Long Weekend at Knorrit Flat

With a long weekend beckoning we decided to join some mates camping at Knorrit Flat Riverside Retreat.

After re-packing the van, we got away mid-morning Friday and arrived at the campsite at lunchtime to blue skies and sunshine. After a bite to eat we set about setting up the camper.

The campsite is located on the Nowendoc River at Caffrey’s Flat about 40kms from Wingham NSW. The sites are a great size with their own firepit and are mostly flat and grassy. The road down to the campsite is quite steep, and would be an interesting exit in the wet i imagine. The campsites site up on the bank, and there is an entry point for those wanting to swim or put canoe’s/kayaks etc in the water.

We had a lovely Friday afternoon/evening sitting around the fire talking crap, cooking dinner and just enjoying the peace and quiet. We even managed to make a campfire oven cake (gluten free and all) and it was pretty darn good.

We woke up Saturday to annoying drizzling rain, so after breaky when it looked set in for the day, the boys decided to put up the tarp, which of course ensured that the rain would stop about half an hour later.

Lovely large sites to spread out on

Once the rain cleared we went for a wander along the river.

But not for the kids !

After the morning rain, we even managed a slight sunset.

We cranked up the coals ready for some campfire oven cooking.

Passionfruit Gluten Free Cake in the oven – it was delish

We had a lazy Sunday morning before packing up and heading home about lunchtime via Gloucester.

Looking out over Gloucester.
