New South Wales photos are lagging behind Queensland. So here are some from Knorrit Flat Riverside Retreat (http://www.knorritflatrr.com.au).

Looks lovely...

Would it be suitable for children?

How busy does it get - (got some relatives in Taree, might be nice to get down to see them without having to 'stay with them').

Cheers

Knorrit Flat is suitable for families though, as with any area that has water, care needs to be taken. You can camp close to the water or, I guess, up to 70m-80m away from it. There's a swimming hole, one or two places to fish for bass and eels, mens & womens flush toilets and gas hot showers, tank drinking water, a volleyball net (a little weathered) and a large under-cover picnic area. There are large areas for cricket, frisby and other games. Kids can ride bikes but other than back & forth on the track, there's not really anywhere to actually ride to.

When there's been rain inland and the river is up a bit, you can ride fun but docile rapids in a tube or inflatable boat. They're just rough enough to topple the occasional person out of their tube. You drive out of the camp area and head inland a couple of kilometres. Get dropped off by a driver and ride the river back.

The council limits them to 110 people. It's full during easter and christmas, though still not cramped for room. A bit of drinking takes place at those times but probably a little better than most places. At other times, it's not uncommon to have the entire eight acres to yourself. The office sells ice ($5.00/bag), drinks, ice creams & yoghurts, and hires canoes/kayaks.

Each campsite has a steel on-ground BBQ and the sites are massive - though when busy, it seems others may be allowed partially on your site! :x There are also seven pitfires. Firewood is provided for free for the purpose of cooking. But for a general bonfire, you either have to bring your own wood or buy from them (not too cheap).

It really is as green and luxuriant as they photos show. Prices are $10 per adult and about $5 per child. Day visitors are charged $10 per car (though large car loads have been known to be charged double).

Hope this helps.

That look like a very nice spot, reasonable rates too, very unusual for the Nth coast.

Might put that in POI :mrgreen:

Great pics too BTW.

Incidentally, it's about 50 minutes inland from Taree (though Wingham and Mount George).
