Welcome! Lovely to see you here. Our property is located in Arcadia, just 45 minutes from Sydney CBD. The campsite is located on the high side of the property that looks over into the valley & has stunning views of the Berowra National Park. There is a multitude of walking, hiking and mountain bike trails. There are also many nearby horse riding trails. The property backs on to Calabash Creek which is like a rain Forrest once you get down to the valley floor. Berowra waters is near by, whereby many fishing, canoeing, boating activities are available, coupled with some great cafes/restaurants. Campfires are allowed as long as there are no restrictions in place and they are supervised. Pets are welcome but must be kept on a leash while on the property. Campers must be self contained with their own camping toilet and take all waste with them on departure.

What a wonderful piece of paradise.
What a wonderful place to camp. Views are beautiful. Camping grounds are nice and flat. Fantastic bush walks right on the property. The host was magnificent. It was raining and we were struggling to get our fire going as the wood was wet. They went above and beyond to help us get it going. Thanks!

This is a great place. So close to Sydney and yet you could be 1000kms away. Alex was great and very helpful. Nice grass cover , view over the valley and sunsets to boot. We really enjoyed it here and will be back. Don.

Alex was an accommodating and friendly host who met us upon arrival. The views were spectacular over the valley, and even better for both sunrise and sunset! The property was also extremely well maintained, with both firepits and firewood provided.

Really beautiful campsite with extraordinary views of Berowra waters National Park. Close to walking trails and water activities. The camping area is flat and grassy, fires are permitted in washing machine firepits. Our kids loved playing a few soccer matches and we managed to keep warm at night, we were given plenty of firewood. The best part: Less 60min drive from the city. Well suited for groups of friends or families with older kids. A few things to consider: -Toilets are not handy, there is a house about 100mts from campground you need to ask for toilet access every time you need it… not convenient if you have a call from mother nature at 1:00am -There are dogs around and we found a lot of dog #2s in the campground which ended up in our kids shoes and all over our caravan. May not be suitable for people with dog allergies or sensitive to animals or smells in general -We found broken glass scattered around so be careful if you enjoy walking barefoot or have young kids -There are rusty metal poles laying around everywhere so again, careful with kids -Have a general inspection when you arrive and look for hazards if you have small kids.. one of our kids fall into what we think it was a wombat hole literally 1 meter from the firepit. The hole was covered in weeds so we didn’t see it. Scary momment but thanksfully we managed to pull her out with minor scratches only if the above points are addressed his property has the potential to become a dream campground only a few minutes drive from home
