Watton Airstrip is a stunning property, nestled on the banks of the Macquarie River. Featuring nine riverside campsites, along with paddock and bush sites, all 4WD accessible and two equally stunning 2WD accessible sites. You’ll share our spaces with kangaroos, wallabies, emus, echidnas, deer, platypus and more. Enjoy some optional extras, including Tammie's home made bread, farm fresh, free range eggs, or one of our range of grazing platters, home made jams or hot chocolate kits. Or pamper yourself with a Crystal reiki session, or tarot reading. The 2WD accessible sites feature spectacular views to the right, towards Mt Panorama and Mt Horrible and towards Mt Canobolas to the left. Lie back in your swag at night and let the star struck, velvety sky envelope you, or make a booking at the nearby Bathurst Observatory to see the stars up close. Each campsite offers its own unique features for you to enjoy and a hand crafted pit toilet is accessible to those camped along the river bank. Fish or swim in the river, ride your bikes, or set up camp and then head off on an adventure to the Goldfields at Ophir, or History Hill at Hill End via the Bridle Track. Better still, book into a pub crawl with Damo so you can lie back and enjoy the ride. There are plenty of opportunities for 4WDing and bushwalking in the local area. Fires are allowed (fire restrictions permitting). Wood can be collected from fallen wood around the property, or bring your own if you prefer. Pets are welcome for a one off fee per animal. We do ask that pets are supervised at all times and that they do not interfere with farm animals or local wildlife.

The Deep Spot 4WD Only
Anzac Weekend getaway
This was our third visit to Watton Airstrip and as usual it didn't disappoint! We were blessed with perfect sunny days and very cool nights. The boys enjoyed riding their mountain bikes and the kayaks had a good workout. Fishing was fun but not fruitful and we enjoyed having alpacas, wallabies, horses and deer near the campsite. Damien and Tammie are amazing hosts and we are so grateful that they are willing to share their piece of paradise with ourselves and other respectful campers.

The Deep Spot 4WD Only
We have stayed at Damien and Tammie’s a few times now and we love it more every time we stay, Damien and Tammie are the best hosts it was cold and wet on the weekend and Damien lit 🔥 a fire in the new camp kitchen we have stayed at the Deep Spot twice now it’s a great spot you can have your own fire and a flat spot easy to park your caravan with amazing views and right on the river.
