Long Flat Campsite
Our family loved this site (2 Adults, 1 Kid and an excited pup). We were lucky enough to have the whole of the Flat to ourselves - with many people opting for the waterhole instead. There was plenty of space so I could see how busy it would be around christmas time. There's alot of beautiful native birds around, lovely bush to explore and we even encountered our first wild wombat! The toilet was great - loved that it had water to flush with. Mal was very helpful and gave us permission to take our 4x4 on any of the roads we found. We will 100% be coming back in the near future. Absolute stunner of a property - Cheers Mal and Jane!

Great Oz Day weekend camping
Great area with lots of different camping sites and options. Two portaloos close by but one out of service. There was a shower setup but think it needed power? Not sure what the go was with that. But Mal the host dropped by on occasions and was a great character. Had a fantastic time.

We really enjoyed our time at Maiden Jewel. We ended up at the Waterhole and it was lovely - our dog enjoyed it as much as we did! Plenty of space so you didn't feel crowded in and very peaceful. Great for caravan or tent as paddock was completely flat and there were portaloo's and showers. Shady or sunny spots and a dam to swim in. Mal and Jane were great hosts - Mal took us for a ride around on the gator and we have picked our spot for our next stay as we will definitely be back! Thanks for looking after us so well Mal.

Absolutely amazing spot! So quiet and peaceful, the waterhole was definitely needed after spending the day in sun. The surroundings were captivating. Everyone was super friendly & made it a positive environment to be in. *Warning* to young females staying together, that the owner of the property made unsolicited comments that made us feel uncomfortable. We continued to stay at the site & kept our wits about us, there were plenty of families & older couples within proximity of the site that made us feel safe enough to continue our stay. But would advise against camping as a female alone.

Great property with plenty of different camp sites but also a few downsides. The biggest issue for us was that there’s no actual lake or river/ creek on site, which was our own fault for not researching properly beforehand. There’s a waterhole but it isn’t that great for swimming. The second issue was that we were promised fire wood that never arrived even after asking several times for it. Just bring your own wood and you’ll be fine. The big plus on campsite were the clean toilets and the shower worked great as well. All in all, can recommend!

The place is lovely. We camped in the Flat water area which is more private and only 2 other campers were there. The water is quite muddy but we enjoyed swimming. The horses approached to drink as well as a Wallaby. My kids looooved it!

Loved camping here with my partner and our two dogs! The dogs had a great time and was great to be able to take them along with us Very well maintained property, extremely clean loo’s. Very friendly and welcoming hosts! Mal gave us a tour upon arrival gave us the option to pick our campsite. We actually had a whole dam to ourselves which was awesome! We will be back that’s for sure!

We loved camping on janes land, the kids caught perch and yabbies in the dam and played with turtles. So much wild life to see and bush to explore.

Private and spacious. Awesome tour of the farm to see all the animals (cows horse kangaroo). Owners came to say hi and check everything was OK. Has reception! Portaloos are flushable but are very cleaned and well maintained. There were showers but we did not use

The campsites are much bigger compared to other camping grounds. We loved the view, hike and location. The only problem was with the road heading to waterhole camp-site, it was mentioned on the hipcamp that the sites are accessible with both 4WD and 2WD, but for us it was a bit of struggle as we had a Toyota Estima 2WD. Overall loved everything about this campground, would definitely come again

Spacious camp sites
Lovely property, mowed campsites, very good portaloo toilet’s available. Had a dip in the dam as it was hot, take a pool noodle to float around. Great star gazing at night, good burning fire wood, definitely worth buying off Jane. Visit the Wash pools in the National Park is a must for a swim and climb burning mountain.

Classic country farm country.
Pleasant farm country, open paddocks, dams with loads of yabbies. They had hired porta-toilets and showers, but they were new and clean.

Stunning property and fantastic communication from the first moment we booked. Mal met us at the front gate, showing us to The Waterhole, which was beautiful and we felt very welcome. We met Jane a short time later and enjoyed her local knowledge and daily visits for a chat. Very pleasant and enjoyable stay. Highly recommend and we will definitely visit again when our travels take us back in that direction. Thanks heaps.

Jane was a very friendly host, happy to answer any questions we had. The waterhole was a nice camping spot with plenty of area to keep spread out, with amazing views of the cliffs surrounding the land. Had lots of fun driving around the property and chilling out for the day on our hammock underneath the trees

Waterhole (not long flat)
Jane moved me to waterhole where there were more people after she asked about my preference. I did go during the new year countdown so it was both busy and very hot. Shade was very limited- more so I should come more prepared. The porta potty is cleaned everyday, however when it was at its max peak (Nye eve when everyone is up till 2am) we probably needed another clean close to midnight. There was two showers and I believe water and power points. The starry night was gorgeous and it was lovely to wake up to bird calls. I drove in with a FWD sedan and was a bit nervous about the dirt road but both my car and dog are fine. As a novice camper, I found it an overall good experience and would happily return with more gear and much lesser people.
