Our property is nestled between state forests and nature reserves, near the village of Nymboida which is approx. 44km southwest of Grafton. You will find a variety of bird life and by night our marsupials. Bandicoots, possums and if you have a keen eye, owls. With 1.5km of creek frontage, you can explore away, fish in the waterhole for freshwater catfish or go for a walk along one of the valleys. Situated on 650 acres in hill country. You will certainly find something for your relaxing getaway. Pitch your tent in a variety of places, we have two areas available that offer complete privacy from other campers. Mill Flat (the location of the steam mill that was built when the property was a logging property) is located on around 3 acres of mostly flat grass land with direct access to our creek. Nearby, Fruit Orchard Hill is the location of the original home before the fires, the outlook from here is of the sheer mountain range of the neighbouring National Park. This camping area is elevated. Our third site is not so private but is the most central and conveniently located for exploring the creek and gaining access with big campervans.  If staying longer you can go for a white water kayak in the Nymboida River only 15 min away or head the other way to discover endless National Parks that stretch from the property to Dorrigo. We welcome self-contained campers who bring their own camping toilet/shower and water. You must have your own amenities. Well behaved dogs are most welcome to join you. Although we are pet friendly, please be aware and courteous to other campers. If your pet needs to be tied up please do so. We recommend 4WDs to access the campsite. Some places can be accessed by 2WD and walk to campsite. Caravan drivers need to be competent for hilly terrain and tight access, some roads are cut into steep ground and have very little give. However Site 1 is easy access for caravans. If unsure about your vehicle please message us.

A nice property with a beautiful running creek and a short walk to the swimming holes. Dennis and his wife were very accommodating with directions and Easter gifts for us. Unfortunately Dennis had been away prior to us arriving and the camping areas were a little overgrown and a couple of big dead trees kept us from camping in the designated area. Hopefully when we return we can camp down closer to the creek.

Absolute cracker of a spot. Possibly the best Hipcamp spot we’ve stayed in and definitely the best host!

We really enjoyed our stay by the creek at Denis’s property. Super peaceful and private campsite right by the creek. Some nice spots for a dip. Denis was great with communication and directions for highlights of his property including a nice deep swimming hole in front of a cascading waterfall. He even guided us into his property from the nearest town. Highly recommended a stay at this secluded property.

Campers heaven
Denis gave us very clear and helpful directions to find our way to their property. When we arrived it was very easy to find the camp-site we had booked - and it blew our minds! Beautiful big open paddock,s urrounded by native gums on all sides, such a beautiful site to wake up in your swag to! We had the creek side camp spot and it was wonderful to hear the small rapids mixed in with the soothing bird sounds all day and night. It was only a short, but fun walk up the creek to find some deeper holes to go for a swim in. We felt very secluded from the outside world, just how we like camping!! Denis, his wife and daughter came to greet us, which was such a wonderful personal touch to the experience!
