The property is partly cleared and partly forested and is situated on, and surrounded by, a bend in the Mersey River in the shadow of the Gog Range. Stooge Farm is home to abundant wildlife including wallabies, echidna, wombats and a healthy population of platypus which can often be sighted at dusk along the river. Embrace rest, swimming, canoeing, fishing, barbequing, bushwalking, birdwatching in the lost world of Stooge Farm, Weegena Valley, Tasmania. Some of the best fishing in Tasmania is right at your doorstep. Only 20 minutes from the lovely regional town of Deloraine where you can stock up on supplies, enjoy a good coffee and the many amenities and historic streetscapes. It is a great launching place for all kinds of nature-based activities such as bushwalking, white-water rafting, rock-climbing, mountain biking and more. Cradle Mountain, the Great lake, the upper Mersey Valley, the Western Tiers and extensive World Heritage wilderness areas are all within an hour or so of Stooge Farm. Stooge Farm is located in its own peaceful valley along the Mersey River and has some of the best fishing, swimming and kayaking opportunities you could find anywhere. There are numerous campsites along the riverbanks, as well as beautiful walks along the river. Stooge Farm is a safe and secluded place away from the hustle and bustle of the mad modern world. As well as camping, it is also available to rent for a variety of purposes; as the ultimate fishing retreat, for wedding, birthday and other significant life events, as a yoga, meditation and lifestyle retreat, or simply the ultimate holiday destination. This is such a special place that you really need to come and experience it for yourself to believe it. We await your visit. *Some important notes before you book: Campers must have their own toilet and must remove all waste and rubbish. Dogs are welcome but must be leashed. River water is available but drink at own risk. We recommend a strong vehicle, and a 4WD when towing caravans as the road in is steep.

Great Tassie wilderness experience
Great place to camp, swim, kayak and fish. I have visited this place 3 times in the last month as it’s easy to get too but still off the beaten track. It’s quite, shaded and safe to swim. There’s plenty of fish about as well as Tassie wildlife. We were fortunate to see the resident platypus and a bunch of birds, wallabies etc. Richard is a great host and makes it easy to roll on in to your campsite.

Stooge camp
Great overnight stay at camp stooge with a river frontage site. Lovely swimming out front and some great trout fishing throughout the campgrounds. Richard was easy to communicate with and provided clear info about access to sites and firewood supplies. Overall a great little camp and we can’t wait to get back for a longer stay

Amazingly peaceful
What an amazing beautiful peaceful place. We stayed 2 nights and it was so relaxing. Did some fishing in the river, had a camp fire, wood was sitting there waiting for us, Richard was very helpful and kind. Highly recommend if you want to get back to nature and enjoy the good peaceful fresh air. Easy to find and great road in, we were in a 16 ft caravan and had no issues at all.
