Stooge Farm is located on the banks of the beautiful Tuluminakali (Mersey) River, 50 mins from Launceston airport, and 40 minutes from the Devonport Ferry Terminal. Stooge Farm is a secluded hideaway from the rest of the world, located at the at the end of a country lane, in a protected valley surrounded by state forest. 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 Tulumpanga (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, barbequeeing, bushwalking, birdwatching in the lost world of Stooge Farm Tasmania 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 at all time. - 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. - This is a quiet peaceful place, and to respect the wildlife and other campers we have a strictly no generators, amplified music or unnecessary noise. We will have to ask you to remove your dog if it barks. - Please exercise extreme caution with fires as we are in a high risk area. Keep your fire small and in the fireplaces provided; put your fire out if there is no one attendance. No fires during windy conditions or days or fire ban. It is your responsibility to monitor and assess local conditions and fire regulations.

The place is perfect, very secluded and pure nature sounds. The stars are beautiful at night and the moon is stunning. Beautiful foggy chill sunrises. And… We’ve got to see a platypus swimming and that’s the most adorable thing!

Riverside camping at its best.
Very pretty part of the State next to the Mersey River. Easy to find with nice bush sites. Would visit again :)

Eel Hole View
The flat grassed site was great for tent camping. The location was beautiful. The sites are spaced out well to provide good privacy from each other. Our dog loved swimming in the river.

We stayed at Shingle Beach, great spot, but not the best for a tent but we made it work. River is gorgeous, site is private, would stay again.

Camping on the river!
Just what we needed, our own lil patch of privacy! Fishing wasn’t kind to us this trip, Dusty track on way in so go nice and slow Richard guided us to our spot once we arrived, we took a 17 ft van, track winds through a bush setting, I thought getting out might be tight but didn’t pose an issue at all! Lovely lil spot, we will be back

Excellent weekend stay at Eel Hole View - pulled up along side the river on the drive through site, after a little level up work and rolling the mat out across the recently cleared ground we were set, awning out, fire lit and beer in hand - Spent most of the second day down by and in the river. A Sea Eagle greeted us perched across the river on pack up morning and there are always plenty of fish jumping in the river. The amount of insect life, birds and wallabies is amazing (including healthy looking huntsman spiders) - highly recommend for a weekend break. There is no phone service which makes it even better to switch off and enjoy the surroundings.
