Great property for couples, families or larger groups. Each site individual to the group. Sally and Brian invite you to enjoy camping on their beautiful property. Surrounded by Yengo National Park and Crown land, Earthways is 134 ha (330 acre) property near Wollombi in a secluded part of the Wollombi Valley. Come and enjoy the noises of the bush and the clear night skies with no human neighbors close. No mobile reception. (Phone and wifi for emergencies at our house.) We (Brian and Sally) have been re-vegetating the land and living here sustainably being “Off Grid” for over 40years, surrounded by bush with 3km of Stockyard creek meandering through the valley. We would love to share this paradise with those wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Dogs welcome but kept on a lead. No leeches and No ticks in this area. NO close neighbors. Perfect spot to pitch your tent or set up your camper next to Stockyard creek. After a few small floods we now have water in the creek. Lots of sunshine and lots of shade. Easy dirt road access (5km) Some sites require/recommend 4WD check each site separately. Come and take advantage of the Wollombi Valley's beautiful scenery and atmosphere. Sit and relax or get adventurous and explore the area. The historic village of Wollombi is only 25 minutes away, and has cafes, shop, museum and the Wollombi Tavern. The popular Broke and Pokolbin wine regions are a short 25-40 minute drive away in the opposite direction. Yengo National Park has some wonderful look out spots-great to take a picnic to Finchley Lookout to watch the sun set or check out Aboriginal art sites. You may see wombats, kangaroos, echidnas, goanna's, kookaburras, lyre birds black cockatoos and so many other native birds/creatures. Stunning rock features, caves, diverse ecosystems with abundant native fauna and flora. We are situated in a valley. Each of our 5 separate camp sites are for your own private space.

Private possum hideout
Brian & Sally’s property is absolutely amazing! Our campsite was completely secluded, right next to a creek with a campfire pit as well! The property offers some amazing nature walks which our four legged friend loved. Situated in the Hunter Valley we also were able to hit up a few wineries whilst in the area. Brian & Sally were absolutely lovely and were very accomodating. I would highly recommend this campsite to anyone looking for a weekend getaway

Private Goanna site
Excellent site. Plenty of dead wood around for firewood which was great. Serene, secluded and private. We had a fantastic time.

Private Bowerbird Site
Picturesque Site Next to Creek
The ‘private bowerbird site’ exceeded our expectations. Photos on site don’t do it justice. Beautiful flat grassy site with rock fire pit. The hosts provided kindling. There is a creek out the front of the site and many wombat holes! We were hoping to see one but were without luck. Site is very private with next to no noise, only the sounds of birds to wake you up. We saw many shooting stars from our swag. It was a great experience.

Private wombat site
Awesome private & peaceful camping location, super quiet and beautiful scenery. Rather well sheltered from the wind but still plenty of sunshine. Firepit and firewood provided were great for keeping warm and camp toilet was good addition. Plenty of space on the site and great view of the stars at night. Lots of bush walks and wildlife around - many wombat holes but didn’t see any wombats during our stay. In close proximity to many local wineries also. Brian and Sally were very welcoming and helpful hosts. Definitely recommend staying here!
