Campground facilities include modern amenity blocks with toilets, hot showers, laundry facilities, dishwashing stations and picnic areas equipped with free gas barbecues.
Generators and fires, including solid barbecue fuel (such as wood and briquettes), are not permitted. Portable gas barbecues are permitted but must not be lit on days of Total Fire Ban.
A wide range of roofed accommodation is also available at Tidal River including cabins, huts, group lodges and the award winning Wilderness Retreats. See the Tidal River Accommodation page for more information.
