Large campsite in the beautiful Hunter Valley region, with plenty of level, grassed space to park self-contained campers, caravans and motor homes. Pull up beside "the pond" (the dam) on the property, or find yourself a wide-open grassy patch or a shaded corner. Plentiful birdlife, and kangaroos passing through daily! Our local area has a lot to offer including Hunter Valley gardens, beer breweries, wineries, restaurants, clubs, bars, golf course and more. Grocery shops within a few minutes drive. We're in a very convenient, central location! Campfires are permitted in the designated fire pits when restrictions/bans are not in place. We have firewood available to purchase on-site.

Do it!
We had truly the best time. Janette was so attentive to our needs (despite us being a pain, and needing to be near the gate so we could come back late from a concert). She had suggestions for best breakfast spots and was a delight to speak to. The property itself is wonderful.

Peaceful & quiet
Loved the peacefulness & being amongst the beautiful trees. Lots of space to ourselves. Nice & quiet. Loved watching the Kangaroos too. Super easy to get to, just off the expressway. Lovely host. Lots of flies so I recommend bringing the repellant, but everything else was perfect. Will be back.

Fabulous spot grassy with trees and a lovely dam. Not far from vineyards with a friendly welcoming host, we will definitely be back.

So close to everything yet so quiet
This was our second visit and we enjoyed it just as much as the first. So close to the vineyards but yet so quiet and spacious. Our dogs love it too.

Lovely peaceful camp site next to a small pond with lots of birds and frogs at night. Owners were very friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend staying there.

Flat camping with paddock view
Camping was fun. Just husband and I. Janette was very friendly. Got a nice flat area which had been freshly mown. Only issue was the amount of Mosquitoes of a night time.

Perfect for the Hunter Region!
We absolutely loved staying on this property! The location is perfect to explore the Hunter Region, with everything literally on the door step. The property is beautiful with a lovely outlook to the billabong. Very private spot with easy access and holds up well in the rain. Janette is a wonderful host and looked in on us during our stay to make sure that we had everything that we needed. We will most definitely come back and stay again. One of our top picks so far!

Such a great location so close to a lot of the wineries and distilleries in the Hunter valley. Jeanette was so accommodating and so generous to map out a route for us to explore the recommended wineries. The property was beautiful and peaceful. We parked our camper close to the lovely dam which is heavy with a frog population. I recognised 4 different types of frogs while sitting of an evening listening to them. Thank you Jeanette for a lovely stay overnight at your property.

Camping at the frog pond!
Such a beautiful spot with such hospitable hosts! They have such a beautiful spot for people to enjoy next to their little froggie filled waterhole. We spent a day in the vineyards picking up some yummy wine and cheese.

Visiting the wineries
We had a very enjoyable stay camped by the dam watching kangaroos in the afternoon. Large grassy flat field with plenty of room amongst the trees or in the open sun. Firewood was available to purchase and use in firepits supplied. Hosts were very friendly and helpful and it was a great base to see the Hunter Valley wineries.

Peace n quiet yet close to wineries
Was going to give a poor review just to scare people off so we could have this one to ourselves: :-). This was our best Hipcamp experience so far. We arrived after dark and Janette had already started the camp fire before greeting us. We were plonked in prime position in front of the billabong and awoke to a well-maintained site with lots of roos and their joeys. It was very quiet, being well away from the main homestead and any roads. This Hipcamp is only 15 min from the closest vineyards and 10min into Branxton, which has a nice pub, coffee shop, IGA and a bakery. Top stay. Recommended that future visitors take the firewood option!

Janette greeted us on arrival and was a great host. Our camp spot was very private, level and well maintained, with a picnic table and fire pit. Beautiful location next to a dam and with kangaroos in morning and the evening. Excellent spot very close to many Hunter Valley vineyards and cellar doors.

Wonderful hosts Janette and Ted. Was our first experience with Hipcamp!! Plenty of space and soft grass, fire pit and wood was the perfect option for the night as it was pretty cold! Woke up to kangaroos at our doorstep what a wonderful peaceful and quite location will be back again

Great paddock camping!
Janette was a lovely host! The first night was a struggle with little shelter from the wind, so keep that in mind if the wind is forecast to be strong! Second night was amazing, we set up the tent near the back dam after Janette told us the people camping there had left, and had a great night.

The Vineyards Doorstep was a fantastic place to camp. There is so much space that you feel like you are the only people there. Janette is so helpful and makes you feel very welcome. We got to see lots of kangaroos on the property and a beautiful sunset as well. We will definitely be back.

Campfire, Wildlife, Grassy ...
Great little spot down by the dam for camping - kangaroos and wildlife everywhere :). So great that we could order some firewood and a campfire setup from the owner, easy, hassle free camping about 15min drive from all the good wineries etc
