‘Highveld' Estate is nestled at the foot of the Watagan mountains, 60min north of Hornsby on the M1. Registered 'Land for Wildlife', this pocket of paradise is simply an unforgettable destination for birding enthusiasts and any nature-loving folk, offering privacy for all guests. Enjoy walking, bird watching and observing the abundance of wallabies in the afternoons. Occasionally we spot echidnas and wombats in the flats; daily the fallow deer make their rounds. A destination sure to refresh and invigorate, this is a birders' paradise and wildlife lovers' haven, with over 70 species of birds spotted already... and counting! Enjoy easy access from our property to Watagan 4WD tracks, picnic areas and bike tracks. For fishing, boating, kayaking, canoeing, we are a short 25min drive to beautiful Lake Macquarie, 25min from the award-winning Awaba mountain bike tracks and within 40min drive to a variety of beaches.

Willife Sanctuary
This property is very nice. Very quiet. You are literally camped at the base of the Watagan Mountains. So much wildlife. Many species of birds and kangaroos. If you are quiet you will see the fallow deer that frequent the property. Access is good and the firepit made the nights special with a campfire watching the meteor showers.

Quiet spot with great hosts
Quiet, private camping spot easily accessible by 4WD with tents or camper trailer. Friendly hosts and good instructions on how to locate, site rules, etc. Accommodated our need for some late changes and flexibility on departure. Would definitely stay again.

The Stockyard
Amazing location! We had a fantastic stay at the Stockyards. Easy access to a serene site, surrounded by nature. Hosts went out of their way to make us welcome, bringing firewood and helping out in the morning when our car wouldn’t start. We will definitely be back!
