*********** SORRY WE ARE FULLY BOOKED FOR EASTER *********** The River Orchard is a majestic 165 acres property nestled between the Oxley River and Mt Warning. The working macadamia farm boasts five campsites each positioned in different nooks with only one group booked in per campsite. Pets and campfires welcome. Hot water shower and compost toilet cleaned several times a day. The Flats Site - The Flats is an extra large site closest to the Oxley River enjoying direct water access with two levels. The first is sheltered by an overhanging sour cherry tree and overlooks the bottom plateau and swimming spot. This site is a short three minute walk to the shower shed. Riverview Site - Riverview is perched on the raised riverbank looking down upon the swimming spot and rapids. A sprawling old tree shelters this extra spacious campsite ideal for large groups. We recommend Riverview for guests with younger children as it does not have direct river access and is the closest to the shower shed. Orchard View - Situated next to the Riverview campsite, this location is close to the river with stunning views across the macadamia orchard. The Grove - The Grove is one of our cosiest sites framed by a towering tree complete with stag horns, with branches that sprawl out over the campsite offering an abundance of shade. Close to the shower shed & a short walk to the river. The Pine Hideaway - This is our most private and stunning site.

Eagles Nest Hideaway, Pecan Fields

29 sites · RVs, Tents600 acres · Dunoon, NSW
This expansive 600 acre farm is a place of joy, sharing and rare beauty! The beautiful land and water system is home to thriving native wildlife. You can even see Platypus in the early mornings, playing in the creek. All of the camp areas are easily access-able and flat, usually 2wd car is all you need. We also provide you with creature comforts such as a cold/ hot shower and fresh pit toilets :) You will feel like you are immersed in the beauty of nature here and yet you are only 6 minutes easy drive from the village of Dunoon, NSW 2480 and 45 minutes beautiful country drive from glorious Byron Bay beaches and it's very exciting night life! On every second sunday of the month, the Channon Markets are on, which is just 10 minutes drive from camp. Dunoon village is cute yet, very practical. There is a general store, bottle shop and they sell ice, Mechanic, Post Office and the best bit, you can even go out for dinner or lunch depending on the day, at the Dunoon Sports Club/ Pub then head back to your secluded country camp and cool off in the beautiful creek or warm up and enjoy some quality time around the camp fire! Over one kilometre of "Rocky Creek" runs through the Pecan Fields camp area, providing gorgeous waterholes for swimming, walks and great sites to set up camp for the weekend! We farm cattle on the property as well as macadamia nuts on the hills and pecan nuts by the creek. The pecan trees provide wonderful shade in summer and gorgeous dappled sunlit fields. In winter the pecan trees lose their leaves and the sun shines through. Great for solar power ( in summer in best solar sites are at the Paradise Waterhole)! Together with Land Care we have planted many koala corridors, to keep koalas safe and help them get around, so don't forget to look up, whilst in this beautiful oasis! REGARDING CAMPER NUMBERS and GROUPS: If you are looking to go camping with a SMALL GROUP (1 to 4 campers), the sites to choose from are in the "PECAN GROVE". We offer just 4 dispersed sites in the PECAN GROVE, so each camp has lots of space around it for your relaxation. If you have a MEDIUM size group of campers (4 to 10 campers) then either the PARADISE WATERHOLE or the PECAN WATERHOLE is the place for you. The PARADISE WATERHOLE is a huge glassy area overlooking a waterhole and bridge, which is the PERFECT SITE FOR SOLAR set ups and is very private as it only has 2 sites on this large mostly flat area. The PECAN WATERHOLE is divided into 4 sites, which all overlook the creek and or waterhole. Each of these sites have a lot of space around them for your camping pleasure and a HUGE gorgeous sandstone bottom waterhole, luxurious and perfect for cooling off on summer days! If you are looking for a unique and beautiful waterhole all to yourselves, look no further... The BASS WATERHOLE is great for MEDIUM- LARGE GROUPS of 6 to 30 campers. It overlooks one of our largest waterholes... back in the day, the local schools would use it as their 50 meter swimming pool :) If you're looking to go camping with a LARGER GROUP (20 or more campers), feel free to book out all 4 sites at the PECAN WATERHOLE, as this area is such a wonderful and glorious place to be with family and or dear friends :) In our reviews a camper said it was the best Hipcamp he's ever been to :)) HOT TIPS : 1. All you can eat pecan nuts May-July! 2. The pecan wood is actually hickory, thus the pecan wood can be used for smoking meats etc... so feel free the gather the hickory, bring your smokers and enjoy :)
