Rustic cabin with 2 x single beds & verandah, overlooking the river. Linen hire extra or bring your own sheets & towels. About 15 metres to shared camp kitchen & bathroom 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! 

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

CRITICAL: Please ensure your personal profile is completed including a photo before submitting a booking request.

    Had a wonderful stay at platypus hut. Jill and Yoshi were wonderful hosts, they have a beautiful property and their care and love of the land is so evident. The camp kitchen and toilet and shower were amazing and the little hut provided welcome shelter in inclement weather. Right on the edge of the river And great for swimming A perfect place to retreat and respect nature in all its beauty
