Riverview is the perfect spot to stay if you’re looking for peace and tranquillity with river views, fishing, swimming and canoeing in a friendly laid back country town that is steeped in history. Gayndah is Queensland’s oldest country town and the citrus capital.
Riverview Caravan Park is located completely off the highway with no passing traffic although still conveniently positioned within walking distance to the heart of town.
The park is pet friendly and offers powered and unpowered sites suitable for tents, camper trailers, caravans and motorhomes as well as large drive through sites for those with big rigs. There is plenty of shade around the park and most of the grassed or slab sites offer river frontage or views. The well maintained park is clean and tidy with all the standard facilities including, a kiosk, free BBQ, camp kitchen, town water and an onsite dump point. There are two amenities blocks, one that has been recently updated and the second one in the process.The full list of facilities are listed below.
Should you want to spend a night out of the van, or need a nice relaxing place to catch up with family and friends who don’t own a caravan, Riverview can help with onsite vans and a range of basic cabins, en-suite cabins, duplex units and lodge rooms to suit all styles and budgets.
It’s not just the position of the park that will make you want to stay a while longer, it’s the relaxed atmosphere with so much at your fingertips to make your stay a pleasant one. Enjoy a relaxing walk through town and take in the scenery and history. Walk along the rivers edge, do some fishing, hire a paddle board or go canoeing. The park is only 3 mins from the boat ramp where you can enjoy water skiing, jet-skiing and more.
