**Our camping sites vary in size and proximity to others. If you want to come with a group with several vehicles etc, please send a message rather than book separate sites. We will help find a site which suits your needs. We now have several secluded bush camp sites as alternatives to our more 'civilised' sites. They have no facilities apart from the site so you must be entirely self-sufficient. But all are single sites well away from others. We invite you to come and share our property, soak up the tranquility of our quiet valley and enjoy feeling at home in nature. And your dog is welcome too (under control please because we value our wildlife, and no more than 2 dogs per couple or family group)! The land is nearly 200 Ha in the western foothills of the Dividing Range, with the usually-flowing North Branch Creek being a green haven supporting lots of wildlife. It also includes the secluded back valley of Hann Creek to which you can walk, cycle or ride, with many tracks of lengths up to 3 km. The land is mostly open forest land with some cleared areas from its dairy-farming history, and many gullies with thicker vegetation. The property is mostly now dedicated to nature conservation and the recovery of its more natural state. It is a Nature Refuge under Qld legislation with special emphasis on recognising that the land is Githabul country, honouring local Githabul people now, sharing it with them and others, plus preserving species of plants and animals with known relevance to their former lifestyles. The name Nyalar Mirungan-ah means 'Old Women's Tears' in Githabul, and recognises that they cry because the land was taken from them and because it has not been looked after well by European people. We are now trying to care for it well, and to allow the original ecosystems to return, by lighter grazing, soil recovery and using traditional Aboriginal burning knowledge. And we welcome dogs as long as they don't disturb our wildlife. Shandy, our own dog, is very welcoming to guests and might drop in to your camp for a visit.

Site 1 - The Waterhole
Peaceful but still close to town
Beautiful place, remote but close enough to Warwick if you need anything. We had the area to ourselves so very quiet and private. The toilet was very clean and ecological friendly. The dogs loved the waterhole and I'm sure we will too once the creek is running again, due to the lack of rain the pool wasn't good for swimming. We will definitely book again.

Site 1 - The Waterhole
Awesome spot for a relaxed weekend.
This was an awesome spot for a relaxed weekend. David the host was very friendly and welcoming. The camp site was very private. It was surrounded by trees and plenty of friendly bush animals. We had a bilby walk right up to our camp fire on the second night. It was incredible. I'd never seen one before. I loved every bit and the kids enjoyed it too. Just remember to keep your food and supplies secure at night, in case a possum comes looking.... 😉 Thank you David for a great weekend!
