Bring the family and friends for a secluded and private wilderness experience surrounded by 60 acres of forest. This totally separate wilderness camping paddock sits within our organic permaculture farm property where we grow fruits, veggies, nuts and flowers.  Set up camp in the shade on a gently sloping 2 acre paddock all to yourself - that's right - we are offering only one site listing (for you and up to 29 guests) situated about 1 km from the main farm house and completely surrounded by forest.  A genuine wilderness experience with forest (tree) bathing, spring fed creeks and total peace for you and your group very close to Melbourne. You can hopefully spot our resident platypus and kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, wombats etc. There’s also abundant bird life including lyre birds and eagles. Explore all the Yarra Ranges has to offer including a short walk to Shiprock Falls. Grab a coffee or pizza in nearby Gembrook and checkout some farm produce from your hosts before you leave. We have added a composting toilet, a drinking water tank and a bush pole shelter with cold water kitchen sink, phone charger ports, lights and hot water to a private shower and a picnic table with seats under cover.  We have an adjacent fire pit area with tree log seating.  You can order firewood from us too and a Coleman gas cooker with gas bottle (see extras). Most of the materials are repurposed from another property or scavenged from our forest. We hope to see you soon.Bring the family and friends for a secluded and private wilderness experience surrounded by 60 acres of forest.

Rob was very welcoming when we meet him. He showed us around the property when we got there. It is a very lovely and open space get for all types of campers. The amenities on the property work great, and are easy to use but also out of the way enough to enjoy the space as a basic camp ground. Rob makes sure you undstand everything and makes sure you know that you can always get a hold of him for anything. The camp space is also close to a couple town centres being only 15 to 20 minutes away. He has information at the camp site and details of other places and activities that are close to the site. We will be coming back again soon. Adam

Shiprock was perfect for our big group of 11 kids and 9 adults! The kids could run around and have the best time ever while the adults relaxed. Plenty of space for everyone, lots of things to see and do and excellent facilities. A+ swimming spot at Doon Reserve, 15 minutes away!
