Lovely New Years weekend on the Clarence. It is a beautiful remote location with lots of space and a chance to kayak down river. Many thanks for a great time!

It was beautiful. Rare to find a spot not too far away that places you within the depths of nature. Many an adventure to be had. I will return soon.
Sharon was amazing in making us feel at home and helping us with the canoes. The hot showers are a luxury as well as the beautiful full Clarence river!!

Fantastic, stayed in the She Oak grove site on the banls opf the river. Walking thru the tress, took about 3 mins walk (its a rocky kind of pathway) to the river rapids. No issues with the walk to the river and well worth it. Sat in the river rapids and watched the sun go down over the top of the mountain range with no one else around, awesome. No other sites anywhere near us or noise from others. We had a 2W drive car and arrived Ok, a 4W Drive would be better as we spend plenty of time on unpaved roads getting in and out. This place was what we were looking for and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Great hosts, beautiful location, well equipped site, great hikes and 4WD tracks, wildlife about. River wasn't flowing due to the drought, but it's certainly well worth the stay regardless. Keen to return, highly recommend.

What a beautiful location... The drive in was breathtaking and my kids enjoyed it. This is a hidden paradise and would be well worth the trip. The kids dissolved themselves into the canoeing and kayaking in the river. We spent some great family time.. Plenty of wildlife and the host's were great.

Such a gorgeous place. Plenty of space to spread out. Sharon very friendly and informative and generously allows guests the use of kayaks. We were lucky enough to see platypus during one of our paddles. Recommend a shade gazebo as very hot in the middle of the day. Also take time on the driveway in.
