Anzac long weekend
It was lovely little spot, not far out of Sorell and a short trip to the peninsula. Great views of the mountain and nice farming areas. A shame no water in the creek. Very well maintained camping spot. With good access for caravans.

Excellent farm stay
The directions to find the Hipcamp were great and wasn’t an issue. It is a busy Hwy so give plenty of notice of your intention to pull in. The campground was flat and with plenty of room. Michael unfortunately had Covid but was welcoming on the phone. We will stay again at this spot for sure.

Quiet solitude
A absolutely lovely quiet spot with great views of distant hills. Michael is a great host. Pity it rained for the three days there but still relaxing. Highly recommend

A beautiful, quiet spot! We had a fantastic few nights away as a family. Our kids enjoyed roaming the camp area and chatting to the local farm animals. Michael was a great host 😊 We hope to stay again!
