"The Orchard" is located at Crafty Cider and SMART Animal Sanctuary "The Orchard" is in the beautiful Kunama valley located 10 minutes from Batlow and 30 from the wonderful town of Tumbarumba. Set your camp up in our small Cider Apple orchard over looking the dam and our beautiful 55 acre farm. Get close up to the camels (Houdini, Sadeek and Gobi), Check out our beautiful big highland steer called Jimmy, Roger the donkey always likes a bum scratch, and see the many other animals that live here at Crafty Cider & SMART Animal Sanctuary. Kick back and listen to the quiet around you, enjoy the sounds of the birds and farm animals. "The Orchard" is a beautiful peaceful 5 minute walk down a gravel road with big trees to our Cidery where you can taste and take back to camp some of our cider or sit and have a drink while watching the animals being fed. Maybe book a tour where Tony will show you how we make our cider from the orchard to the bottle and Lorene will show you the amazing animals. You can always jump on your bike and head out on one of the many tracks in the area. You will need to be self sufficient and have your own toilet, water etc. There is no power in The Orchard. Head in Batlow to check out the bakery, RSL and Pub and admire the beauty of this small town. Or head upto Tumbarumba where you can visit the Winerys and Ginnery, have lunch at Coroubya wines,The Nest or one of the many cafes. Maybe take the challange of the Tumbarumba rail trail. Check out the water falls, the blowering dam and take in those beautiful mountain views.Located 10 minutes from Batlow in the beautiful Kunama Valley. There is plenty of room on our orchard block to pitch your tent or park your van.  You are surrounded by interesting animals including Camels, highland cattle, donkeys and cows. This is a very peaceful location where you can relax and enjoy the farm noises and the birds singing.  Guests are required to be fully self contained with their own toilet/shower facilities and must take all waste with them on departure. Just a 5 minute stroll down the beautiful gravel road lined with large trees and you will find yourself at our cellar door where you can try and purchase some of our delicious ciders. We also run a animal sanctuary on this property so you will always see a lot of different animals.   Locally we have rail trails, waterfalls, Blowering dam, world class cold climate winerys and plenty of other outdoor pursuits. Well behaved pets are welcome.

Birthday with camels 🐫 💕
We had a lovely time camping at the orchard for my birthday/Easter weekend. Lots of space to set up camp next to the apple orchard. We enjoyed waking up to the camels/ donkeys/ horses & highland cows every day. Was great to sit around the camp fire at night and watch the stars. Great spot to explore local fishing/4wd spots. It was great to be able to wander down the road for a cider or 2. Make sure you take lots of water & wood to enjoy your time there.

Great first experience staying at a hipcamp site. Very private but only a couple of kms off the main road. Cellar door was great as well. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a quiet and private place to camp.

This is a gem!
This spot is one of the most peaceful, tranquil, and private hipcamps that we’ve been to. We loved it it here. Plenty to do in neighbouring townships. Great cider and the owners pets (cows, camels, donkeys, horses) are a bonus.

Lovely quiet spot
Lovely quiet spot. Stayed one night overlooking the dam. Grass mowed. Didn’t use the fire pit due to rain but it would be lovely in better weather. Communication with Tony easy & clear. Would stay again.
