The source of the Phantom River itself, lies some 1700 metres above sea level in the Ben McLeod Range. The Hewson River meets Quartz Creek between the Ben McLeod and the Tara Haoa Ranges before joining the Phantom and the Orari at Blue Mountain just off the Lochaber Road. The Orari changes course and flows south east past Mount Frances collecting Andrews Stream, Black Birch Stream and on past Tripp Settlement and through the Orari Gorge. Across the plain where the Orari disappears periodically amid gravel braids and onwards to the Pacific.

Super busy spot - at least 30 "permanent" residents in campers with fences. Nice view and very well maintained bathroom, but we left due to its business.

Beach and river is beautiful BUT SO MANY CAMPERVANS!! One toilet and ad least 50 people. Carpark full even on the river side. Seems like locals had some festival of fishing. Some of the people are definitely living there. We had to leave because of the space and the toilet .
