Surrounded by 40,000 acres of world heritage rainforest, 15 minutes outside the village of Kuranda, you will camp next to the mighty Barron River. 

This place is totally private and you have access to a sandy beach where swimming is safe and completely secluded. It's a great place for kayaking and stand up paddle boarding. There is a 360 degree views from the property, with nothing made by man in the way. 

Sit and watch the moon rise over the water in a most magical environment as you keep warm around the campfire.

Large open area for camping with fire rings. Short walk down the steps to the sandy beach to a beautiful stretch of the barron river. Wake up to the birds singing. This property and camps were outstanding.
What really makes a difference to this camp is the hosts, Don and Judy how they are welcoming and accommodating to share there property with you.

Judy and Don are truly national treasures. Their piece of paradise on the Barron River is breathtaking. If you are looking for beautiful camp site with amazing views and a place to relax and unwind, look no further.

Your Hosts understand great customer service and go above and beyond to ensure you have a magical stay. Cannot wait to go back

Loved our stay at Barron River getaway! Loved it so much we stayed another 4 nights! Judy and Don were so lovely, invited us up to their home for a fireside soirée with their friend and the other campers. Spent days exploring the river by kayak (loaned by the owners). We loved hearing Judy and Don speak about their adventurous lives, and past, and future, endeavours. Fabulous place, take the kids, they will love it!

Our stay at Barron River Getaway was planned as a 4 day getaway from the hustle and bustle of life on the road as a travelling family. We quickly settled into the property and we’re welcomed wholeheartedly by Judy and Don. 11 days later we reluctantly departed and swore to return!

The space is open and generous, the gardens and facilities were beautifully maintained and we were made to feel so welcome and so at home buy our wonderful hosts.

We could not fault this property and look forward to the next opportunity we have to share in its beauty and seclusion.

Thanks Judy and Don for such a wonderful stay!

This place is amazing. It is suited for couples and families. Judy was so helpful and informative and made sure we were set up for a good time. We enjoyed kayaking, fishing and swimming and it was all in the one spot at the doorstop of our camping spot. I highly recommend this place for tents and caravans. Being surrounded by rainforest, you wouldnt realise its not too far to smithfield kuranda for any forgotten supplies. We visited the markets at Kuranda for half a day but the rest of our days were spent at Judys beautiful place as we didnt have any reason to go elsewhere because we were in paradise! We will definitely come back.
