The Caves is a picturesque private grassy area immediately adjacent to the Timbarra/Rocky River with views to the surrounding landscape of mountains and undulating hills and takes its name from the pitted sections of the cliff face on the other side of the river. The campsite is accessed off the public road. The upper level is suitable for caravans, RVs, motorhomes, camping trailers, tents and swags and has a beautiful view of the river. The lower area is immediately adjacent to the river and is suited for smaller caravans, motorhomes, RVs, camper trailers and tents. Some areas on the lower section are flat and others on a slight slope. The lower area has shade trees and the upper level is mostly cleared where the land is flat but has shade from the adjoining trees. There are pit toilets available.

Pets are allowed but dogs must be leashed unless accompanied, and must be leashed if livestock or other campers are nearby. Fishing is also allowed providing licensed, but note that Eastern Cod are catch and release only, and any fish heads and innards are to be buried away from the campsite. Firewood is available free of charge. An initial supply will be provided and guests are welcome to gather their own.

The Rocky is a special place and we expect our guests to treat it respectfully, removing their rubbish and not emptying any waste water from caravans/RVs/motorhomes on site or in the river. There is a dump point in Tenterfield.

There is a landline at the Boundary Hut and at Corner Camp for emergencies, and wifi will soon be available at the Boundary Hut if someone really has to connect with the internet for urgent matters. The Boundary property is 10000 acres and has extensive private river frontage, providing a lovely scenic drive through the valley. The camping areas at Boundary Riverside, the China Wall, The Cockatoo and The Caves are all on the river but are on the western side with easy access to the public road so even if the river rises campers will not be stranded.

Boundary adjoins Washpool National Park and is near Billirimba Fire Trail and Lookout and Falls.

Beautiful spot, well maintained, excellent directions. Bring kayaks, the rapids are fun! Hosts were very accommodating. Firewood was supplied! The drop toilets were a bonus. Would definitely love to go again.

The Caves was a beautiful grassy campsite. It was the perfect getaway. Such a peaceful spot.

Bronwyn and Bill were excellent hosts and bent over backwards to accomodate us and ensure we had a great time.

We will be back!!

We had a great time. Bronwyn is lovely, gave detailed directions and met us at the camp. The river is beautiful, perfect for canoe or SUP board and deep swimming hole. The little 'outhouses' are very sweet and the cleanest long drops I've ever experienced!
Thankyou 😊

Lovely to meet you Cathy. Glad you had a great time and had fun in the water, and the rain didn’t stay around your whole stay!
