Spend a little time in paradise at the Paradise Valley Camping Park. The campgrounds are set in a picturesque, hilly countryside on the banks of the Macalister River, the Gateway to the Alpine National Park.
Boasting fresh country air, an abundance of bird and wildlife along with peace and tranquillity makes Paradise Valley the ideal spot for the whole family to spend some one on one time with nature. You will enjoy swimming, canoeing, fishing and other water fun in the river that flows through the property.
The campground is pet friendly and the sites are ‘free range’ style so you will be sure to find the perfect spot to set up. The large sites are nestled amongst the gum trees on the banks of the river and offer plenty of shade for tents and caravan camping right up to biggest of rigs. Many of the sites follow the curve of the river, meaning you can wake up to the sounds of the wildlife, take a refreshing dip or watch the water while enjoying your morning cuppa.
There are only 12 powered sites available for those who want power, with all sites having easy access to the well maintained amenities that include hot showers an outdoor sink and an undercover BBQ area. There is also a dump point onsite, and ice, gas and firewood are available for purchase from the main office.
New owners Steve and Cheryle Bourne, purchased the property 6 months ago and provide you with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and everything you would want from a stay in the country. They also have cabins available if you want to catch up with family and friends who aren’t the avid camper, or if you’re looking for a comfortable place to rest away from the hustle and bustle. Cabins are situated opposite the river and sleep up to 4 and 5 people.
Paradise Valley is such a beautiful destination and you will love the wide open spaces where you can walk with the dog to the top of the hill and take in the amazing view of the surrounding country side. The tranquillity is stunning and it’s the perfect place to enjoy the outdoors. A fun place for the children with lazy river rides along a man-made section and plenty of wildlife along the banks.
