GORDON COUNTRY CAMPING, CABINS & CARAVANS.
The Gordon Country Way..
Gordon Country in the Goomburra Valley is a private eco-tourism property offering camping, cabin & caravan stays. Our property borders on the Great Dividing Range and incorporates large beautiful reaches of rain forest into the Heritage listed Main Range National Park. Having been passed on through generations, we continue to operate in a sustainable manner, working in harmony and synergy with nature and the magnificent countryside we treasure. It’s important to us, as is the heritage we are proud of.
Come and enjoy the authentic family friendly rustic getaways we offer and choose from a range of campsites and cabins like no other. Imagine letting your children explore the freedom of the Australian outback while you revel in adventure activities or just relax and unwind! Bring your 4 legged family members as well – they are so welcome.
With kilometres of 4WD, biking and horse tracks – adventure is definitely built into every stay. Hike, fish, or pack up your back pack and put on your walking shoes to enjoy some of the most beautiful scenery and tracks Mother Nature can provide. CATCH a fish or two for dinner, why not! Just to give you an idea of a Gordon Country experience – here’s a great montage of a recent family weekend created by our guest Brian Williams and published with our gratitude – GORDON COUNTRY WEEKEND
