The many creeks, rivers and dams that surround the Glen Innes Highlands make up some great water sport hideaways.
The Nymboida National Park and Beardy Waters Dam & Woodlands usually have plenty of room to go kayaking and canoeing.
In additional, many of our farm stays also have flowing creeks and rivers where you are able to kayak, canoe and fish.
Nymboida National Park is the perfect place for the adventurer. If camping in remote, unspoilt beauty surrounded by dramatic landforms while neighbouring the beautiful Nymboida River appeals, point your 4WD towards Nymboida River campground.
Push your canoe out into the river, or take a summer dip while listening for the distinctive chink of the bellbirds. There are no marked tracks, but experienced bushwalkers will love the wild beauty of Nymboida.
This is a quiet campground and you may well have the place to yourself. Even getting there’s an adventure. Old Glen Innes-Grafton Road passes through a historic hand-cut tunnel into the stillness of the deserted valley.
Cast your imagination into the past and you may hear the snap of the reins on the Cobb & Co. coach team, the thud of the timber getter’s axe, or the cry of the bullocky hauling down the track to Clarence River.
Beardies Waters is a beautiful location perfect for families visiting Glen Innes Highlands.
There are picnic tables, shelters and barbecue area with toilets, perfect for a recreational day out. Beardies Waters provides the perfect opportunity for fishing and kayaking during your stay in Glen Innes Highlands.
Beardy Woodlands Directions: Travell along the Gwydir Highway towards Grafton for five kilometres. The Woodlands are signposted. You can visit either side of the Beardy, the reserve on the right viewing the dam and the left viewing the river.
Shannonvale Road Bridge Directions: Head out the Gwydir Highway towards Grafton, turn right into the Shannonvale road at the top of the hill. Travel along for two kilometres until you see the dam.
Deepwater Station is a historic grazing property located on top of the Great Dividing Range in the northern NSW area known as the New England.
Due to its position on top of a mountain range and its elevation of 900 to 1400m, the New England is renowned for lovely mild summers and cold, frosty winter nights, a beautiful “rolling hill” landscape, rainfall that allows green grass through most of the year and picturesque high country streams and rivers.
All people staying at Deepwater Station have access to our 10 km, private, double frontage to the Deepwater River for fishing, swimming, picnicking and kayaking.
