Book our Bell Tent on our wetlands or bring your own tent to camp in a wattle grove (located in our paddock on undulating grassed areas) choosing views of the Grampians or Langi Ghiran. We have 80 acres 77 of which are currently used by the local wildlife and three we are beginning to garden in between renovating. Although the views are spectacular it does get rather dry in late summer/autumn. Our property is situated close to the Grampians National Park and provides a peaceful and secluded base to explore this amazing part of Western Victoria. You will be provided with a small amount of fire wood for a small fire weather permitting. No amenities provided. Please be aware, it can get quite windy at our place from time to time! We are renovating an old farmhouse (please excuse the mess) and taking an abandoned crumbling ruin to a self-sufficient paradise. We would love to have you explore our place and share a story or two about the local area as well as give you tips on the best spots to explore in the Grampians.

Camp site is lovely with some shaded spots with from the trees. Sunrise is absolutely amazing and get a nice view of the mountains out in the field. Plenty of kangaroos to say hello to in the morning also

The Wattle Grove Campsite
We really loved Reubens place, him and his young family met us on arrival and showed us where to park. The spot under the Wattles were private with enough shade, there was also a nice dedicated spot for making a fire for cooking. Unfortunately the rainy weather of the past weekend shortend our stay but we will be back

The host was polite, helpful and accommodating, directions were nice and clear. Fire area was ready to use and a nearby outdoor setting, nice and quiet an had your own privacy. Was nice to see the kangaroos bunnies and emus nearby. Would happily return but for longer

Grampians Views Bell Tent
Lovely stay in nature!
We loved our stay at Reuben’s. The tent is great and the area is quaint with everything you need. The toilet and kitchen area (included pot, pan, bowls, etc.) were very sufficient for our stay. Clear directions were given prior to arrival to find our tent with no issues. We loved sitting at the campfire watching the kangaroos in the field. We would absolutely recommend Reuben’s place to anyone looking for an enjoyable experience in nature!

Grampians Views Bell Tent
Absolutely magical location, so quiet yet so close to Halls Gap and other attractions. The bed was comfy, wood for the fire was welcomed, and communication was quick. Kangaroos and sheep came to say hello (but not too close!). The flushing toilet was luxury! Would absolutely recommend.

We are doing the tent camping in here. It was amazing experience. In this area, we could see the galaxy, sheeps, and wallaby hopping around. But please be aware if you put your trash bag or fabric kitchen cupboard. Because it might become a mess in a following day.
