full of adventure. Don’t worry about planning anything else, a week on the river bank will hold new wonders everyday, whether you’re bird watching, finding frogs or playing in the river making paint with the kids. But by far, the highlight was Cheryle and Micks’ hospitality. A return trip destination. Thanks for having us!

By the river with the dog
I wish we could have stayed longer. This place offered so much. Kids played by the river all day if we let them. We were lucky enough to have a tour of the Falls with the host and we absolutely loved it, if you get the offer, take it! Thank you again.

So good.
Perfect camp spot. Don't tell anyone! Grassy site, right by the river with our own fire pit and toilet. A short walk to waterfall and swimming hole - what more could you want? Mick and Cheryle were generous and accommodating, and genuinely enjoy having people stay, and did what they could to ensure our kids had a great time despite the rainy weather. Looking forward to going back when we can.

A magical, secluded spot
We loved our stay at Yowaka River Camp! Our little cliff campsite was a magical spot, overlooking the river and was very well set up. We enjoyed cooking over the fire, swimming in our private river pool and watching the sunset over the bush. Quite possibly one of the best camping spots we’ve ever stayed at!

Best place ever!!!
Wow… we travelled for 7 months in our caravan last year around Australia with 3 kids and 2 dogs, and this was hands down one of the best places we have stayed at. Mick and Cheryl made us feel like family and went above and beyond! Swimming in the waterfall for the kids, they showed the kids how to make face paint with the rocks, collected eggs from the chooks each morning and fed them our food scraps, and lots of walks and things to do!!! Did not want to leave and the kids said they wanted to stay for a month!! Plenty of room for the kids and dogs to run around, play soccer, make mud cakes, we even watched the AFL grand final here. Sites are far apart and very private… did not see another camper while we were there. Property was perfectly maintained and the gardens were impeccable. Compost toilet on site. They also supply fire pits and you can buy fire wood from them too. Thank you sooo much for sharing your property with us. We will see you on our way back xo

Absolutely fantastic! Super relaxing and very private. We dragged our 18ft caravan down a narrow track to the ‘swan lake’ site, easily accessible, lovely setting along side the river. Some fantastic walks on the property including a trail to Nethercote Falls. Cheryle was a wonderful host. We’ll definitely be back!

Beautiful waterfalls!
We had the best time at Yowaka River Camp! The property is beautiful with the river running through it. So peaceful falling asleep to the sound of the river flowing. Cheryle took us on a tour of the property which led to the stunning Nethercote Falls. We went for a swim in the waterfall, it was cold but very refreshing! We can’t wait to bring the rest of the family back to enjoy this hidden gem. Thank you so much for having us!

Yowaka River Camp
Wow, what an amazing spot to stay! Our family enjoyed a very peaceful stay of three days over the recent Easter Long Weekend. Our designated camp area was very spacious and well maintained. The toilet was super clean and we shared the entire camp area with only one other family! (Michael expressed that they were required to place the two families at one site due to other areas being flooded out. Usually, campers would have the entire site to themselves.) The running water in the river was quite cool but considerably clean considering the high rainfall over recent weeks. We used the water for washing. Our two teen boys swam daily as they weren't deterred by the cool temperature. A fire drum was available for us to use. We took our own wood however, Michael can supply wood when you get there for a fee. Michael took us on a guided walk/adventure to see the nearby waterfalls, which we thoroughly enjoyed. If the area wasn't a 7hr (one way) trip for us, we'd make it a regular stay for sure! Thanks so much for your hospitality Michael and Cheryl

River Front Bliss
We felt so lucky to have had the opportunity to stay at Yowaka River camp, especially when our planned Hip camp in the same region was cancelled due to the heavy rainfall. Michael and Cheryle's property is off the scales in beauty, peacefulness and tranquility. The river and falls are stunning. Can't thank Michael and Cheryle enough for allowing hip campers to share their slice of heaven. They are amazing hosts who want nothing more than their guests to have a positive and enriched experience on their property.

An absolutely perfect camp spot! We fell asleep to the sound of the river and woke up to the birds. The campsite is lovely, flat and grassed with easy access to the river. A short walk to the falls which were pumping courtesy of the recent heavy rains. Michael and Cheryle went out of their way to make us welcome and even helped our youngest celebrate her birthday. Thank you for a lovely stay.
