King River Camp

King River Camp is the trading name of Cheshunt Christian Camp Inc.   We are a not for profit organisation with a Christian ethos.   The camp is held in trust and operated by a committee of Christians from the North East of Victoria and is run on non denominational lines.

All income is reinvested in the facilities to maintain the camp presence in the North East.   Our camp managers are appointed on a basic wage and act as volunteers to enhance the camping experience for those who visit, and as grounds maintenance staff.

The gifting of the Cheshunt South land was based on its continuing use for Youth Camping, and to this end the committee aim to make the location a tranquil experience and adventure for all who come.

To speak with us about accommodation bookings, camp history, offers of voluntary labour, or donations for property development, please contact our managers.

Symphonia Wines

Symphonia vineyards is a winemaking idyll in Victoria’s King Valley region owned by Peter and Suzanne Evans. 

The vineyards have quite a history in Australia’s vinous landscape and continues to share the vision of the original owner Peter Read.

When he planted the vineyard in 1981, alternative varieties were always the core focus and this decision has been validated over the years as fruit from the vineyards has been sourced by some notable names. Pizzini, De Bortoli, Gapstead and Bill Downie have all utilised the site. 

Winemaker Lilian Carter continues to assist and coax the fruit into a melodious harmony while family member Sophie waves the baton of the business like an expert conductor.

Our vineyard near Myrrhee in Victoria’s King Valley continues to excel and produce the obscure and the unusual, planted to Petit Manseng, Pinot Gris and Savagnin as well as Saperavi, Tannat and Tempranillo.
