This expansive 600 acre farm is a place of joy, sharing and rare beauty! The beautiful land and water system is home to thriving native wildlife. You can even see Platypus in the early mornings, playing in the creek. All of the camp areas are easily access-able and flat, usually 2wd car is all you need. We also provide you with creature comforts such as a cold/ hot shower and fresh pit toilets :) You will feel like you are immersed in the beauty of nature here and yet you are only 6 minutes easy drive from the village of Dunoon, NSW 2480 and 45 minutes beautiful country drive from glorious Byron Bay beaches and it's very exciting night life! On every second sunday of the month, the Channon Markets are on, which is just 10 minutes drive from camp. Dunoon village is cute yet, very practical. There is a general store, bottle shop and they sell ice, Mechanic, Post Office and the best bit, you can even go out for dinner or lunch depending on the day, at the Dunoon Sports Club/ Pub then head back to your secluded country camp and cool off in the beautiful creek or warm up and enjoy some quality time around the camp fire! Over one kilometre of "Rocky Creek" runs through the Pecan Fields camp area, providing gorgeous waterholes for swimming, walks and great sites to set up camp for the weekend! We farm cattle on the property as well as macadamia nuts on the hills and pecan nuts by the creek. The pecan trees provide wonderful shade in summer and gorgeous dappled sunlit fields. In winter the pecan trees lose their leaves and the sun shines through. Great for solar power ( in summer in best solar sites are at the Paradise Waterhole)! Together with Land Care we have planted many koala corridors, to keep koalas safe and help them get around, so don't forget to look up, whilst in this beautiful oasis! REGARDING CAMPER NUMBERS and GROUPS: If you are looking to go camping with a SMALL GROUP (1 to 4 campers), the sites to choose from are in the "PECAN GROVE". We offer just 4 dispersed sites in the PECAN GROVE, so each camp has lots of space around it for your relaxation. If you have a MEDIUM size group of campers (4 to 10 campers) then either the PARADISE WATERHOLE or the PECAN WATERHOLE is the place for you. The PARADISE WATERHOLE is a huge glassy area overlooking a waterhole and bridge, which is the PERFECT SITE FOR SOLAR set ups and is very private as it only has 2 sites on this large mostly flat area. The PECAN WATERHOLE is divided into 4 sites, which all overlook the creek and or waterhole. Each of these sites have a lot of space around them for your camping pleasure and a HUGE gorgeous sandstone bottom waterhole, luxurious and perfect for cooling off on summer days! If you are looking for a unique and beautiful waterhole all to yourselves, look no further... The BASS WATERHOLE is great for MEDIUM- LARGE GROUPS of 6 to 30 campers. It overlooks one of our largest waterholes... back in the day, the local schools would use it as their 50 meter swimming pool :) If you're looking to go camping with a LARGER GROUP (20 or more campers), feel free to book out all 4 sites at the PECAN WATERHOLE, as this area is such a wonderful and glorious place to be with family and or dear friends :) In our reviews a camper said it was the best Hipcamp he's ever been to :)) HOT TIPS : 1. All you can eat pecan nuts May-July! 2. The pecan wood is actually hickory, thus the pecan wood can be used for smoking meats etc... so feel free the gather the hickory, bring your smokers and enjoy :)

The Bass Waterhole
The campsite at the Bass Waterhole was one of the best sites we have stayed in. Robyn was a fantastic host. Communication and assistance on arrival was very welcomed. The site was spacious and unique. We had a lot of fun swimming in the river and the exploring the pecan fields. Would highly recommend a stay here. The area surrounding the site is awesome - try the Whiam Whiam falls - they are spectacular and a great place to swim.

Pecan Grove
Very peaceful place. Clean and well looked after pit toilet. Shower broke while we were there, but they were super efficient in getting it going again. We booked last minute so missed out on a spot by the water. If we had manage to nab a water spot, then I'd give it a 10/10.

Pecan Grove
Lovely place but not 2WD suitable
The property is lovely. The showers and drop toilets are great. I received a couple of messages from Robyn before the stay with helpful instructions on how to get the property. I responded, advising that I might be arriving after dark. When we arrived at 9:30pm (after 12 hours of driving) we found that there were designated campsites but we had not been advised of which site we were in so didn’t know which gate to enter. We called the number on the listing and received a blasting from Robyn about how rude we were for calling at that hour. When we finally got our site number we found other guests in our site. We went to turn around and got bogged. Turns out the whole property was muddy after a week of rain. Two other guests were bogged as well. Thankfully, guest with a 4WD pulled us out. Robyn, please ensure that you notify guests if the site is no longer suitable for 2WD and, if you don’t want guests to call, put all necessary instructions in your arrival messages (incl site no).

Paradise Waterhole
What a great way to getaway! No camping on top of each other, beautiful running water in the background, and lovely hosts. Excellent location with waterfalls around the corner and supplies not far either.. I’ll be back for sure.

Paradise Waterhole
A Private Paradise
We arrived to a large mowed camp area. There are only 2 sites at Paradise Waterhole and we really enjoyed complete private camp area, as no one else booked that weekend. Thank you Robyn for your accurate and simply directions. We had a fantastic weekend even thou it was rainy, as the pecan trees are like a big umbrellas.
