Stay at our secure and peaceful property, 50kms from Darwin city, just off the Stuart Hwy, and ideally located to explore this wonderful region. Pitch your tent or park your camper/caravan on level ground, with plenty of space to spread out. We also offer a self-contained cabin. We have 7 acres of beautiful Paperbark Forest often teeming with butterflies we recommend wondering through. Lots of visiting wildlife too, including wallabies and birdlife aplenty. In the neighbouring paddock is our two resident Water Buffalo, a very friendly mother and daughter pair. You're welcome to feed them carrots over the fence - they'll love you for it! Campers will have access to a shower and compost toilet (located in the self-contained cabin - which will not be occupied while we have campers here). The property is 40 minutes to Darwin city, just off the Stuart Hwy, and ideally located to be your base camp whilst you head out on day trips to the National Parks, popular tourist spot, Berry Springs Nature Park, Florence Falls, Buley Rockhole, Adelaide River, Noonamah tavern, and more. We're a family-friendly place to stay over, including your dog!

Site 3 - Paperbark Farm Camping & RV Spot
Amazing Hosts,Great Place,Peaceful!
I stayed at the paperback farm for 4 nights. It was excellent place to unwind and relax. Shawn and Sally were amazing hosts, giving carrots to myself and Max (another camper that was there) to feed the 2 buffalo with, sharing their pool with us, and updating us regularly about the fires that were in the area. The amenities were clean, and so were the grounds. It was super close to Berry springs and coolalinga shops. I highly recommend the paperback farms as a great resting point to and from darwin.

Fantastic, family friendly camping
We loved our stay at Paperbark Farm! Shawn and family were such amazing hosts. We had a quiet peaceful spot on the property with beautiful surroundings. Shawn showed us through the paperbark plantation and the kids loved seeing the butterflies. The kids also loved Indi the dog and feeding the Water Buffalo. Would highly recommend staying here and we will definitely be returning on our next trip to Darwin and surrounds.

Great spot to spend a few nights, close to Berry Springs. Shawn was a friendly and generous host, and I had the advantage of a peaceful, private and comfortable camp. Outdoor bathroom was great, resident dogs and bonus water buffalo were sweet! If you're sensitive to noise just be aware that the property is right off the highway.
