Newnes Hotel Cabins & Camping (Wolgan Valley)


3.7 from 4 users


COVID-19 UPDATE - Limited bookings for camping and cabins will be available from September 2020 onwards. Imagine a place without mobiles. A place with no TV. A place without distractions. A place where you can just 'be'. This is us - a very special place. Switch off and enjoy undisturbed time with your family or friends. Our campground is the riverflat before you come to the Newnes Hotel. There is also free camping at the National Park just down the road from us. Our campsites have access to the river and there is plenty of space for the kids to run around and kick a ball. There are fire places and we sell fire wood at the Hotel Kiosk. Camping guests use our shower and toilet block and they are welcome to use the covered BBQ and Pizza oven area. The Pizza oven needs to be booked in advance and charges apply. It takes 5 hours and 2 wheelbarrows of wood to heat it up. The campsites are not powered. Showers cost $5 to offset the $52,000 it cost us to build this facility. Our Shower and Toilet Block has made camping at Newnes a much more comfortable experience. We treasure the peace and quiet of Newnes. Most of our guests join the relaxed rhythm of nature. If you need to party til late - please do not come to Newnes...and please no generators after 8pm , and no 'brum-brums' any time !

Beautiful little camp ground we ended up staying in as the free national parks one was booked out. $25 per vehicle for the first night. A bit disappointing that the fee didn't include a shower which was another $5pp on top of that so it's really $35pn for two people unpowered with a shower which is pretty steep. Lots of birdlife around and next to a scenic little creek. Make sure you do the ruins walk, it was fascinating.

Opened again for camping in September - beautiful valley! Thomas and his team have plenty of information about the walks and history of the area. Hotel only a kiosk but has a great museum. Clean tidy camp. Each night you stay gets cheaper $25 for first night, $40 for two nights, $50 for three nights. Nice to find someone knowledgeable about the Wolgan Valley and preserving the relics of the old shale oil mine.



Closed at the moment. Lots of signs stating closed no entry.
