The Bush camp at the bottom of the campsite is thatched, wooden and particularly rustic. It is positioned perfectly between the trees and a huge Yellowwood, right on the river. It is cool and shaded but gets the best of the afternoon sun just in time for sundowners.

The bush camp has survived a number of floods contributing to its weather worn look and the interesting slant the building has developed over the years. Looks are deceptive however - The bush camp is sturdy and comfortable, making it the perfect getaway for relaxing to the sound of flowing water and bird song.

The unit has a small open deck with a table, chairs and 2 plate gas stove and kettle. Three stairs lead up into a single room with 2 big windows from which to view the forest. It has a double and single bed. There is a cupboard containing pots and pans, crockery and cutlery for 4 people. There is also an electric light and a plug point for charging electronics.
