  • We hired a cabin for the night and it was so cute! The wooden balcony overlooking the landscape was magnificent. Loved swimming in the weir, feeding the rock wallabies and seeing the beautiful peacock...  read more »

  • What an incredible experience with all the wild life. Wild rock wallabies to feed and pat, chickens, peacocks, pigs and a few more. The grounds are vast and if you can live without a power outlet, the unpowered sites along the gorge are truly beautiful. The public areas are extremely basic and most certainly need a revamp. It's all clean, but there is a lack of fridges and hot plates and the usual things, especially for a camp ground of that size. There is no WiFi but mobile coverage (Optus, others I do not know) is excellent.
  • Great campspot, lots of grassy areas situated under pine trees and next to a freshwater creek. Good amenities
  • This place is stunning!!! The scenery is awesome. Some of the best I have seen in Australia! Huge boulders, watering holes, swimming, fantastic walks. And the wild life prolific. Even have free range chickens and turkeys and peacocks. And you can stay! Very reasonable prices for powered or non powered sites.Great hot showers and amenities block and kitchens. One of the best. I would have given this 5stars except for one thing. I am a nature lover and this is a NATURE Park. I dont want to see things in cages! I hate zoos. I like to see wildlife in their natural habitat. They have several cages here with caged cockatoos and other birds and lizards. If they cannot be set free then I would appreciate a notice as to why. In which case more eco friendly, less barren cages would be awesome. I went to one eco park where there was one HUGE cage with trees and grass and nature inside. And they all lived together. Everything else- great.
  • Great nature walk, stunning George, and up and close with the wallabies.
  • nice place to go... but they should not allow pets!
