Camp Wallaby

5 sites · RVs, Tents10 acres · Holtze, NT
Our 10 acres is part of a larger family property bought in the early 1960s. There were no neighbours, no roads, no development, no nothing! My parents developed the property, ran livestock and to this day the property remains the same with my 94 year old mother still living on the larger part of the property with us siblings living around.
