Hidden in a valley with direct frontage to the pristine Hollanders River and the Kanangra-Boyd National Park, this is a remote bush camp surrounded by snow gums, mountain gums and overlooks a pebbly beach on the Hollanders River.

There is a pit toilet, cold shower, picnic table with chairs and a designated firepit area. Access is quite steep and 4WD is recommended, however, 2WD vehicles can park at the top of the hill, 300m away from the campsite and walk/carry gear down.

This location suits bookings for groups between 4 and 25 people. For bigger groups or 2WD access, look at my other campsite, Wallaby Flat.

Campfires are permitted in the designated fire ring, it can get quite cool in the valley so I suggest bringing your own dry firewood. There is some scattered around you are welcome to collect your own (BYO recommended).

There is no mobile reception at the campsite, you can get some Telstra reception is on higher ground up near the cattle grid a short drive out of camp. If you are with Optus or other networks there is nothing available (enjoy the time disconnected!). I recommend downloading or screeen shotting all maps/photos and directions before you get to Oberon.

I offer guided tours to remote waterfalls - check out the extras and experiences.

We have stayed at many places on hip camp, travelling to locations from Sydney for small trips away into the wilderness. This place is absolutely fantastic and I would highly recommend it.

Location is beautiful, quiet and offers plenty of fishing and adventure.

The host Danny was one of the highlights, funny, helpful and invested in making sure you have the best time possible. We signed up for the guided walk and he took us to some breathtaking places that few people have probably ever set foot.

If you are looking for somewhere to go get away, play in the river, explore and sit back with a few cold beers by a campfire on your own the this place is perfect

My son and I had awesome time at Rhapsody, such a beautiful peaceful place.
Lucky I brought some firewood and the chainsaw with me, there’s not much around and because of dew this time of the year it’s mostly wet. Regardless, campfire was epic and the cold plunged in the river even more.
Highly recommended for a small group or a family, perfect spot 🙏😇🤘

Wonderful spot! Brooke from Hipcamp here (staff). This is an amazing spot! River right at your doorstep. Big fire pit. Great pit toilet and cold shower.

You won’t find a more peaceful spot or friendly Host. We booked Danny to take us on a hike to Box Creek Falls. Absolutely sensational. You’ll need a high level of fitness an an adventurous spirit for this hike.

Danny taught us how to fish for trout. And we bought some of his honey for damper - divine.

There is no mobile reception at camp. You won’t regret booking here (unless you like seeing other people around you when you camp).

A peaceful and private getaway. The campsite is as described. Very tricky to find, so make sure you follow the directions and take notice of the photos and maps that Danny will send you closer to your booking date.

The river is cold and refreshing and provides the most relaxing sound to sleep to.

Make sure you go on a day trip to Kanangra National park- Do the plateau walk and waterfall walk.

A big thank you to Danny,
Platypus Flat was a perfect getaway location, there was only my wife and myself along with our old dog Sam.
It was good to chat with Danny about his property and his future plans.
