Located on the edge of the river, your own private river access. Area suitable for 2-3 separate tents or camper trailers. On leveled area adjacent to facilities.

Bai-Yai is a 480 acre partly Conservation Covenanted property, 70 minutes south-west of Armidale & 70 minutes north-west of Tamworth. On the tablelands 700 metres above sea level, next door to Warrabah National Park. Our northern boundary is the Macdonald river, just before it drops westward through the gorges & changes its name to the Namoi.

We're for the nature-lover who enjoys peace & quiet away from crowds, who values birdsong above the hum of cars & generators! Our facilities are simple but comfortable, all off-grid. There's a covered platform kitchen area overlooking some of the great river swimming spots for campers to enjoy, a pit toilet, simple shower, & fresh drinking water supplied daily. The owners house is out of sight but within coo-ee if needed.

The river & general wildness of terrain make Bai-Yai camping not really suitable for young children who requite 24/7 supervision for their safety.

Great spot to sit and look out at the river rolling past.
Loved having the covered camp kitchen area with the toilet and shower (will try the shower next time when we don’t camp in Winter) and the different options for cooking our meals was most appreciated by our keen camp cook.
Jill was really nice showing us around.
Already looking forward to coming back.

We really enjoyed our time at Bai-Yai River Outlook Camping. We were the only guests, so it was very quiet and peaceful. The outlook was beautiful and our sons enjoyed a lot of time playing at the edge of the river. The camp kitchen area, camp oven and shower all added to our camping experience.

Hey, Kellie and family! We so enjoyed having you here over Easter, the children were delightful and I really liked talking with you all. Loved Ashton's persistent but serious questions! Hope everything goes well for the future, and it would be great to see you again! Take care and all, the best, Jill.

What a wonderful place! Found it very hard to leave. Beautiful, private, great swimming in the river. The wood fired shower was a treat. Jill was a lovely host. Some terrific walks in their property and in the national park next door. Highly recommended!!

100% recommended, not only for the incredible and peaceful spot, the only sound you could hear was the water running in the river, but also for the wonderful hosts Jill and Yoshi.

This has to be the best campsite I stayed at so far. Yoshi and Jill are lovely hosts, super helpful and caring. A very well looked after spot, no reception and just the sound of birds and the river to keep you company. Wallabies will certainly be your next door guests.

This is such a beautiful site run by beautiful hosts Jill and Yoshi. From waking up each morning to going to bed at night, we felt totally relaxed. The river was beautiful to swim in and the land belonging to the hosts was full of life. It was simply wonderful spending time here and we were lucky enough to see the rare and endangered Bells turtle while there. We can not wait to get back to this very special spot.

Bush camping with added surprises

We loved the magic of a quiet bush camp, a babbling river for scenery, thrown in with some interesting extras we’ve not seen before in our bush camping travels. The luxury of a hot shower using the rocket stove to heat water, and oven roasts using the bush oven. It was lovely relaxing on the verandah of the camp kitchen. Thank you Jill and Yoshi for your hospitality and sharing of your fabulous hidden oasis.

Fantastic little spot my partner and I haven't stopped telling everyone about the trip. Loved swimming in the river and relaxing under the little shelter kitchen area listening to the river while reading a book. 10/10 will definitely be back 😀
