Imago Forest is a beautiful bush block and biodynamic orchard near Mt Royal National Park. There are spectacular views over the valley and lake. Just 3hrs from Sydney. Some things to do on the property: * Sit back and take in the incredible views * Roast marshmallows around a campfire * Walk in gorgeous tall forests with some century old trees * Swim in the dam * Climb in the tree next to the cottage * Tour of the permaculture mandala garden (when I'm around) About camping here: * 4WD and AWD access - all year around. * 2WD access - Oct-May in dry weather. (The Big Shed site is 2WD accessible all year) * Families are welcome * Well-behaved dogs are welcome * There is mobile phone reception at some of the sites. Sometimes it isn't fantastic, at other times you can stream Netflix. Some of the things you can do nearby: * Do the majestic Mt Royal walk * Fish or boat on nearby Lake St Clair * Stop in at some of the Hunter Valley wineries on your way * Search online for "Carrowbrook forecast" to get the closest weather forecast

Secluded Clearing
Nice and simple
The privacy of the area is nice and it is a very simple bit of cleared land that could do with a bit more clearing in the middle where the cars drive round. So long as you bring everything with you, it's enough as a little base of operations. Zip all your tents up and be mindful of the leeches around the place too.

Back to basics, real camping!
Site described well, Julian rang to make sure i knew what i was getting into, and did offer alternatives as the site is pretty raw, I declined as was happy to take the wipper snipper to clean up before we set up camp. Only enough room for 1 camper and car, and recommend 4WD, especially if taking a trailer or camper. (2wd can get in, but if it rains your not getting out) oh and watch out for the leaches!

Lovely people and great location
Lovely people and great location. You can see glimpse of lake St.Clair from the property. Imago Forest is quite impressive with huge eucalyptus trees and ferns. Saw red tail black cockatoos at the campsite in the morning that came to say hi (well actually just to eat some berries off the trees).

Hammock Site
Cute spot with nice views.
A beautiful spot. With a nice valley view. A lil pricey for what it is. Only down sides no trails or clear paths at the site but the national park has some great peaks that are well worth 20 min drive. Many leeches when wet and a rather large wasp nest by the toilet. There is also a gorgeous red belly to be aware of.

Adventure with warm accommodation
Fantastic weekend. Feels like an adventure yet very cosy and friendly environment. Julian was very accommodating. The campsites neat with wood all chopped and ready for you! Plenty to spare foraging in bush lands surrounding also. Shady spots and dam to swim in. My family of 6 loved every minute. Thankyou

We loved our weekend at Julian’s farm. Being so close to Lake St Clair during the day but being able to drive to the secluded camp site was amazing. The drive in and out was fun too. Definitely recommend and will be back.
