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.EXCLUSIVE PRIVATE SITE - 3 BEAUTIFUL ACRES ALL TO YOURSELF We know that sometimes you just have to get away from everyone. If you want to get away from the rat race for a while this is ideal.  3 acres to yourself. The property is close to Finch Hatton Gorge and Eungella National Park with waterfalls and walks too. We take one group at a time so you have the entire site all to yourselves.  There is plenty of room for up to 6 vehicles if you want to bring friends or perhaps you are a couple and just want some privacy. Once we have shown you to the site we'll leave you alone to enjoy - no need to see anyone else if you don't want to! There are no facilities available, no mobile coverage, just your group and mother nature including a beautiful fresh water creek.   The site is not suitable for large caravans (not enough turning space), but is suitable for Camper trailers, camper vans, motor-homes etc equipped with toilet.   Well behaved dogs are very welcome.

What a beautiful place to park up & spend a few days relaxing & exploring finch hatton. Donna was such a good host. Would recommend booking when creek water a bit higher so you can swim in own creek on site but we stayed specifically for a birthday & it was a great way to celebrate.

A little piece of paradise
A beautiful place to get away from the hustle and bustle, completely off the grid with no phone service. Perfect place to make you relax and unwind. Huge area with multiple places to set up camp. The creak is crystal clear a great place to cool off on a hot day. This is truly a little hidden gem.

Beautiful spot , nice and private with the creek running right beside our campsite. Lovely to listen to the water flowing over the rocks when we went to bed at night

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.
