This site is a Pristine Riverfront property in Colo Valley. It is a tidal river with sandy shallow sandbars and 10ft deep swimming holes. There is an abundance of native animals here including kangaroos, lyre birds, lace monitors, platypus and more! Access is via a short dirt driveway to the riverfront camping area. The access is 2wd unless there has been significant rain it becomes 4wd access.

We have 3 powered sites with water available and can accommodate both large and small groups with sites just steps away from the river. We have built some new flushing toilets (2) with a hot water shower. Day trippers also allowed at $10 per day (book in extras) if they are not staying overnight.

We have 2 water entrances, one is a large grassed area with shallow water which is great for kids & families. The other entrance is a natural sandy entry with a deeper swimming area suitable for adults. We also have a beautiful lagoon area where I can arrange additional campers.

We are very accommodating if you pets. We welcome dogs and can host horses in one of the paddocks. Please ensure you contact the host prior to your stay if you are bringing any animals. 

We have canoes & floats which you can hire to paddle up the river. Additional activities here include fishing, swimming, bushwalking, canoeing & birdwatching. Our property is also great for large bookings. I’m happy to accomodate private parties if you message me direct. We are also only a 5 minute drive to Colo Riverside Cafe.

I sell fresh eggs from my chickens daily and we also have 2 beautiful brand new glamping tents that you can hire. Please see our extras.

I look forward to meeting you soon!kids under 5 free and $15 per day book in extras

Finding Lisa, and her beautiful spot on the Colo River, was like finding a treasure, and being her very first Hipcamp booking made our 3 days feel very special.
Lisa is a ball of happy energy, and a great host.... checking in on all of us every day.
Shady Acres is a hidden gem, peaceful, relaxing and the river was perfect for a cool off in the heat.

We will definitely be back.

Thank you Lisa. We had a wonderful stay

Gorgeous spot by the river. Lots of space to spread out while still ensuring plenty of privacy. Great communal area. Lisa was very friendly and welcoming and nothing was a problem. Great fresh eggs too. Will definitely be coming back.

Lisa’s campsite was amazing for a private party. It’s right on the water, is enormous, beautiful and complete with a brand new (hot!) shower and toilets. Lisa was a fantastic host and provided us with firewood, a teepee, fairy lights, bunting and even 2 large tents when it started to rain. We were able to decorate the place however we wanted (festival style) and have a giant bonfire to dance around at night. We were also able to make noise without it impacting the neighbours because we were in a valley. We had the best time and will definitely be back! Thoroughly recommend for any group parties, you’ll love it!
