Fitzroy Falls Conference & Adventure Centre
Fitzroy Falls, NSW

It was a very wet day on my visit to Fitzroy Falls, in fact it had rained solidly since arriving in NSW, no surprise really, given that it was winter and I am headed for the beautiful Southern Highlands Rain forest. I was looking forward to meeting Ian and Alison, from Optimum Experiences (an outdoor activity provider), it has only been in the last couple of years that they have moved into camp ownership with Fitzroy Falls.

On arriving at the entrance to the camp, the new professional looking entrance sign indicates to me what lies ahead. I love a good entrance sign, it should be a telling image of what you should be expecting at the camp. I see too many old, tired and dated entrance signs often forgotten- how is your camp’s entrance sign looking? They are such a great advertisement for the passer by and should be seen as a marketing opportunity for the camp (they are cheap marketing as they advertise your site 24/7).

I loved the giant lily pads (or transporter pads) which I hadn’t seen at a camp before. The tree climbing holds on the ropes course, just strap onto the tree, was a new sight for me.

Ian and Alison walked with me showing me all over the camp. The camp accommodates 150 in dormitory rooms with bathrooms and several bunk rooms also, each equipped with their own bathroom facilities a dining room, and other indoor areas.

The main fire was going in the dinning room on my visit and it was welcomed. A real feature of the camp is the log chapel as the camp is a superb place for weddings given it has so much natural beauty surrounding it.
