Located on the edge of the river your own private river access. Secluded spot surrounded by bush. Walk-in entry only. About 50 metres from shared facilities, fireplace & car parking. Very romantic! Use your own tent, or our tent & blow-up mattress can be hired for extra cost.

Located on the edge of the river your own private river access. Secluded spot surrounded by bush. Walk-in entry only. About 50 metres from shared facilities, fireplace & car parking. Very romantic! Use your own tent, or our tent & blow-up mattress can be hired for extra cost.

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.

Really enjoyed my 2 nights and talking to Jill about the property. Facilities are basic rustic but clean and tidy. I will be back for a longer stay to enjoy the serenity. We need another few thousand couples like Jill and Yoshi to restore our degraded lands.
