About the host, Roger Fagan
Member since November 2016
After 48 years as owner of Cub Campers, I've now retired to my 200 acre farm on the banks of the Wollondilly River. With 4 km of river frontage there are many great campsites to choose from. I am proud to be the founder and President of the Australian Manufactured Camper Trailer Guild promoting quality Australian made campers and creating local jobs. The Guild was formed because of importers claiming Chinese campers as Australian made. Google AMCTG for more information.

Platypus Vally Riverside Camping sites preside amongst incredibly beautiful river and native bush land. The campsites are private and very peaceful and very well located. Thank you to hosts Beth & Roger for being so accomodating and for providing such a wonderful bush place to escape.

This was a dream spot! We had such a lovely time and will return many times I hope. Definitely needs some form of simple signage, as the detail instructions were good, but the last track was very tricky to find. Thanks for having us!

Great little spot, really tricky to find. Roger will save himself a lot of headaches from visitors by putting in a couple of signs. Aeroguard essential.

We stayed at the lovely Crossing Campsite next to a calm lagoon filled with reeds and ducks. Roger is a thoughtful host who has built a bush dunny and picnic tables for the site, provided dry kindling and some chopped wood to get us started with our campfire, and checked on us during the weekend.

Excellent off grid camping. Quiet riverside spot with water birds. Lots of available wood around for the fire pit. Friendly goose visited! 4WD needed for some site access. Shops are 30 mins away....

We had a great time at Platypus River. The weather was great, we had a nice spot next to the river and Roger was very helpful. It beats camping in public spots where you have no idea how many other campers will be huddled around your tent. We will definitely be back.

Great place to camp. Beautiful spot, not over crowded even at peak holiday time. Roger is a very welcoming host and we are already planning a return trip.
