The sites are level pastured camping areas with lovely trees providing good shade alongside the river. We have tried to preserve the natural eco system on the river bank so it is heavily wooded and largely untouched.

The total area for camping is approximately 500 metres with only four sites spaced far apart to ensure plenty of space and privacy. Each site has very easy access to the river.

Enjoy plenty of swimming and kayaking in the river, fishing is welcome but must be catch and release only.

There is a central common area with a large fire pit for all to gather around if you would like and there is a good pile of firewood available for campers to enjoy.

Access is 4WD or AWD only. In severe weather the Mary River can flood. Be prepared to leave in extreme weather.

Campers must be self sufficient with their own camping toilet and must take all waste and rubbish with them on departure. 

Pets are welcome.

We enjoyed a quick trip to Gordon’s property on the Mary River. Nice spot in the valley on top of the river with lots of space, easy access to the river and a million stars at night. The dog was allowed off lead so she had a great time exploring and swimming in the river. The river was great for exploring with the kids and had a few faster sections they could float down which was good fun. Gordon was an awesome host who was super friendly and helpful. Good spot to visit on your own or with only 4 sites book with a few friends and have the place to yourself.

We had a wonderful time tent camping on Gordon’s land. We stayed in site 1 and felt that were able to spread out our set up alot more compared to the other sites. We put our tents under the big trees, which were gorgeous and provided wonderful shade (the bats do hang out in those trees at night tho).
Lots of interesting bugs & insects appearing at night too. My hubby was fascinated with the variety. We didnt get a chance to utilise the river this time, hopefully next time. Location wise, it was excellent. Perfect spot to explore the hinterland. It was peaceful and quiet for most of the day/night, hardly noticed the other campers from the other sites. There was some occasional road noise but nothing like our home in the city. Gordon was a wonderful host, very welcoming and gave excellent directions. Would highly recommend.

We braved the weather & spent 3 nights at Gordons place last weekend. Very spacious sites & right on the river. Very nice property & Gordon was very helpful. He guided us down to the site & explained everything.. the dogs came down to say hello to our border collie & were no trouble at all.
A very relaxing few days. We will be back (when the weather is a bit better)
