Want a quick isolated camping getaway ?
The Gorge Station is located 75km north west from Grafton, northern NSW. This working cattle station lies on the banks of the upper reaches of the Clarence River with 10kms of river frontage. Hidden in various mountain range shadows, surrounded by National Parks and several State forests it is a hidden getaway that is unspoilt, yet is ever changing from yearly floods that demands respect from the huge catchment area above. This isolated camping destination provides home to a host of flora and fauna within its boundaries. This region has a large and secluded wilderness area with a rugged and scenic river system that provides a habitat for an extensive bird and animal population. It has limited facilities so you need to be well-equipped.
CAMPING & THINGS TO DO
With nearly 10kms of river frontage there are a host of camping spots, from secluded areas to large sections where small groups can hold up, there is also the option to hire ‘’The Cabin”, for those who desire a few small luxury’s. The campsites have either river access or river views, yet are set in a way where they are well enough away from your camping neighbours for privacy. There are several portable toilets at several camping locations, hot showers and flushing toilets are located at the Gorge Homestead. The owner provides a great service supplying a general waste bin at most camping locations as well as a ‘bucket’, where food scraps are placed for his pet pig- Freezer !!. A new addition to camping locations are the new and improved portable fire drums, as well as a daily supply of fire wood. The kids will love this place as there are plenty of opportunities to explore this unspoilt environment from camping, fishing, 4wding and bushwalking, photography and just getting back to nature. They can catch turtles, skim rocks across the river and the Gorge is dog friendly.
