I stayed here as part of a weekend that had been organised by fellow acquaintances so didn't have a choice of the venue but did however have a choice of the accommodation standard. They have rooms off the hall that we were using that were great for people who were prepared to be very close to the action but very basic. They were only suitable for people who were locals as you had to bring your own linen and the facilities were shared. Next step up were the cabins so a better standard although I didn't see in any of them and the best were the motel-style rooms, some of which had spas and as I like them, chose one of those. As I had my mum with me too this was crucial as she wasn't participating in the activities and so spent quite a bit of time in the room. For those who wanted to camp (not participants in our function) they brought tents, caravans etc and based themselves along the river edge which was close to the hall. Our activities were centered around the main hall and we had exclusive use of this although for some of the dances, had curious onlookers come to see what we were doing. The resort is located in a beautiful valley far from everywhere (about 1 hr 40 from Newcastle) but has a couple of small towns nearby one of which I believe had a small supermarket. It was great for those who want to enjoy the peace and solitude of the area. It had a restaurant, kiosk and an outdoor pool, I bought something from the kiosk and couldn't resist going in the pool as the weather was reasonable for most of the weekend (May 2021). Water was cold but it allowed me to ease my aches and pains from lots of dancing. They also had a nice seating area near the reception which could certainly be enjoyed by those wanting to read a book or have a cuppa. Activities nearby were a bush walking track near the entrance of the park and horse riding. As the hall that we were using was very open to birds flying in and out (and because of the fact we were dancing a lot and needed to keep cool the doors were always open) there was guano everywhere particularly on the walls. I suppose because of the high volumes of birds flying around they don't bother cleaning it up as it would be a losing battle but I was taken aback by this. For youth camps it would have been a great venue as they can all be kept in the one area with enough wrangling although there is a river running through the resort and near to the hall so a close eye would have to be kept on the youngest ones. Might consider staying there again but not for the said dancing weekend and only in summer as it has the potential to be very cold especially overnight.

Booked a four night stay with friends and our vans on powered sites. Only one tap to hook up to between us. Site was very far from amenities which were not cleaned regularly. Kiosk never open. Road out is dreadful. Did not enjoy our stay at all, would not recommend to anyone.

Was a lovely park, lots of things to do. The grounds were clean and so were the amenities! The cafe was extremely expensive, but I understand they are far away from everything so you expect it. They had an awesome dedicated dog menu !! It was lovely to see ! Our puppy loved it and the entire park! The front desk ladies were really lovely too! Have another trip booked for June ! Very excited to go back.

We are back from a few days a Riverwood Downs. We took our small caravan and stayed on a powered site. The area is beautiful, quiet, with activities such as hiking, canoeing, lilo-ing down the river, horse riding and cycling available. We had a pleasant few days with 3 kids. The amenities are pretty basic, but showers are hot at least. Our only real complaint was the one night we ate in the on-site restaurant - expensive and disappointing all round. I had a green curry that would've been better had it come out of jar. They'd be better sticking to burgers and chips and doing them well than offering a large and wide ranging menu that doesn't deliver - hence the low value rating.

Just back from a 3 day trip from Sydney up to Riverwood Downs. Perfect campsite, as you have a range of options. We stayed in one of the timber cabins, which are the cheapest of the cabin options here. I wouldn’t bother with the more expensive ones actually Cabin was clean and beds were comfy. Lots of spare blankets. Towels provided. Reverse cycle air con worked a treat for cold nights. Tv/microwave/full stove/bar fridge/toaster/kettle. Our friends camped and had a river campsite. That was great, as we could have a fire but they said they would’ve preferred the park site at this time of year for the full sun. They sell bags of wood there but if you’re staying for a while, you’ll need quite a few bags (we used 3 x $15 per day)c so better to have wood delivered in. We hired the canoes to go up river a little way and also the tubes to go down rapids. ($30 per hour for canoes) Staff were very friendly. One night we went to tavern for dinner, just to break up the monotony of cooking. Meals were huge and delicious. Could easily share one main between two adults. Kids meals were $14 but included drink and dessert. They loved them. The bar is actually nice and the reception area is also inviting. Heaters/fairy lights etc. Like anywhere in the countryside, you need to slow down a bit and not expect everything to happen straight away. It’s a family run business employing locals. Complaining about delays just ruins things for very one. Took a walk up the mountain but mostly happy riding bikes around, playing cricket, etc etc. We loved this place. Will definitely be back.
