Private and not far from city
We spent quite and relaxed Christmas at the Shiprock farm. Rob was kind enough let us wait for the RSA to fix my flat tyre at his nice place.
Only issue we found is ‘electricity supply’. We were told there is an electricity socket we can use but it didn’t work. So we had to keep our cars running to generate electricity. Also the lights and water supply in the kitchen generated by rather smaller size solar panels and those stopped around 10pm to 9am next morning. Considering we stayed there very hot and sunny days, recommend bring your own generator in the winter time.

We had a great weekend, very well setup with bush kitchen, shower and toilet. Rob was really easy to coordinate with and overall would highly recommend. Such a beautiful spot!

Wonderfully open space & kind hosts
Wonderful open space and the host’s were remarkably kind and attentive to our needs. Had more privacy than anticipated and it was everything we could’ve hope for and more. Rob even gave us a tour of the farm on our last day and his lovely wife shared some great insights into permaculture and their journey. Will definitely be back!

10/10. Beautiful location, excellent amenities, helpful host and great surroundings. Would definitely stay again. Shiprock falls just a 10min walk away and plenty of privacy from anyone staying nearby. Only recommendation is to bring gazebo or the like for shade in the summer as it is an open site.

Private camping for large groups
We camped at Shiprock Farm over the grand final weekend and it was spectacular! The camp site itself is private, secluded and extremely well kept. The compost toilet and shower were an amazing luxury, and the shelter was perfect for huddling around the campfire. I highly recommend this spot for groups of friends, families and anyone looking for a great time. Rob and Jesse were also incredibly helpful and responsive.

We really enjoyed our stay at Shiprock Farm. Kylie and Rob are lovely hosts who are going to quite some effort to make their property as comfortable as possible for their guests. Since we first visited, they've installed a shelter, a fireplace, a composting toilet and a water tank.
The site is a large, undulating, cleared area of approx 200m x 50m, surrounded by bush on all sides.

A pretty spot surrounded by forest. Was a lovely relaxing stay and enjoyed checking out the nearby waterfall a very short drive away. Rob is helpful and doing a great job adding useful amenities.
