Camping with small kids
We had a wonderful stay at Jarravale. The billabong is an absolute delight and we were lucky enough to see a platypus on 2 occasions. Our kids enjoyed feeding the farm animals and playing with the cats. The animals are very well looked after and you can feel the love Josie has for them. The farm is immaculate and facilites were clean and very well presented. Thanks for having us Josie.

Josie was great with check in instructions, we had a peaceful campsite next to the Billabong, watching the platypus! The facilities were clean, great camp kitchen next to us and Josie was brilliant with the kiddies showing them around their farm and involving them in feeding the animals. A wonderful stay, we loved it - thank you to Josie and family!

We parked in an unpowered site right next to a billabong that had platypus. Beautiful animal nursery with cheeky baby goats as well as a huge variety of other animals. Hosts very friendly and you can help feed the animals which was a highlight. Rated our stay 5/5.

Jarravale was great! Campsite was nice and clean. Josie put us up closer to the facilities as it was raining on the first night. Campsite was nice and quiet even with quite a few other campers. We used the camp kitchen and it worked well and was clean. It was lovely and exciting to go and see the animals throughout our stay. Kids got to feed the baby goats and pat all different animals. Kids loved talking to the birds. We would stay again.
