Perched beside the river, this campsite is exclusive to one group and can fit a maximum or 4 caravans, or 5 tents. Enjoy complete privacy and peace, your own swimming hole, and spectacular views of the Bucketts Mountains. 

From our property, Rock On, there is so much to explore in the immediate area, including bush walking trails, fossil hunting, spotting koalas, bike trails and more. Hike up to the ridge, the perfect spot for storm watching or stargazing. Just 5 - 10 minutes drive down the road is a fantastic vineyard plus the popular Hillview Herb Farm, that serves woodfired pizzas and hosts interesting farm tours and events regularly. As the sun sets, watch the stunning colours descend over the Bucketts Mountains. Our 335 acre Beef Cattle farm is just 11 minutes to Gloucester. In town, you'll find golf clubs, canoe and bike hire, as well as essentials such as the supermarket. 

We welcome pets but ask that you please keep them on a lead at all times. Campers will need to be self-contained with their own shower and toilet. There is an old portaloo, but we request that campers dispose of the waste correctly themselves. 

Campfires are permitted in the designated fire pit when restrictions/bans are not in place. We have firewood available to purchase on site. 

IMPORTANT: As we are on the banks of a river, if there is exceptionally heavy rain, we may need to relocate you. There will be a property manager on site at all times keeping an eye on the weather.

Had a great couple of days at Riverrock. Chris has set up a beautiful site by the river. The new & very clean porta loo & shower makes for a very civilised experience. Chris took us for a tour of his amazing property and we went fossil hunting. Unfortunately the weather was pretty ordinary and we didn't get a chance to do any more exploration of the property.
Can't wait to return. Thanks Chris !
Cheers,
Michael & Paula

What a beautiful place to stay! A lovely flat campsite right next to the river, would be a great place for a dip in summer! We had a very relaxing stay, but there is plenty to do in the area including a winery close by, lots to explore on the property & very close to Gloucester if you want supplies or to go out for lunch.
Chris & Sally were great hosts, greeting us on arrival, checking if we needed anything, bringing wood we purchased & letting us know the history of the property. They have amazing plans for the place. It will be fabulous to cook a pizza in the outdoor oven & view the stars from the great deck on the hill.
We will be back, very soon!!

What an amazing property.
Chris and Sally were the ultimate hosts taking the time to show us around the property so we could make the most out of our stay.
Exceptional communication leading up to our stay with both weather and property access updates to make sure we were happy to proceed in what appeared to be less than ideal weather conditions.
As it turned out we had great weather and were able to enjoy River Rick to it’s fullest.
The site was amazing. Picturesque, flat, very well maintained and secluded with absolute riverfront camping. Large fire pit with BBQ plates etc available to use.
The shower/ toilet upgrade is a must! What a great idea. Super hot showers with great water pressure too. Well worth the small fee for the comfort it provides.
Chris delivered us a load of firewood for a small fee which was more wood than we could have burned in 3 nights.
Fossicking for fossils was great fun but was unfortunately cut short due to a weather front.
Absolute must do activity is the wine tasting next door. What a great afternoon! John was a real character and the wines were delicious.
There is so much to see and do in the area and Chris is very knowledgeable and helpful with suggestions on the best way to fill in your stay.
Can’t recommend this site highly enough.
Both property and hosts were first class all the way. Only got home this afternoon and have already booked a return visit.
Thanks Chris, Sally and Adam. For an amazing weekend.

2nd incredible stay at river rock!

We had another fantastic stay with Chris and Sally at River Rock. The site is still immaculate and now has an amazing hot shower system on offer. This time we mentioned to Chris that we'd like to check out the vineyard across the river and Chris kindly offered to book us in and drop us off. We had a super fun afternoon with John and Kate at Gloucester River Wines with tastings and a cheese platter (all for $10!!). The wine was delicious and very fairly priced, and the company was even better. John took us for a tour around their property and was more than happy for us to bring along the pooch for the afternoon. All in all another amazing visit, thanks guys!

The platter that John and Kate prepared for us during the tasting. John from Gloucester River Wines (across the river from the campsite) introducing our pup to his very friendly cows!The walk back from the winery. Someone enjoying the view from the campsite

RiverRock is an hydillic riverside campsite with beautiful freshly mowed green grass to set up camp and majestic casuarinas shading the river banks. The location is absolutely stunning, with the iconic Bucketts as a backdrop while the campground offers total privacy, as it is exclusive to only one group at a time. The camping area is huge and could easily accommodate a few families camping together.
Chris is extremely helpful and friendly and took us a tour of his property, which offers amazing views of the surrounding countryside and mountain ranges in the distance.
We really enjoyed our time at River Rock and can't wait to return for a longer stay next time !
