Recent Hipcampers say this Hipcamp is great for families and kids.
I have 8 sites at the moment each one is in a open bushland setting with lovely views, no site is within 100 meters of another and each one has a different view with lots of privacy, and all Dog and Kid friendly, shallow water, and deep water for swimming or kayaking , creeks, animals to feed and heaps of room to run and play. Adult friendly, huge sites for big groups and plenty of space, great swimming and lots of things to here and in the surrounding areas. Some sites are more suited to Caravans as the access is better and some are better suited to campers / 4WD but all can be accessed with a regular car. We have NO road frontage so sites are private, quiet and safe and only 3ks off the New England Highway. All campers MUST bring their own Chemical toilet and shower facilities. A small rest room and shower is available in case of emergency only I run a working farm raising Sheep and Lambs, Chickens, Ducks, Horses, Donkeys, Vegies, Preserves and Jams. Farm produce is available on request and availability, eg Free range eggs , farm raised Lamb, locally sourced Bacon for the BBQ , and seasonal vegetables, jams and chutneys. Thanks to the Beautiful rain we have had recently, our large dam is full, providing a wonderful spot for swimming, paddling or just splashing about, the Dam has long sloping access so is great for families and dogs, PLEASE NOTE The Google Maps photo is way out of date, our Dam is full. For those who may be into Waterskiing or Fishing Leslie Dam is a 10 min drive away and offers fishing and water sports then come back to your quiet camp away from the crowds. We are 20 min South of Warwick, We are only 30 min from the Stanthorpe Wineries, Breweries fresh fruit and Vege, Cheese factory to name a few things to do. A little further along you will find Girraween National Park renowned for amazing walks. Warwick Hosts the Biggest and Best Campdraft and Rodeo on the last full week of October (Covid permitting) as well as the quirky Jumpers and Jazz festival in July.

(Ironbark Trees site) Beautiful views across the farm, peaceful environment, visits from friendly animals and a friendly, welcoming host - what's not to like about that? Cathy was a great host and she provided easy to follow instructions making finding the farm and the well-maintained site a breeze.

Silver Tank
Peaceful and Beautiful Location
A lovely, neat and well cared for farm with peaceful views, a great dam to swim and kayak in, and abundant bird life with a variety of farm animals. We absolutely loved our stay and found Cathy to be wonderful host who checked daily on the campers in her friendly, caring way. We stayed at Silver Tank which is a grassy area on a gentle slope above the lake. The weather was extra hot so we chose to set up camp among the small trees/bushes for extra shade. We had beautiful views across the farm and down to the dam. All the other campers were far enough away that we felt very private. We totally recommend camping at Carrington.

Had a great weekend, Cathy is very lovley and friendly, she came and checked on us to make sure we didn’t need anything. Was a very kid friendly camp with loads of animals and shallow water for the kids to swim.
