Enjoy the secluded and scenic splendour camping, caravanning or in a cabin on peaceful Three Waters and its uncrowded 560 acres of natural beauty, birdlife, flora and fauna.
Its serene ambience bounded by flowing creeks and river is a pleasant surprise to visitors when realized it is only 15km from the CBD of the historic Celtic Capital of Australia Glen Innes.
For tents, camper trailers or caravans there are numerous picturesque unpowered campsites and campfire places along the wide flowing creek bank and deep water areas of the Reddestone creek, with excellent swimming holes where often sizeable fish up to 48cm have been caught, and of course further down in the shallows at our fossicking area the gem hounds search for the elusive “Reddestone blue sapphire”.
For the campers and caravans requiring power, and only a short distance further up the bank from the creek are a number of powered sites and all camp and caravan sites are within walking distance of our excellent shower and toilet facilities known as the “Gunyah” (aboriginal for shelter). The Gunyah is a unique structure built from timber milled from our forest and features a huge dining and camp kitchen area, a bar (byo) and suitable for functions. There is a combustion fireplace, books, TV (cd and video only) and opens through double doors to a four metre wide veranda along its length set up with gas BBQs, tables, benches, and comfortable seating. It’s a great place to sit in the afternoon with a drink and watch the sunset over the distant range and forest. There are excellent shower s and toilet s areas as part of this facility.
Our blue horizon and pink sunset cabins are identical and feature a double bedroom, en-suite shower toilet, two bunks, kitchen dining area has electric stove/oven, microwave, electric jug and toaster and a night n day lounge which can be used as a single bed or two single or as a double bed. The cabins feature a wide covered veranda along their length and a gas BBQ with wide views over forest ranges and Bullock Mountain. Linen hire for bunks is available or byo.
Three Waters is popular with birdwatchers and bushwalkers, sapphire fossickers (equipment available for hire) and those who like to fish, and for the more adventurous we have our mountain, forest and river horse trail ride on our well trained horse suitable to all level of experience.
Many visitors use Three waters as a base to head out from to explore the numerous features of the World Heritage National Parks, the Standing Stones, the Stonehenge Balancing Rock, Land of the Beardie’s History House, Emmaville Mining Museum, Heritage walks and buildings, Celtic Country Tourist drives and of course a must see are the historic villages of Emmaville, Torrington and Deepwater, visit our hotels, restaurants, buy supplies at Coles or Woolies’ and all within an easy drive from their campsite or cabin.
We are pet friendly however pets are not allowed inside cabins or Gunyah facilities, and must be on a lead when walking the property, and tied up at night at camps or to cabin veranda posts, and clean up feces. They must not annoy other guests or disturb our horses.
