We have only been here once and that was on a long weekend. Was a little busy but overall really friendly folk and not a dog fight to be seen. If you don't like dogs then this may not be the place for you, but if you do you will love it. Everyone seems pretty responsible cleaning up after their... More

It hadn't rained for quite some time but we had to park in mud and slop through mud to our cabin. There was no choice because there is no concrete pad or tracks to park on and not even a load of gravel to take the slop out of the mud. The cabin had to be 25 years old and... More

My husband and I love this place. We've been with family and been with friends on many occasions. The scenery on the drive in is absolutely beautiful. We always camp when we stay and it is right on the river. It is Dog friendly which we love and they love it too. Have never had an issue with staff. They... More

Roughly 3 hours north of Sydney lies the perfect bush retreat; you see the smoke from the restaurant fireplace curling up into the sky before you see the main buildings themselves. It's early Friday afternoon when my husband and dog Harley arrive at this rustic mountain retreat that caters to dogs, families, groups & couples. We've booked the River Spa... More

We stayed in one of the park cabins over the Raw Challenge weekend and found it a comfortable convenient place to stay. The reception staff were very pleasant and helpful. At a less busy time it could be very pleasant with the river 1 minute away and lots of activities available. The park cabins are small and basic with double... More

Stayed here for the Raw Challenge in one of the rooms and loved it. The setting and atmosphere of the place is peaceful and tranquil, definitely makes you feel calm and at ease. Had no cooking facilities in our room so we had to BBQ everything but that just added to the experience and enjoyment. The kiosk and restaurant are... More

Excellent access and facilities. Plenty of activities to entertain the kids. It is pet friendly right down to the water bowls in the dining area. Only down fall was the undeniable smell of wet dogs. Resultant, cafe and shop where all excellent. A+

This place has so many options for a great holiday. We stayed in the hotel style rooms and found them well appointed. My parents bought their motor home and had just as nice a stay. There are plenty of activities right on sight plus the many walking tracks in the mountains. The only down side is it can be tricky... More

Just got back from a weekend at Riverwood Downs. Beautiful place but not a great road in, over 10ks on a dirt. Camp sites were nice and tidy with running water but quite small. It was busy being school holidays but it felt quite crowded. Good amenities. Great dining options with the kiosk, cafe and restaurant. We had breakfast in... More

We had Really exceptional service from everyone there. It is As Dog friendly as it gets. The Farm visit was really touching with timing just right for the 3 week old piglets and New calves. Kids liked the canoeing and the 5km trek. Horse riding left for next time
