Wandering Glampers

Camped at #2. Nice spot in the bush. Room for a few cars easy. River is 200m away with a neat path there. Very peaceful spot. We got a 18" offroad van in here. It's very tight in parts and a few washouts to get through. Wouldn't recommend it if your worried about scratches or not confident with 4x4ing with your van on. Ig. @wanderingglampers


Organised Chaos

We booked number 2, which wasn't right on the water so we ended up camping right on the river where there is a spot for people to put boats in. 2 offroad caravans fitted nicely and it was heaps nicer than where number 2 spot is.
