HIDING IN THE MIDDLE OF EVERYWHERE! Pure. Unadulterated. WILD. 104 very private acres, securely sandwiched between a National Park Nature Reserve and State Forest. On a dead end road. No agriculture or farms upstream, only one other like-minded property owner. Secluded, but hiding smack bang in the middle of everywhere! From vertiginous sandstone cliffs on which epipetrics cling tight, right through to palm-filled rainforests, and with two quite different creek systems (including a monster waterfall), you'll be spoiled for things to do and places to explore - without even leaving the property! HISTORY This land is Gumbaynggirr land. Please be particularly mindful of our First Nation's long presence on this land. In the 1800's, white men came seeking Red Cedar, closely followed by settlers having a go at dairying; though logging has remained this area's mainstay. This special property, despite last being selectively logged about 50 years ago, hosts many huge old-growth trees remaining steadfast for your discovery and wonder. And many more are continuing to grow out too. About 35 years ago about nine of this property's eastern-most 104 acres became part of a far larger nashi pear orchard which filled much of the flats of this top end of the valley that you see today. Ultimately they failed to set good commercial fruit, and the rootstocks took over. You can see remnant rows of these trees just south of the property, from along the road. (Beware though - they have spikes that could puncture Caterpillar tracks!) MORE RECENTLY extensive lantana control efforts have been undertaken as we now move into revegetating with native species and implementing a permaculture plan. Today the property is registered with Land For Wildlife and hosts a very wide mix of native vegetation communities. ACTIVITIES Bird watch. Climb. Abseil. Photograph wildflowers. Paint. Swim. In the next valley there's even gold to be found. Explore trails by mountain bike. Whale watch. Surf. Learn SCUBA. Go beach-combing. Catch a mudcrab. Go whitewater river rafting. Ask your host about where to find all the local waterfalls, the best walking, how to find gold, the gnarliest off-road tracks, Anything is possible here in this magnificent part of the world, except perhaps snow and ice.

Site 1 - WARATAHS. Fenced. Open treed.
We loved our weekend down south! Waterfall was amazing and felt super remote and private. Ron was a very warm and communicative host. I would definitely go back.

Rod was a great host, guiding us so that we could experience all his property has to offer (next time we will be venturing up to see the waterfall and pools), sharing his knowledge of the surrounding areas. The location is so peaceful, it was magical under the stars, enjoying the campfire. We will be back ☺️

We stayed over the Easter weekend with another family and our dogs who all had a fabulous time. The kids loved Captain Rod and Readys tractor ride and the dogs had the time of their lives roaming the site chasing balls and hanging with Ready. The waterfall was amazing. Love love loved it all, thanks for sharing your place Rod!!

Peaceful, beautiful, dog friendly
We loved camping on Rod's land for the long weekend, he and Reddy were great hosts. It was a magic little spot for our two families including two dogs. We really loved the waterfall and the kids enjoyed the tractor ride up there. There was some steep hills and tricky scrambling over rocks but we were prepared for that, we all made it and the challenge made it even better from the kids' point of view! Nearby are more waterfalls, rivers, mountain biking trails, gorgeous beaches, a fantastic local bakery and pub options.
