Fantastic secluded place with beautiful attention to detail. The space is excellent for small gatherings with big firepits, all cooking facilities and amazing views on the river. We'll definitely be back!

We had a wonderful time and the setting is just beautiful. Lots of space, plenty of equipment, and Ross and Sharon (and George) are lovely. We even saw one of the local wombats. We drove up and down the track in our 4WD with no troubles. Our friends in 2WD struggled a bit in places, but this was mainly due to ground clearance as it can be quite bumpy. There can also be quite a few flies during the day. Not a reflection on the quality of the campsite at all, just worth noting if you're bothered by that sort of thing. All in all, a fantastic camping spot and one we'll definitely be returning to!

This is such a beautiful site, with great facilities for somewhere that feels so remote and private. The river and mountains are spectacular. The shelter with camp kitchen and sleeping mezzanine is so well made and so useful, especially in inclement weather. The road in is bit steep and a little bumpy, but was fine for our group driving slowly in SUVs, station wagons and vans.

Sharon and Ross are wonderful hosts, and checked on us just enough so as to be very helpful, without imposing on our privacy at all.

The dads and kids on this winter camping trip had the best time! We can't stop talking about how good it was, and how we will be back.
