Eclectic Bush Haven Camp Ground 1
Thanks Julie for a wonderful stay. Luxury camping, immersed in nature and away from the crowds. The property has a wonderful open outdoor kitchen with everything you could need, flushing toilets and hot water showers. Just BYO drinking water as on tank water here on the property. I soaked up the serenity, combining both work and rest/recovery. Julie and her husband were very hospitable and made me feel welcome, accommodating all of my needs during my stay. Would definitely recommend this stay for a short or long stay. I'll definitely be back.

Eclectic Bush Haven Camp Ground 1
Group camping experience
Fantastic little intimate camp ground. Although we didn't use the camp kitchen much, it comes fully stocked with everything you need. The grounds do slope a little but we set up camp near the kitchen which is very flat and catches the early morning sun. There were only 2 other groups camping so we had plenty of space but I could see setting up on the slope could be an issue for some if the camp ground was packed. Overall the property is very eclectic and we all loved the walking around the area. Lots of kookaburras and a few kangaroos to keep children entertained. We would definitely recommend Julie's property to others.

Entire Property Hire - Exclusive
This property is private and serene. My 50th birthday party went off without a hitch. The camp kitchen served us well and later became our stage/dance floor. Anyone thinking of an exclusive booking I totally recommend. I will be sure to stay here again.

Thanks Julie your property is beautiful. Just what we needed nice relaxing place for a group of friends to catch up and spend together. Even our fur babies could run around and have fun together. Only a short drive to the beautiful coast line for swimming, fishing or surfing. We highly recommend!
