West Kunderang Recreational Retreat

Private Campground - New South Wales


Located on West Kunderang, a cattle property privately owned by the McRae family, along the riverine escarpment, between Armidale and Kempsey, north-eastern NSW.  Totally surrounded by the Oxley Wild Rivers National Park, World Heritage listed for its Dry Rainforest Ecosystems and Rugged Gorge Vistas, the retreat offers access to the pristine waters of the Macleay River, with a myriad of recreational activities and relaxing interludes!  Limited camping accommodation is available.

Bookings are essential and key collection is arranged the day before you enter West Kunderang.  Please confirm your booking by phone. (Internet service is not available at West Kunderang and we are not able to receive your online booking while we are at the retreat.)

Each campsite is separate and self-contained for ultimate privacy, with its own toilet, water tank, picnic table, sink and fire pit (with swinging BBQ plate/grate/billy hook arm). Firewood is also provided.

Activities here include fishing, bushwalking, 4WDriving and canoeing.

West Kunderang is accessible to offroad caravans and camper-trailers up to 18ft. Conventional caravans are restricted to a length of 16ft.

Please bear in mind the last 4kms into “West” is a steep cutting with sharp corners and deep dish drains. As you can see photos on their website, the latter considerations did not phase some of the more avid adventurers visiting “West”. These visitors were rewarded with the level and well-shaded “Cedar Trees” campsite.

For visitors with larger more conventional caravans, or for those who feel the road is not suitable, we suggest leaving your van in Armidale at the Caravan Park on the Grafton Road/ Waterfall Way. This is heading in the right direction for a comfortable day-visit to “West”. There are BBQ’s, with wood supplied, as well as picnic tables, for your use. Over-night tent camping is an alternative option.

Please ask if you wish to bring your pet.  It is primarily a working cattle station, pets may not be allowed at certain times of the year as their prescence conflicts with station management practices.  At other times, they are welcome but must be leashed/caged and supervised especially at feeding times.
