Driving Directions

Thunderbolts way can be tricky, particularly if you are driving south from Tamworth to Gloucester. It is very very steep and if you are driving a heavy rig, you should select a low gear and just crawl down the long steep sections or you will burn out your brakes. Don't worry about the line of traffic behind you. Safety first.

Bretti Reserve is on the southern end of Thuderbolts Way so there is no problem getting there from the Gloucester end.

Bretti Reserve Camping Area is one of those favourite spots where many campers return to year after year. It is a beaut camp ground. Very popular in holiday times. Large area beside river. Limited shade.
Peaceful, secluded, a place where you can get close to nature and rediscover tranquility.

Mostly open paddock area with a little shade. As of August 2013, a farmer has leased the area for grazing, so you may need to share with cows and their resultant waste! They keep the grass down, so it seems like it was mown. A beautiful campsite, but it can get very cold in winter. Very little firewood in the immediate area, so bring it with you. Water in river is fine for showers and washing if needed.
