Alexandra Bridge Camping Ground is a pretty, peaceful camping ground set on the banks of the Blackwood River.

A tranquil haven, it features a stunning array of birds and wildlife and the river provides activities such as swimming, canoeing, fishing and boating making it a year round destination for visitors who enjoy camping in a natural environment.

Alexandra Bridge, named after the then Princess of Wales, was built in 1897 by Wishart and Davies. It was 104m long with seventeen 6.5m spans. The deepest section of the water is around 6m much of the time but can rise above 11m in a flood.

It was the first major bridge across the Blackwood River, used as a main link bridge on what is now the Brockman Highway to places east, and to service settlers and the local timber industry.

When the new Alexandra Bridge was built on a new alignment of the Brockman Highway in 1969, the old bridge was kept as a tourist attraction and became a popular picnic and camping area. Unfortunately most of the old bridge was washed away by floods in 1982.

There are 21 sites to choose from on a first come, first serve basis. Please select a site that is suitable for your caravan, tent or camper trailer. Camping is not permitted in the day use area by the river or anywhere outside of the designated camp sites.

The camp site has toilets, access toilet, cold showers, gas BBQ, shelters, picnic tables, rubbish bins, and a boat ramp.

A maximum length of stay of 28 days applies for any 3 month period.

Lovely camp ground in amongst the trees and easy access to the river. Flies, as with any bush camp during summer, may be an issue but with our day only visit my fly net made them bearable. I'd go there again. Ath T

Delightful spot. The river is wonderful for swimming, fishing, boating, etc. The site is very shady, so be aware if that of relying on solar. Large camp sites also Sam Delany
