Situated on the edge of the Blue Mountains escarpment, our property has sweeping views overlooking the Sydney basin all the way to the coast.  Camp atop our trigonometry point (the highest point in the district) and watch over the city as the lights turn on at dusk. Perfect for NYE and Australia Day fireworks 🎆 or some weekend tranquility just one hour's drive from Sydney. You can use the property as a base to explore the area. It's only 30 mins to Bents Basin, a deep waterhole that forms part of a gorge on the Nepean River, offering swimming, fishing and walking tracks. We are pet friendly! Campfires are also allowed, so you can enjoy the spot around a crackling fire. Campers must have own amenities and leave no trace.

Definitely won’t stay again.
Cow manure everywhere!! Lucky we had a RTT but ground tent would have been impossible. Not tranquil at all - the road is close, the rifle range is close, other camp is close Enough to join the dance party our neighbours had. Was hoping for a nice close to Sydney spot - won’t stay again.

Nice views, but close to the road
Overall we had a lovely time, the camp is only 500m from the main road which did have quite a few heavy vehicles and unfortunately a few car enthusiasts doing burnouts and racing… it did settle after 12am, but was quite noisy most of the day. We took our own firewood and am glad, as we only found a few big logs, my husband did have his chain saw to cut them up. The views were sweeping and pretty, although the rain we got did fog it over a bit, we just sat under our awning to enjoy the fire

Excellent stars, trees and nature sounds. The sunsets are beautiful and at night there is a sparkling skyline. Pretty close to a road which was only a little noisy. Free firewood and lots of space for the doggo to run :)

Great spot for a quiet night away, and so quick and easy to get to from the city. Views were fantastic. As others have said, lots of cow poo but it is a working farm.

Perfect spot
Perfect spot! Directions easy to follow. Plenty of firewood around. Great view of city. Nice having the cattle greet us in the morning (from the other side of the fence!) Bit of traffic noise from the main road to be expected but this died down by around 8pm and then we had pure night nature sounds. Great way to escape the city for a quick night away as a relatively short drive compared with other options that have nice views. Great to get the fire going in the morning and watch the sunrise. Thanks for a great stay!

Location is great however finding a spot to setup camp is hard as the site is covered in animal poo. I would recommend bringing a shovel.

Views for Miles
The views were amazing 🤩 and so close to Sydney. Anthony was great to deal with and answered messages quickly. There was fallen wood in the property (we still brought some just in case) for much needed warmth in June.

Great view .. but bring a shovel :)
The location is dominant from Blue mountains over Sydney's flat, amazing for sunrises and night's city view. A bit expensive compared with others & for what you get .. and you really need a shovel or similar to get rid of the abundant's cow sh*t, but besides that top spot

Beautiful views. We where the only ones on site. There was a bit of cow shit around, but nothing a little shovel can't fix. It was awesome waking up to a beautiful sunrise & wild life around the camp. Would definitely recommend & will definitely be back again.

This property is perfect for those who are after the full camping experience, situated on top of a hill with great morning and night views. Setting up can take some time finding a level spot and recommend taking a shovel for clearing your set up area from cow droppings. However this added to our camping experience and gave it a more secluded feeling. We took our dog, who loved it and there was some firewood provided which was great!

Grass very long
Lovely spot, however not worth $80 per night. Grass was very long and although the view is nice, it is in my opinion not worth the hefty fee.

A quaint open-aired camping spot on the top of lush green rolling hills. A nice vantage point for scenic views and star gazing. A perfect place to stop for the night!

Relax not far from Sydney
Great spot not far from Sydney, host was fantastic, the moved the cows out of the paddock just as we got there. Great views looking into the city and other suburbs at night. Make sure you do take a shovel to move a cow droppings. All not far from Sydney.

Great views and friendly host
The views are beautiful across to the city skyline, especially on a clear night. Be prepared to spend 30mins clearing the area of cow patties before setting up, ohh and bring your own wood if you don’t want to spend time walking up and down the terrain searching for wood. We enjoyed our stay and Bec was friendly and very welcoming.

Great views, close to Sydney!
Great spot being so close to Sydney. Views of the sunsets and sunrise was just incredible. Also amazing to be able to have 180 degree uninterrupted views of the cities lighting up in the night. Our set up was a camper trailer and swags. Setting up will definitely require some levelling, given that you are located at the top of a hill. There are livestock within the property with cows and horses (even some coming up to us). As such, it was also difficult to set up a site given the amount of cow poop in the area as well... so bring your shovels. Easy transaction and good communication with the host. Thank you.
