Our best spot for camping with tents. If you have a small camp trailer this site is also great although you will need to reverse out of the site and the gate is narrow. If you are confident at reversing then go ahead and book this site as it is the closest site we have to the river and has beautiful views.  Our next best site is The Lookout.

Our best spot for camping with tents. If you have a small camp trailer this site is also great although you will need to reverse out of the site and the gate is narrow. If you are confident at reversing then go ahead and book this site as it is the closest site we have to the river and has beautiful views.  Our next best site is The Lookout. 

(Note: If you have a caravan, RV, camp trailer or other please check out our other beautiful site with water views called "The Lookout".)

From the photos you'll see this site is a short, easy stroll to the river where there are shady spots to set up and spend the day by the waters edge. 

Nestled in an open, spacious grassy pine grove this camp site offers plenty of room to spread out and a lovely mix of sun and shade. 

This camp spot is located just inside the gate leading to the river.  It is our closest site to the amazing swimming hole with it's sandy beach, gentle rapids and magnificent rock. 

Children / teenagers are $5 each per night. 

We recognise the Kamilaroi/Gomeroi people as the traditional custodians of this land.

This is a beautiful site not too far from Manilla and the hostess Caroline is absolutely lovely. Easy access with just a bit of steep dirt down to the riverside campsites. The swimming hole is huge with soft sandy banks and there's gentle rapids and shallower parts for non swimmers. The campsite was lovely and close to the water with river views and the sound of the water running to help you sleep. Lots of birdlife.
We took our two young border collies and they had a most excellent adventure.

An absolutely beautiful location offering a little bit of everything. We enjoyed exploring the property and river system, going for a swim and paddle, chilling and hammocks, relacing with a great view and more. There was an abundance of wildlife including rainbiw honeyeaters which was a delight to see as well. Caroline is extremely helpful and welcoming. Will definitely look at booking again.

Unique country – amazing waterhole

This is a unique corner of regional NSW, with dry rolling hills and beautiful native pines. You could shoot a western here; the country is stunning.

The campsite itself is even better. Soft green grasses, well shaded by the pines, panoramic views of the river, and a short walk down to the swimming hole, which is deep and broad, and fringed by a sandy beach.

Caroline is a terrific host: thoughtful, generous and committed to ensuring we had a great time, which we did. We had young kids, who had a blast playing by the river all day, but it's also a great spot for couples to unwind on one of the lovely sites (all the sites are shaded and picturesque).

Highly recommended.

Hi Aaron. Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I've never thought of it like that! A "western style" with an "aussie twist!" with the gum trees. 😊 It was heartwarming to read your review and we are so grateful for your support and appreciation of our little piece of paradise. And it's so great to hear the kids loved it just as much as the adults. Thank you so much. Looking forward to your next visit and hopefully I might get to meet you all next time.
