Travel south through Herbert for 3km then turn west onto Breakneck Road. Only 1km further and you will find Herbert Forest Camping Ground a basic but beautiful camp. The grounds are well groomed and the ...More many camp sites are on two levels amongst lovely stately trees. Just 25 power sites but easy to find your own secluded spot. The facilities are basic but clean and tidy with new showers and toilets, washing machine and a cosy kitchen/dining with hotplates and fridge. A rose garden has been planted in the front of these facilities. Scattered around the spacious grounds are wood braziers. Plenty to do here - in peace and quiet you can listen to the birds, kayak on the river which has safe swimming for the children or take one of the many walking tracks. A dump station is available.

Hi, we do not have a cabin available. Try Riverside Haven Lodge & Holiday Park nearby to us. Thanks, Mark & Kim
