Bondoola Heights

3 sites · RVs, Tents25 acres · Bondoola, QLD
Our little slice of paradise is 25 acres, about 8 minutes from Yeppoon's beautiful beaches and islands, and 35 minutes from Byfield's rainforest! Situated up on a hill you can see the ocean and islands in the distance to the East and Byfield Ranges to the North. With the elevation a steady Easterly breeze off the ocean most of the year it keeps the property a nice temperature, almost as if you are right on the beach. We have a range of native local wildlife roaming around, from green tree frogs to cockatoos, parrots to lizards, Goannas to wallabies. When it comes to flora there is about 15 acres of the place which has never been cleared, containing ironbark, lemon scented gums, stringybark, and wattle trees among various other shrubs. Being situated at the end of a no through road you don't need to worry about a noisy highway or road, all you will hear is nature and the environment. We allow small campfires (outside of fire-bans) but please be respectful and light where others have before you. Dogs are also allowed as long as they are kept on a lead, and are friendly to others as we also have 3 dogs in our yard. With plenty of space between sites there's no need to be worried about being jam packed in like a caravan park. That's one thing we aim to avoid. Our property is a work in progress. Having purchased it 5 years ago as a very baron and blank canvas we now have over 20 varieties of fruit trees planted over the last few years, with countless days and weeks spent landscaping, gardening and spreading topsoil for lawns. Its still far from perfect but its something we love and want to share. There is just over 1 km of smooth gravel road to our turn off, and our driveway is also gravel and moderately steep. 2WD vehicles can make it up, it just requires a little momentum. However if you are towing anything substantial you will require a 4WD. The two sites are right up the top of the hill, but still suitable for larger vans (over 20ft) and small busses - provided the towing vehicles etc are okay with climbing the driveway.
