Hectic Valley Farm is located at Mutchilba on 100 acres within the beautiful Atherton Tablelands, North Queensland. Spacious campsites are beside or near a massive dam that attracts a great variety of bird life and the amazing sunsets are different each day. 🌅 Three spacious spots are available a few short meters from the edge of a large dam (sites can be seen from the farm road) with another completely secluded site amongst the bushland. Bird watchers dream with the constant residents and seasonal birds flying in for the dam. Swim, kayak, catch and release fish, throw in a RedClaw pot or hunt for mussel clams. Do some hiking or 4 wheel driving around the hundred acres with our 4 wheel driving tracks. Meet the Farm Animals where campers can chat with the menagerie of animals we have on the farm such as Clydesdale horses, camels, sheep, cows, chickens, buffalo, peafowl, ducks and friendly geese. Hold newly hatched poultry, friendly chickens and maybe even lambs. Bookings are essential come by the farmhouse and meet at the gazebo. We are 10mins from Dimbulah or 20mins to Mareeba with their many attractions. We can tell you all about the many attractions and activities this area has to offer. Please Note: Cattle Creek and Waterfront Campsites are accessible by 2WD. The other campsites are 4WD access only and with off road campers/caravans only (high clearance to get through a dry creek crossing). These are self contained sites so please take your own shower and toilet facilities and take away all waste. Well behaved dogs are allowed but must be supervised at all times for the protection of the sheep, poultry, wildlife and not to be brought to the house yard. Sorry no motorbikes or ATV’s. We have a wet season (December to March) and dry season (September to December) choose your ideal times to stay. For more info on us visit our website. www.hecticvalleyfarm.com.au

Cattle Creek Campsite
Camping with the animals!
Highly recommended they are super friendly and the camp sites were so big the kids had plenty of room to run around and explore as well as the dam. Beautiful spot and just so much to see and do.

Short term
Overall a decent experience. Rate owners 11/10. Unfortunately other campers had set-up where we had booked (not owners fault-the campers didn't check-in first and set up) and so we were moved to the cattle creek site. It was fine, hosts were lovely, animals happy and content. We felt a bit too exposed at the site we were on with another group sending their kids right near us for toileting and access to the water, also there were fresh signs of toileting around us-again, not owners fault at all- they were accommodating, kind, friendly and honest. Good for short term stay.

Pandanus Campsite
Great private spot, unseen by others. Big space but felt "cosy" due to pandanus's and trees plus a creek bed. Ground level and lots of options to set up. Plenty of shade and access to sun for solar. Certainly would choose this site again. Worth visiting the farm for animal feeding.

Water Lily Campsite
Lots of animals to feed and see, nice big camping spot. We camped in waterlily I thought it was right by damn between to creeks, but you actually camp behind a small hill. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets.

Water Lily Campsite
Such a wonderful camping area. So close to the dam but with plenty of privacy. It was great to see so much wildlife. Very relaxed camping site.

Fantastic spot
A fantastic spot and lovely hosts! We loved the animal feeding, fishing in the dam, mud baths in the dam, fire pits provided, HUGE sites all all private and away from each other. We have a 4wd and semi off road (9.5m long) van and camped at the lillypond, she was a bit scary getting in and out of the little creek crossing but came out pretty well unscathed!
