Kiah Wilderness Camp

New South Wales

About the property
A beautiful spacious level grassy campsite on the Towamba River, a pristine estuary that runs into Twofold Bay. 10 minutes on bitumen south of Eden and close to many of the Sapphire Coast's stunning coastline, National Parks and attractions.

Fish the river for flathead or bream and enjoy it for dinner by the campfire. Book a kayak tour or just enjoy a swim in the clear sandy-bottom river.

Please note we have NO facilities as the campsite has been subject to flooding in the past. There is NO toilet so you must have a chemical toilet. Once you have booked please check the specific arrival directions we have given you to find us (located via your account in 'My Trips').

Rates are from $10 adults, $5 kids. Dogs by arrangement. There is fresh drinking water available and fire wood included (collect your own kindling, plenty around)..

Beautiful place to camp. Loved having the place to ourselves. Loved camping on grass instead of dirt! The kayak tour was fantastic.

Absolutely beautiful location. The perfect spot to camp with our little kids who loved playing in the river. Also only a short drive to the beach. Jenny and Arthur were very welcoming.

Very relaxing and peaceful place. Great campsite on flat land right by a beautiful river. It is on the list to visit again

Pleasant grassy spot with a good fireplace and plenty of wood. Enjoyed the birds in the morning. Lovely river, but the camping experience would be much greater if the camping paddock was more open with views to the river which was hidden out of sight from our tent.

Jenny has a paradise at Eden! A large grassed flat area to choose where to pitch the camper, alongside the most pristine swimmable river (wade to beach at low tide) with bellbirds and maggies calling from surrounding bush all day, fresh water from a tank, fire pit and wood. Quite, private, sublime.

A fantastic location surrounded by wildlife including wombats, wild deer, kangaroos and birdlife. Great place to take a canoe or trip into Eden or take in the ben Boyd national Park. Our host Jenny made us very welcome and we totally enjoyed our stay. WE will return! Vic and Virginia

Amazing well kept amphitheatre of a site, alongside a serene tidal river, teaming with wildlife. Location is a great launch point to see the area. Perfect hidden location, loved our stay and will return whenever we can, thank you so much for having us :)
