Camping

If you love to simply pitch a tent and ‘rough it’ for a weekend, or you prefer the comfort of a powered site – it’s all here at Gordon Country. Enjoy Goomburra Valley’s beautiful natural landscapes, from lush rainforest to bush, large grassy plains, and pristine, freshwater creeks.

We welcome you to arrive and explore before settling on a place to set up. Whilst you can book a location upon booking, we don’t want you to be locked into a particular site in case you want to change your mind! With so many amazing options, you’ll be excited by the choices! Even your dog will love it!

Freshwater creeks boasting shallow and deep water holes provide an ideal spot for everything from catching yabbies, to cooling off after a big day of horse riding (conditions apply), hiking or 4W driving.

For those who have not been to Gordon Country, it is hard to fathom just how many sites there are, and the size of those sites. Campsites are all based around the beautiful freshwater creek which meanders for kilometers through the rugged mountains and countryside.

For Conventional Vehicles

If you don’t have a 4WD or you require the convenience of facilities close by, we suggest The Cottage Site that has 22 powered sites. Look out for the first lot of camping signs that are approximately half a kilometer down the gravel road. The Black Cockatoo Site is a further kilometre down which is also a great option if you have a conventional car.

If however, you really want to get away from other guests, and have a porta pottie, we suggest Bull Hole, Banshee Junction, the Festival Site or Bowerbird. These are all well marked and on the creek and easily accessible even if you don’t have a car suitable for going off road.

How do I pick a Campsite?

Our website, for practicality reasons, only highlights a few of the possible camping sites you might choose however below are a few tools to help you navigate the many campsites!

  • Cottage Camp Site – hot showers and toilets plus disabled shower and toilet. Our site office and Shop is also located here.
  • Banshee Valley (first flat)- septic toilet block

Gordon Country advises that they are currently building to bridges over creek crossings, making many more sites, including the Banshee Valley more readily accessible by the majority of caravans.

This is expected to be completed by 31 August 2014. All campers must register at the site office located at the Cottage Camp site (where we run the shop). In the event of an emergency, we can make sure we account for everyone, which is a council requirement. Guests are also required to remove their rubbish when they leave.

How will I find my friends?

Gordon Country has no mobile phone reception! For those meeting friends, it is critical to register with us on arrival and let us know where you are camped. If friends are coming in late, we recommend a pre-arranged meeting site or otherwise use UHF facilities to talk to one another.
