Nestled at the apex of the pristine Colo Valley, you will find Bluelilies, so named because of the spectacular blue waterlilies blooming on their lagoon. They are eco-friendly private camping site (so leave no footprint!) surrounded on three sides by Wollemi National Park, site of the discovery of the Wollemi Pine, the Living Dinosaur and only one and a half hours drive from Sydney.
The Colo Valley is steeped in history, from the original owners the Dharak people, whose middens and cave paintings can be found, to slab huts of early convict settlers. Their property is a wonderful base to explore the local area from Windsor to the Blue Mountains.
Remember to explore their local wineries, such as Tizzana and go to the Windsor markets which are open every Sunday. Gosper's Lagoon and their valley are also renowned for bird watching and artists, so pack your paints and camera if that is your interest!
Bring your kayaks, fishing gear and dogs to enjoy your holiday with you. The Colo River is a five minute drive. They have patchy mobile coverage where you can text or call depending on your phone.
