Nestled amongst the mountains just outside of the township of Whittlesea our 40-acre property sits above the clouds. This experience comes with sweeping views, a hidden waterfall, a clear campground, and plenty of wildlife. The camping area is accessible by 4WD only, otherwise, strap on a backpack and earn it! (800m walk/hike from where a non-4WD can park). The waterfall is reached by a single trail track from the campsite, and you do need to be an experienced hiker to get to the waterfall. Which is part of the appeal! We welcome self-contained campers, who bring their own toilet and take all waste with them. We have a strict Leave No Trace policy. Or choose to stay in our beautiful A-frame cabin, with plush bedding, cozy fire, and outdoor lounge. More than anything else this is a place to relax and be away from normal, live outside yourself, and rediscover what weekends are for.  Dogs are welcome, so long as they don't bother the wildlife. Campfires are allowed, BYO firewood or campers can collect fallen timber from the property.

Breathtaking view from the camp site. So close to town yet so isolated. Few areas around the site could improve with bit of tidy up, and toilet and water access wasn’t the most convenient but all forgivable with the views. Had a wonderful camping trip with the whole place to ourselves. Would love to come back.

Great View, but poorly maintained
Well honestly speaking, I loved the view of this place and its a nice place to camp. But, but as I reached the campsite I was absolutely disappointed with its maintenance and upkeep. Honestly, it's absolutely overrated and over priced than what it is in reality. Paying $60 per person per night is absolutely not worth visiting this place, I don't recommend people. I would rather visit multiple times to one of the most beautiful campsites I have been to lately which is at "Frank Farm", which offers so much for fellow campers at such an affordable price with just $55 dollars per night for 2 guests. I have been to more than 10-15 campsites from hipcamp, and I never experienced so badly maintained properly ever before, when it has so much potential to offer to campers. The entrance is very confusing as there's no clear instructions or notice board for visitors about the property. Further, the toilet was not even a toilet, just a portable toilet on a shed without a door, and wide open. Furthermore, this property has a Glamping site which is priced at $431 per night for 2 guests. Well, in terms of its maintenance, and facilities it is absolutely worthless to visit and spend money on. I highly recommend fellow campers not to spend so much money even by mistake. You might get intrigued by its views but please don't. I have always reviewed places with positive words, but I am sorry Patrick, your property doesn't meet expectations and doesn't match with its overrated price.

Exceptional
Amazing location up at Magic Mountain - I had the whole camp area to myself on my overnight stopover. Plenty of firewood around, beautiful views and a peaceful place to stay. Highly recommend!

While the overall experience was pleasant, I was disappointed by the lack of essential amenities and maintenance. For instance, despite the website and email stating there would be water available, none was provided. In addition to this, the portable toilet was inaccessible due to being full of waste, and the bath contained rainwater and mud with no fresh water available. The cabin's door was left partially open, allowing leaves, spiders, and other insects to enter, some of which were found in the dirty bed sheets. We left first thing this morning and to be honest I was really disappointed to have paid hundreds of dollars for a poor experience. I offer this feedback constructively, hoping that future guests will have a more accurately advertised and well-maintained experience. While I understand the rustic nature of camping, it's important that advertised amenities are provided to ensure fairness for paying customers. Lastly, I just want to point out that I have read some of the reviews and they too aren’t positive and have stated a very similar experience which is even more disappointing. Thank you for your attention and I hope you consider my suggestions. Kind regards, Lara

Patrick was a great and communicative host. Fun drive to get up to the site (strongly recommend a 4x4 with some decent clearance). Excellent views and convenient amenities. Highly recommend this spot.

Awesome private camp site. As mentioned in the description, it’s really only access by 4 wheel drive. Views were great, enough space for large groups.
