Camping Two Hours From Sydney Wollondilly River Station

Camping two hours from Sydney? Yes there is camping two hours from Sydney in a bush setting on a river in the beautiful Southern Highlands of NSW Australia on the Wollondilly River off Wombeyan Caves Road. You follow the picturesque Wombeyan Caves Road from Mittagong deep into the heart of the Wollondilly Rivers’ valley to reach Wollondilly River Station at Goodmans Ford. Wollondilly River Station straddles the Wollondilly River on both sides. It is full of natural beauty and rugged terrain.

  • Camp fires (depending upon weather and restrictions)
  • Riverside camping
  • Pets welcome
  • Swimming & canoeing
  • Bushwalking & mountain biking

We have just returned from camping at Wollondilly River Station for four days over the Australia Day weekend. It is a fantastic location. We took our dog Graciee with us for her first camping experience and she was great. She had a really good time of it and was a completely different dog to what she is at home. It’s a great place to camp with your dog and there were many families there and everyone was having an absolute ball. The river is fantastic for swimming and the facilities are more than enough for what you need. We can’t wait to come back for another stay.

How To Get To Wollondilly River Station

To get there you need to follow Wombeyan Caves Road from the Mittagong end. Wombeyan Caves road is all dirt, usually well maintained although it is very tight and has lots of hairpin bends and has a steep dropoff on one side for most of the way. It’s easily driven in a 2WD vehicle when it’s dry, but if it rains it is not advisable.

You are ok towing a small offroad van, but anything over say about 17 feet in length and you would not attempt it. Long motorhomes, fifth wheelers, that kind of thing sorry but you’d be bonkers mad to try it.

Don’t try it from the Wombeyan Caves end unless you are a very experienced 4wd operator with a decent vehicle. Towing anything from the Wombeyan Caves side is not recommended at all.
