Had an awesome stay at Anna & Rudi's place. Beautiful clean flowing river great for a cool off for both adults & kids. Heaps of space between campers and lovely grassed area to the river & just so peaceful. Firewood & drums supplied were a welcome surprise. Anna & Rudi are the most lovely hosts you will meet, so is Molly the dog. Will be back.

Hubby, myself and our two doggo’s had the most relaxing little holiday. The combination of the tranquil surroundings, pristine tidy campsite and the most accommodating hosts Anna and Rudy makes this a hidden gem. The fresh flowing river was beautiful to have a dip in on the hot days. 4wd recommended if weather has been wet. And you must be self contained. NO toilets at this site and no digging holes or using the river. We cannot wait to come back. It definitely wasn’t goodbye when we left. It’s “we will definitely see you later”.

Awesome time spent there. Such a nice patch with good shade and a nice stream. So close to the weir as well. One recommendation would be for a toilet at $30 a night. Otherwise would come back :)

Absolutely amazing stay! Anna and Rudy are incredible hosts on an incredible piece of land.
We set our area up just under the huuuuge 150 y/o tree in the meadow.
Fire pit and firewood available on the meadow. Bring your own toilet - no digging - they’re $50 from Bunnings 😊
Beautiful morning swim in the creek! We caught an eel and saw a turtle swimming by.
Can’t speak highly enough of this place. Anna will meet you out the front and take you down to the meadow when you arrive. Had a fish at the weir too just down the road! You can swim, kayak, bike ride ect just a short drive/medium walk away. Will be back as soon as we can and look forward to another coffee (and wine 😉) with Rudy and Anna on our next camp.

Such a terrific spot. We have been before and will definitely be back again. Anna & Rudi are terrific hosts.
The site is best suited for a group of families as it is one large open area. Perfectly mowed, near level grass site, with a gentle slope down to the river.
The kids loved floating down the river, rolling down the grass bank, skimming rocks and making mud pies.
Perfect fire pit, nice shade trees.
There is a lot of bird life and the neighboring cows can be heard in the mornings.
A really lovely secluded little spot. :)

We had an absolutely brilliant week long stay at Anna and Rudy’s. Beautiful grassed area right on the river. Anna and Rudy were super friendly and inviting and the two camp sites were perfect. Thanks so much!

Anna and Rudi are the most hospitable hosts we have met. They take great pride in ensuring their guests have a relaxing stay and we could not have asked for a better stay. The site is clean and well maintained with lots of extras thrown in for good measure. Thank you so much for having us.
