We are a operating beef farm located on the river. Good for kayaking and fishing. Walking amongst the trees and along the river. 

We have chosen six locations on the farm which are lovely.

Sites 1 "the rope swing"; site 5 "the Collie"  and site 2 "the boat ramp" are on the river flat in one paddock.

We are a operating beef farm located on the river. Good for kayaking and fishing. Walking amongst the trees and along the river. 

We have chosen six locations on the farm which are lovely.

Sites 1 "the rope swing"; site 5 "the Collie"  and site 2 "the boat ramp" are on the river flat in one paddock.

Site 3 is high on the riverbank amongst trees which the kids call 'Piccaddilly Park' as it has old growth trees, a bike riding track the kids have created and a lovely view down on to the Collie river. This is good for small groups. If you are a larger group just let me know when booking as we can move you along into the paddock where there is more room.

We have just added site '6' Charlie's View". It is on the grassy river bank and please be aware that this has a different entrance so be aware when reading direction information or get in contact if you have queries.

Site 4 is what the kids call the "motorcross track" as set along the river in ours sons motorbike practice track. Don't worry - we wont let him ride when there are campers! Best spot for those looking for a reasonably secluded location as we only have one site here.  

All camp sites have access to long drop toilets.  We do not have other amenities available.

The river is used by canoeists and leisure boats so often people passing by. The river is healthy (we have had dolphins visit) but quite silty so not the best for swimming but ofcourse you still can. We will attempt to have a kayak available at each site. If you have a boat then you can launch here and explore the Collie River. 

As an operating farm the fences are electric and people must be aware to not go in cattle paddocks as the protective Mum cows and bulls may not be particularly friendly!. 

We are very close to Eaton which has a great shopping centre and some lovely parks. Bunbury is close with great beaches and recreation. Another close gem is the Ferguson Valley with excellent bike trails, wineries, brewery's and scenery. 

Look forward to hosting you at Riverview.

We had a great time at site 1 "The Rope Swing" on the waters edge. Super easy to follow site directions and a lovely welcome pack on arrival, including some helpfull little  things like fire lighters & insect repellent (though no mozzies during our stay 😁) The 2 extra kayaks provided at site allowed all eleven of us on the water at the same time, which was great.  We had the whole place to ourselves (probably due to the forecast 😅) and the kids enjoyed playing on the hillside and hay bales when they weren't playing with axes or fire 😆
We enjoyed the visit from the farm dogs- super friendly, they even sneaked in for a cuddle one early morning & kept the kids warm 😄
The hay bale Long drop toilet was clean and stocked, even had a little mirror. Conveniently close to site without being next to us, kids could walk to it alone and be in sight the whole way.
The exit road got a bit muddy after all the rain & vehicles. It took a bit of skill to get up with road tyres whilst pulling a heavy trailer.
We stayed 3 nights and had heavy rain on the last night but were mostly dry by pack up. Gumboots were an essential and we may have taken a little mud home with us 😁

Third time staying at Ellen’s beautiful property. Everyone that was in our group absolutely loved the stay and want to go again. It’s one of our favourite places.

Wow Kelly. You must all be seasoned campers as was quite the rainy weekend and sounds like you still managed to immerse yourselves in nature and enjoy. Thanks for choosing Riverview and hope the birthday celebrations went well.

Absolutely great camping area right on the river. Clean toilet. Plenty of flat grassed area to set up and let the children run around. Had a couple of kayaks we could use, which we made great use out of getting our lures back hahah. We camped at site 4 and we were surprised how isolated and quiet it was, especially being so close to everything. Even though it was very wet we definitely recommend this camp and will be back.

What a beautiful location for our camping weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there with our family and doggies. Our host was awesome and even left us a welcoming gift. Kids loved the kayaks provided and all the trees to climb. the open air long drop was clean and had great views. We will definitely be back!

I loved camping by the riverside. It was an absolute treat. Ellen's place is great, the camp site was right up near the water and we felt like we were in our own private oasis. The toilets were set out in hay bails which was fantastic! Firewood was waiting for us on arrival was quickly put to use. The hosts also helped me jump start my car after my battery died. Ellen also left us a wonderful welcome package which we put to good use. A map of the area and things to do, a beverage, smores and bug spray. 5 stars!
