This caravan park has always appealed to me, and I know why, because it set in amongst the huge granite boulders that are common in this area.

The park is set on 40acres, has a 79 year old Church on the property, a permanent stream, and many tracks which I enjoyed following. At dawn and dusk, the Rabbits and Kangaroo's were out grazing.

We had a powered site for the night, which cost $30 for 2 people. The showers were hot, but there was not much room to move to dry yourself. I checked out the camp kitchen, where a Television is located, that looked ok. Wooden bbq's were scattered around the site. Being set well back off the main highway, meant that it was quite quiet at night.

There were Cottages and Cabins available for hire too.

In Summer, there would be plenty of shade, as the tall Poplars would be in leaf, in Autumn, it would be pretty with their leaves turning gold.

We had a good stay here, and would return

Directions: On the Tenterfield side of Glen Innes, look for the signpost, and the Pine tree lined driveway.

      The you will love Iceland - we´ve got a lot of big boulders here. I wish we had enough time to visit North-Iceland, that area is amazing!
