Willowbank

5 sites · RVs, Tents252 acres · Stroud Road, NSW
"Willowbank" is a stunning 252 acre property located in the picturesque Stroud Road valley with 1km of river frontage. The property has been in our family for 4 generations! Being bought by Ian's great grandfather in the 1920's. We cater for guests that are looking to get back to nature. Enjoy the great outdoors without feeling overcrowded! We want our guests to be happy and have the best experience possible. Located only 8 minutes drive from the historical town of Stroud which was settled by the AA Company in the 1820's as a food growing area. There are still many beautiful buildings from that period to explore. A dairy farm for many years, we switched over to beef around 15 years ago. Currently we run around 120 head of Angus and mixed breed cattle. Within 3 hours drive of Sydney and around an hour from the Barrington National Parks, Newcastle, Maitland, Forster and Nelson Bay, it makes it the perfect destination for a weekend getaway! We are offering four beautiful partly shaded, camping sites along the pristine Upper Karuah River. With two adjoining sites that can be booked seperately or if you would like the whole place to yourselves, book both! If the other sIte is already booked and you would like a little more space we have a few other areas we can show you. Alternatively, there are also two other sites further down the river, these are 4wd accessible only. All sites are site only and no toilet or shower facilities are provided. You will need to bring your own camping toilet or self contained caravan/ camper (which can be emptied at the dump point located in Stroud township 10 minutes drive away). Access to The Paperbarks and Wallaby Green is provided by the unsealed council road right to the sites. The sites themselves are subject to wet weather so 4wd vehicles are preferred though 2wd vehicles may be parked just off the road if it gets a bit wet. Please note, we do have a house up the hill from these sites. It faces away from the area though. The Rapids and Riverview sites are accessed via a laneway through the property. These sites are for 4wd drive vehicles with tents or camper trailers only. As sites are located along the riverbank, at times they are subject to flooding. This may mean that camping there may not be suitable at all times and you may need to move to higher ground in this event. The whole property is also cut off from road access during times of flood. Site 1 (Wallaby Green) the larger of the sites is suited to camper trailers, caravans, camper vans or tents. It has some flat areas and also some slightly sloping with river access. Bring your cricket bat and enjoy a game! Site 2 (The Paperbarks) is slightly smaller and is also suited to camper trailers, caravans, camper vans or tents. It also has a flat area with some slight slope and river access. Put up your hammock between the trees and just relax. Site 3 (The Rapids) and Site 4 (Riverview) are both private, flat sites with 4wd access only. Bring your tent, swag or camper trailer and enjoy the river rapids. The river bank is a little steep in places and access is via a track so please be mindful when walking. River shoes are also encouraged as the rocks in the river can be slippery. Perfect for a relaxing stay in summer with swimming, canoeing or floating on your raft down the river. Bring your fishing gear for some relaxing bass or mullet fishing (catch and release is encouraged). The pristine river is also home to platypus which can be seen early in the morning or late afternoon from the campsites. Please do not try and interact with these beautiful animals, photography is encouraged though! There are numerous birds, water dragons and wallabies that also inhabit the area around the campsites. Sit around the camp fire (restrictions permitting) and watch the stars with family and friends. Firepits are provided for use, subject to fire restriction periods. (Firewood may be purchased for $20 a bag) There are opportunities for bush walking, bird watching and mountain bike riding on the property. With beautiful views from the top of the mountain as well. Our farm is a working beef cattle property. Please be mindful that cattle and horses have free range of the property, which includes the road, so take care when driving. There will also be at times motorbikes, chainsaws and vehicles operating around the farm. We will endeavour to keep the noise away from campers where possible. There will also be the odd cow/horse poo and mooing at night in case anyone has an issue. Small to medium dogs are allowed but must be on a leash at all times. This is due to there being working dogs and cattle in the area. Sorry, NO LARGE DOGS allowed. We do have mobile phone reception with Telstra and Optus on the property. Historic Stroud township has a supermarket, butcher, chemist, cafes, a club and pub along with swimming pool, playground and skate park. Dungog is located 25 minutes drive away and also has many historic buildings and cafes etc. Gloucester is 40 minutes drive and offers similar as well as access to the World renowned wilderness of the Barrington Tops National Park. We hope to make your stay a pleasurable one with many happy memories made. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. ***sorry no parties allowed*** Your hosts, Jo and Ian.

MaMiKa Herefords

3 sites · RVs, Tents380 acres · Gloucester, NSW
An exclusive, natural camping experience. Our property is located on the beautiful Gloucester River under the picturesque Bucketts Mountains. The river is a fresh mountain river running from the foothills of Barrington Tops. We are an active beef cattle farm. We run approximately 130 head of cattle. You will see our herds of cattle across the paddocks, which includes pregnant cows, young cattle, our calves, and of course Bentley our bull. We will endeavour to run our cattle outside of the paddocks containing the campsites, however in the event we need to use these paddocks, the campsite will be secured by temporary electric fencing to ensure your safety. For this reason, we ONLY allow dogs to stay if they remain on a lead or tethered run at all times. If a dog is sighted off a leash, you will be asked to leave, and you will not be refunded any visit. The Bucketts are within the country belonging to the Biripi and Worimi peoples, with Gloucester being known as Mookibakh. In the native language, the Bucketts mountains (the Buccan Buccan) means the “father of stones looking down on sacred land.” We certainly think you will agree when you see our beautiful campsites! Most of the year the river is lovely and clear and ideal for swimming, fishing, photography or just enjoying. There is also some really nice bike riding and walking opportunities around the Gloucester Memorial Park. We are a short 5 minute drive from Gloucester CBD with lovely cafes and shops. We are approximately 1 hour 15 minutes from Barrington Tops should you wish to visit. You are likely to see a variety of birdlife including Wedgetail Eagles, Black Cockatoos, Black Shouldered Kites, Kookaburras and Butcher Birds. You may also see some native animals including kangaroos, possums, echidnas and you may even see a platypus or turtle in the river, if you are lucky! All of our campsites are perfect for having a campfire (fire season dependent). Also be sure to bring your telescope as you’ll be amazed at the stargazing at night with no light pollution or other pollution for that matter. The night sky is truly a sight to see with clear viewings of the Milky Way, Southern Cross, Scorpion and Orion’s Belt. Countless hours could be spent watching the stars and looking for constellations. Our property is ideal for self-contained vans, camper trailers, medium motor homes, tents or swags, it’s up to you. There are no toilets so only suitable if you have your own toilet facilities and take away all waste when you leave. All toilet waste, leaving our property is very important and an absolutely essential requirement for all visitors. There is no rubbish collection on the campsites. You will be required to take all rubbish off the property when you leave. No rubbish can be burnt in any campfires at all. There is bins in the township of Gloucester. There is also no fresh water on supply for our campers. You should bring sufficient water with you before entering the property. The river is melted mountain ice, ad rain fall run off, hence you can drink it if you are satisfied with its purity. However, we do not provide drinking or potable water. You will have very good mobile and internet coverage across the property. Besides Gloucester, Dungog and historic Stroud village are nearby as well as Barrington Tops World Heritage wilderness area and national park. We have only recently opened up our property for guests and we are sure you will enjoy it far more than a crowded traditional caravan park or campground. NB - the following is fire season depedent. We do also have some limited bags of firewood for sale at $20 a bag - let us know when you book if you need some. You can also bring your own firewood if you wish. It is essential that you ensure the fire is completely out before leaving the fire. Our campsites are in active paddocks and hence the risk of fire spreading is real. We trust our campers to make sure the fire is either put out with water or has completely died out. When you make a reservation at the property we will always endeavour to put you in your preferred location as best we can. However if we are impacted by adverse weather or need to run cattle on certain parts of the farm then we may need to make a change to the actual site you are in and trust you understand. Additionally, offer farm tours which include hand feeding of cattle, an overview of the operation and some interesting facts on running a breeding cattle farm. The farm tours are $50 for 2 people for an hour. Extra people are $10 per head to a max of 4 people per tour. Advise us if you would like to book a farm tour when you book and we can coordinate a time for you. We look forward to you visiting our farm!
