Dom and his wife are legends and made us feel very welcome even before we arrived. There are some challenges if it rains but Dom could not have been more helpful. Thanks both!

This place was perfect! Grassy spots right on the river and beautiful mountain views. Helpful and generous owners even helped with car troubles. Thank you Dom from Millie and Eden!

We had a fabulous time!! We go to many Hipcamp places and was one of the most welcoming hosts we’ve ever experienced. Dol couldn’t do enough for us and brought kayaks down for us to use on the river. Loved this location!! We will be back!

The site is very beautiful, private and in a great location. It’s right by the river offering great views and is very close to Bellingen town.
There’s lots of space between campsites so if you are looking for privacy you won’t be dissappointed. There’s a great spot for swimming although it’s only accessible via one campsite so you need to walk through someone else’s camp to get there (unless it’s your spot).
There is one toilet but it’s very far to walk from most sites so best to bring a shovel.
Water is available on request but you need to drive up to the house to get it (no tap on site).
The owner Dom seems very friendly and respectful of your space and leaves you to do your own thing.
There’s also cattle on site and they roam freely between the campsites. We really enjoyed their company although our neighbouring campers got their pantry broken into and their bread stolen so be careful to pack your food away.
All in all the spot is absolutely beautiful but even then 80$ for a night of basic camping with no real facilities is too much imo. I think it could be justified if there were more toilets/showers or at least water taps near camp. We definitely enjoyed our stay but I would be hesitant to pay 187$ for 2 nights of basic camping for 2 people again. There are lots of equally as beautiful spots available for less than half the price. The great reviews and photos lured me in and I am definitely happy we stayed! Hope this review helps :)

Hi Kateriina I receive $ 142 out of $187 Hipcamp take their commission. If I do charge less I would have too many campers and it will be like camping in a "Bunnings Car Park"

Great spot, loads of space along the river. Only a long drop, take all you need including water, however town is literally 5mins away by car. Dog friendly, our 2 were happy lounging about or a dip in the river. Bit soggy due to rain, 2WD would find it a bit slippery but Dom will sort you out. Under the stars, the peace, a camp fire, the sounds of the river, what more do you need? Dom & Jackie, friendly greeting on arrival, no fuss, pick your spot. Happy as, will be back.

Amazing and private place. Right next to the river, literally a few meters from the camp site, with a little riverside beach and kayaks provided. Camps site are spaces apart, so never crowded. Bellingen just down the road and convenient also. Dom is very attentive and made sure we were ok and free garden cucumbers and capsicums were yum. We are already thinking of when we can go back. Dogs had an amazing time also.
