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.

Private, secluded & amazing views

This camp was private, secluded & scenic. Cleared large site with grass (like a lawn) and flat. We loved that we had the whole site to ourselves.
Beautiful views from our camp of paddocks and hills and the river right in front of us. The water was a shallow but our dog certainly loved it! Would be good to just sit in it with a drink.
Chris & Sally were fantastic hosts and will spend as little or as much time with you as you want. Did a farm tour with Chris and showed us their beautiful property. He showed us a fossil site where we could search for fossils.
Close to Gloucester township (10mins), we bought fresh eggs from a property just before Chris & Sallys and there was a vineyard close by as well. Would highly recommend a stay here, we will be back again for sure

Chris was a fantastic host, very friendly, accomodating and easy to get along with.

This camping spot is fantastic, set amongst a picturesque creek surrounded by cows and green.

We lit a fire and relaxed, exactly what we were after.

Had such a fantastic weekend at Riverrock, Chris and Sally were both really helpful prior to and during our stay.
The camping spot is fantastic right on the river and a safe spot for the kids to swim and explore. Views from the top of the property were also amazing. Highlight for our boys was the fossil hunting with Chris who was kind enough to show us around the property and some of its hidden treasures.
We'll definitely be back and look forward to seeing you again.
Give Duke a pat for us as he walked us all the way to the gate when we left.

Sensational spot

We absoutely loved this spot. Peaceful and secluded, the picturesque riverside camp spot has everything nature provides. Lovely canopy of the trees along the river bank provides shade till mid afternoon on the well maintained grassy campsites
We camped alone and had the exclusive use of the whole site yet there is enough room for friends if you have a group.
To have only the sound of a running river to go to sleep by is therapeutic and just what any camper would enjoy. Coffee in the mornings tastes all the better with a view like this.
Chris and Sally are the ultimate hosts, perfect directions, came down to check if we had everything, need anything and told us about the Property and the town. The drive up to the Ridge hosts spectacular views and we enjoyed the sunset and happy hour up there.
We will be back time and time again.

Opportunity to drive up to the summit to see across the valley
Welcoming hosts and friendly dog that comes to say hello
Great place, will be coming back for another visit

This place was awesome! Chris, our host, couldn't be more helpful. We had a tour around the property & saw amazing views. The river was great fun with swimming, floating down the rapids, kayaking, fishing and just cooling off. Our two border collies loved the area and the water. The river was easy to access and there was plenty of shade to camp under. You can do as much or as little as you like. We would highly recommend Riverrock and can't wait to go back.

Lovely property. Grassy flat camp-site all to ourselves, fire pit, toilet and a beautiful fresh river to swim in. Only a short drive to town, a terrific winery next door and freedom to explore the incredible landscape. Will be returning for sure.
