*With respect, please read and understand booking details. Please reach out to me with any questions!* Situated in the quiet town of Maydena, the old oval property runs along the Tyenna River, home to platypus and freshwater fish. The town itself is home to the famous Maydena Bike Park and within 10 minutes drive to Mt Field National Park on the east side and a beautiful 1 hour drive to Strathgordon on the west side. Walking up Junee Road you will find walks to the local caves and other stunning hikes. The oval is right next to the Railtrack Riders who provide visitors with access to pedal-powered railway carts. The camping here is for self-contained campers only, those that have their own toilet and take all waste when they go. Please no ground fires as they leave burn patches in the grass. Weather permitting (no fire bans), happy for you to have a firepit as long as it is elevated off of the ground (brazier) and leaves no trace.The local Tyenna River hosts native platypus and trout. Views of the surrounding mountain ranges are stunning. Railtrack Riders is a self propelled tour company operating on the old logging train line going through Maydena, and they are situated right next to our entrance! The town is host to the famous Maydena Bike Park, a short walk to the Junee Caves, 10 minutes drive to Mt. Field National Park borders on the west coast conservation area arguably the best drive in Tasmania to Strathgordon. The area is for self-contained campers, you must have your own camp toilet and take all waste with you. Following general Leave No Trace principles.
