I will be back
Was fantastic right in the heart of the Aussie bush. Outskirts of Guy Fawkes National park. Really peaceful, and its not too far from Ebor. Peter is a great host.

Bluegum dreaming
Peter is an absolute legend, he went over and above to make sure we got to our site okay, and checked that we were okay after a storm the next day. We had a 2WD (definitely a 4WD only site) and the road was pretty slippery after the storm, so we setup at the first site that we reached on the property. It was magical, the land is so beautiful. So serene and sheltered, we were visited by black cockatoos and owls. Very remote, we couldn’t hear any of the other campers. A few leeches to watch out for, but that’s just the nature of this area. I can’t wait to come back in a 4by and experience the ridge and rivers. Thanks heaps Peter!

Blue gum holiday
If you are seeking solitude deep in the bush then this place is for you. We spent a lovely Easter watching bird life Twitter amongst the blue gums and living life slowly. The creek was steep to get to but not far and worth it with a small water fall! Pete is a friendly guy, we liked him instantly.
