All to yourself
100% of recent Hipcampers say this Hipcamp felt private.
If you want to get away from the rat race for a while this is your ideal location. We take one booking at any one time. You have the site all to yourselves. Your site is three acres of privacy and seclusion, rainforest and a beautiful freshwater creek. Close to walks to Araluen Cascades and the Wheel of fire falls at Finch Hatton Gorge. There are no facilities here, so you need to be fully self-contained. No wifi. No mobile coverage (great to get the kids off the screens). There is plenty of water, firewood and wildlife though. Sometimes you won't be able to access the site as creek floods in heavy rain - can be cut off. Well behaved dogs are welcome. Please note check in is between 2 pm and 5 pm unless arranged otherwise. Access is best suited to 4WD or High Clearance vehicles. Not suitable for small cars. The site is suitable for caravans/trailers 6 metres long or smaller. We can accommodate up to six vehicles on the site (for a large group. travelling together). Forest Flying rainforest activity is next door. ($90 per person - booking essential). Please see www.forestflying.com for details. NOTE: check our directions once your booking is confirmed.

Special off grid bush camp
Such a special and peaceful bush camp. The rainforest creek was lovely for a quick dip a few times a day. The camp sites are spotless with plenty of fire wood. The fire pits are natural rock. We had the whole block to ourselves. A great spot to recharge.

Serenity in the bush.
OMG this is a little slice of serenity in the bush. I think we have found our our fav camp spot to distress. Donna and hubby give you 3 acres to yourself to explore. About 6 camp sites to choose from all with fire pits. They have access along the running creek, where you can sit, meditate and listen to the birds or sit is the fresh water. If your looking for complete relaxation in the bush this is it. The best part no phone reception.

Unique and precious
Firstly, Donna and Dave were two of the most beautiful souls you could meet, not only did they meet us at the gate to show us through, they also got to work unpacking firewood for us as well as a few cheeky homegrown ruby grapefruits for our camp cocktails! The site was amazing, the river was beautiful and refreshing, the wildlife was out and about and the privacy made the trip a step above the rest, truly unique and precious. Can’t wait to make this place a frequent go to for the future.

Peace & tranquility
Still my favourite local spot to escape to for a quick over nighter. Creek was looking gorgeous after all the rain but too cold to get in and enjoy it! Thanks again Donna. Be back again soon.
