We loved our two nights at an unpowered site at Cania Retreat. The new owners were very helpful and keen to make it a pleasant stay. Very convenient to be so close to the walks into the gorge. Really enjoyed the spectacular scenery and birdlife.”


was really impressed by the park which is encapsuled by large cliffs, caves, walking tracks, large trees and the constant sight and sound of a menagerie of birds and insects. The park itself is wonderful … Really looking forward to my next trip, five 🌟


Great camp ground. Friendly king parrots, accommodating staff, beautiful murals on the cabins. Bush walking trails at your doorstep, lots of room for campers, room for kids to play, kick balls, two pools, good camp kitchen.
