The China Wall is a picturesque grassy area adjacent to the Timbarra/Rocky River with gorgeous views to the surrounding landscape of mountains and cliffs, pasture and undulating hills. The campsite is easily accessed off the public road, and is west of the Cockatoo campsite. The camp site is on the upper level immediately overlooking the river and is suitable for caravans, RVs and motorhomes of all sizes, as well as camping trailers, tents and swags. There is vehicle access along the short track to rivers edge, and it is an easy walk down. The upper camping level is mostly cleared but has some shade from the adjoining trees as well as shade from the cliff. There is a pit toilet available. The Cockatoo takes its name from the cliff face to the west which has a white mark on the rock which looks like a cockatoo sitting there. The China Wall is a sheer rock wall directly opposite on the other side of the river that goes west to east from the Cockatoo cliff to the bend in the river.
Adults are $17pp, children 5-16 years old are $9pp, children under 5 stay free.
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 really has to connect with the internet for urgent matters. If the entire Cockatoo and China Wall area is wanted for a very large group an exclusive booking may be made. 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 has easy access to Billirimba Fire Trail and Lookout and Falls.

If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
The hosts were all great, the directions very clear (easy to get to anyway) and we really appreciated the dry firewood given the afternoon storms.
The toilet was very clean and not bad at all on the nose even with it being a drop dunny. The river and view of the wall is quite pretty, the water was nice the first day but with a drop of rain became fresher and made for a good paddle downstream.
We looked at a few other sites while we were there and each has its own special features and merits depending on what you want to do and who you have with you, the diversity of options is another reason this area is special.
