Why so special ??
Because it’s a pristine, wildlife-loaded river …. and it’s right in our back yard.
Our own “resident” platypus George, released by Taronga Zoo back into the river at Camp Somerset, like us, calls this place our water playground.
Whether you’re pulling against the tide in your canoe, or floating down on your doughnut, the river provides fun, excitement and in summer, great cooling off.
If you’re building a raft or playing water games, you may not always notice the beautiful sandstone formations and the trees weeping along the river edges.
But you will feel the sand between your toes and you will get to experience why the Colo River at Camp Somerset is so special.
There are 7 reasons why Camp Somerset woodfired pizzas are just so damn good….
› our hand stretched dough
› the special juicy tomato sauce
› nutritious fresh toppings (even green stuff!!)
› shredded “stringy” mozzarella cheese
› primed wood-fired oven slabs
› slightly chewy but strong crusts with a hint of saltiness
› excited, hungry teams that hit the ground running
At Camp Somerset the kids love to whip up the best wood fired pizzas.
Rich in nutrition, rich in fun they take on the artisan process to create their own pizza bases barely able to hold up its toppings.
