Our stay at Down by the Hawkesbury was brilliant. The place and experience far exceeded expectations. Photos cannot do this place justice.

Megan was extremely responsive and helpful when we had both tent and car troubles. So welcoming and lovely also.

A great location for a group get away. Would highly recommend.

Our family of 4 and our 2 Border Collies had such a fun time here. Pulled our van straight up to the site and only used it for sleeping as we spent most of our time enjoying the undercover area or having a dip in the river. Access to the river is a little steep in case you had anyone with mobility issues but certainly no issues for us. Loved it so much we have already booked again. Hosts were incredibly friendly and lovely and we loved the private position and best of all, having our furry friends with us. Beats van parks ANY day!

Down by the Hawkesbury was perfect for our group! The host Megan was very welcoming and accommodating and was easy to contact with questions. The site had plenty of grass for our tents and also a great covered area which kept us dry and comfortable during a big storm. The small toilet and shower were clean and all we needed during our stay and it was great to have water frontage to enjoy the river during the day. Id definitely come back if I ever hold a similar event!

Awesome spot for the weekend getaway. Made pizzas in the wood fired oven. Very friendly and accommodating hosts and great for a chat. And if you forgot anything, the local township is only a 5 minute drive.

Wow. If your party people this ain’t the place for you . Megan Trevor Snoopy and Fenton were the best . Welcomed at the gates by dogs are the best way to start a holiday . We had 6 days with multiple people and dogs arriving and going over the new year period in the middle of downpours and hail. It didn’t matter as we were snug as a bug in the camp kitchen with an open fire on the river. Give yourself a treat . Hosts are next level and it’s only for those that appreciate what they get for the dollar that will get it. Defiantly returning according to the kids( and dog)
