Creature comforts
Enjoy the comforts of home at some sites—including flush toilets, showers, and a kitchen.
Our property is located in the Blue Mountains, nestled right in the middle of the national park and all that the Blue Mountains bush has to offer. Gums, ferns, fresh air and swimming holes. I only allow one group to camp at any one time per site. Other groups will be well away from you. However the dam is available for everyone to use. I adjust each booking with each group depending on size of the group and time of year. I also hold large events so will book out the entire site for large groups. Just a short drive from Sydney but a world away with its ancient forests and meandering pathways. All photos are from the site or within a 2km walk of the camping site in National Park or reserve. I welcome self-contained campers with your own camping toilet/shower, and drinking water. However there are facilities on site for smaller groups at an extra cost. The property offers a number of sites that can accommodate various group numbers. Please message me if you're interested in booking one or more listings for your special get together. Dogs are welcome as long as they are friendly, but no cats please. Also please be aware that we are surrounded by nature and part of nature are snakes and ticks. - we need to keep this environment for the wildlife. Please take all your belongings and rubbish with you when you leave. Leave it better than as you found it.

The West Camp
We had a great time at Bonnie Doon. The host was very friendly and informative. Its a great spot to camp for offroaders wanting to stay somewhere near Newnes.

A great property - we'll come back!
We've been to Bonnie Doon twice now and really love the property. The dam is lovely and there are plenty of handy facilities. It's close to Blackheath which gives you access to shops if you need, but it feels secluded away in the mountains - we were very much in our own lovely little world. It's also brilliant for larger groups. And Matthew is a great host too. We'll be back :)

Caravan adventure trip!
We absolutely loved our stay at Matthew's property with our caravan. From a communication perspective Matt was awesome! Quick to reply, super helpful in the pre booking process and once we were on site he was unreal. He check in on us time to time and see if we needed anything, he even chopped some wood for us for our fireplace on the sport AND took us on a guided tour to some epic look out locations on his property ! As for the property its such a bonus having somewhere close to Sydney that makes you feel like youre completely off grid, we hitched our caravan, and within 2 hours we were cooking dinner our bbq under the stars. The facilities were quite good as well, I must admit .... drop down toilets are a new experience for us but they were clean, free from bugs and were pleasant to use. The homemade pizza over and sitting area was epic and on a cracking spot facing the dam. Overall we loved our experience and we highly recommend booking here. Thanks Matt we will definitely be back!

Special Crew Camp
My favourite
I cannot recommend Matthew’s place enough. It was THE best place we have stayed at, so far, and we are three months into our lap. When we got there I was a bit unsure (as it has a rustic feel to it), but then we had a good look around and I couldn’t believe my eyes. The dam has a water slide for the kids, also a wooden diving platform and a rock climbing wall. The kids were in this all day. There is the most amazing look out ever on Matthew’s property, of the mountains (you have to drive one km in a 4wd to see it). What made it the best place for us though, was Matthew himself. What a beautiful, lovely person, who is just so hospitable. We wished we didn’t have an onwards booking as we could have stayed here for a week. The location is with great proximity to Blackheath, where there are a lot of blue mountains attractions.
