Watton Airstrip

29 sites · RVs, Tents265 acres · Watton, NSW
Watton Airstrip is a stunning property, nestled on the banks of the Macquarie River. Featuring nine riverside campsites, along with paddock and bush sites, all 4WD accessible and two equally stunning 2WD accessible sites. You’ll share our spaces with kangaroos, wallabies, emus, echidnas, deer, platypus and more. Enjoy some optional extras, including Tammie's home made bread, farm fresh, free range eggs, or one of our range of grazing platters, home made jams or hot chocolate kits. Or pamper yourself with a Crystal reiki session, or tarot reading. The 2WD accessible sites feature spectacular views to the right, towards Mt Panorama and Mt Horrible and towards Mt Canobolas to the left. Lie back in your swag at night and let the star struck, velvety sky envelope you, or make a booking at the nearby Bathurst Observatory to see the stars up close. Each campsite offers its own unique features for you to enjoy and a hand crafted pit toilet is accessible to those camped along the river bank. Fish or swim in the river, ride your bikes, or set up camp and then head off on an adventure to the Goldfields at Ophir, or History Hill at Hill End via the Bridle Track. Better still, book into a pub crawl with Damo so you can lie back and enjoy the ride. There are plenty of opportunities for 4WDing and bushwalking in the local area. Fires are allowed (fire restrictions permitting). Wood can be collected from fallen wood around the property, or bring your own if you prefer. Pets are welcome for a one off fee per animal. We do ask that pets are supervised at all times and that they do not interfere with farm animals or local wildlife.

Bissys Permaculture Eco Retreat

9 sites · Tents97 acres · Cargo, NSW
We are located in the cool climate area of Central West NSW not far from Orange on a 97 acre property at Cargo. Our property is majestic with its views and surreal with the isolation and peacefulness of the land. Not to mention the night skies and closeness to the wildlife that visits. This place is for people who understand and appreciate permaculture design and principles. There's the opportunity to see the food forests and market gardens amongst other things in their developmental stages. Tours can be organised.The farm is set in a valley with rolling hillsides and a forest at the top of our land. It's nothing to stand onsite and hear the many noises of animals both calling out and scurrying across the terrain. There are plenty of places to visit both onsite and in surrounding areas. BYO amenities. We are dog friendly but they need to be well socialised as there are other animals on site. We run Bissy's Permaculture Cafe in town and any guest who books and stays at our place is entitled to one free coffee per person - see us on arrival. :)

Bathurst Retreat is a 250 acre natural bushland eco property, with remote private tent and RV campsites beside the Macquarie River. Canoeing, fishing, and swimming with abundant wildlife from kangaroos, wombats, wallabies, and platypus, to hundreds of bird varieties from wedgetail eagles to colourful parrots and spectacular bee-eaters. A genuine natural Australian bush and riverfront experience. You can go for a bushwalk along the river or up to the lookout on Billy Goat Hill. Enjoy instant relaxation, or get into lots of activities like bushwalking, swimming, fishing, birdwatching or just sitting by the river to enjoy the wildlife and maybe catch sight of the resident platypus family. A perfect place for the artist as the property is spectacularly beautiful no matter where you look. The riverside campsites are currently for self-contained campers only. We can accept up to two cars in each camping site, but only one caravan or camper trailer maximum per site. In addition to the riverside campsites we have a larger campsite on the top of "Billygoat Hill" able to accommodate up to 20 plus people and 6 vans or tents. This campsite is known as "Billygoat Hill" and would be great for a either romantic couple who would love to sit by the campfire as the sun sets in the west; or alternatively it can accommodate a large group of campers who can enjoy their fun times, bushwalking, and a short drive (or walk) to the river (approx 800m) for fishing or a swim. Campfires are permitted if no RFS restrictions apply. You are welcome to gather firewood from the surrounding bush, but please do not use chainsaws. The property is located 25 minutes from Bathurst and provides access to Orange and Hill End for the keen explorer!

Black cypress pines, grevilleas, lomandras and heath feature commonly on the landscape. There are many tall grass trees in this area too, some of which are believed to be hundreds of years old. This is a large property that is taking a break from sheep farming. Covered in gum trees and pines and lots of open space. The property has a creek with all year round water holes and dams. You can do almost anything you want. Hiking, fishing, swimming, camping and living the dream. There's emus (bush chooks), kangaroos (hopping dogs), platypus and no drop bears, meaning you can sit back, relax and go back to the way it was. Self sufficient campers only, leave no trace. You must bring your own camping toilet and shower. If booking under the Group listing, you will need to arrange you own portaloos, which I am happy to manage delivery/pick up of with the local hire company. It's 15 minutes to the pub in town if you're up for a coldie or a meal. ​Our farm is a work in progress.
