WE PREFER GROUPS Please. We are a grain and sheep farming property situated on the Mortlock River about one and a half hours from Perth. Great for weekend campers or people needing a spur-of-the-moment break. Dogs welcome. We have many different 'sites' for people depending on a) if they have their own toileting requirements, b) number / age of children and adults, and c) size and style of camping. A septic toilet is available - please advice when booking if you need Toilet access. Those who are self-sufficent have more options re remote sites. Each site can have a campfire (in season) but - BYO WOOD please. We do not want people disturbing or taking fallen timber and river debris because of the Eco-environment of this location. This includes the children ripping off branches and dragging timber. Please take all rubbish with you. Pets are OK - please pick up after your dogs - other campers use these sites. Consider a leash around the camping area. Your dogs can run free while you are walking - but be conscious of any nearby stock. We aim to make your camping experience a special time away, just you and the she-oaks, starry nights and occasional wildlife. Please indicate intended arrival time and if you need toilet access.

Absolutely loved every second of camping at the lovely Joe and Cathie’s property. Got a view of the Aurora lights and the stars were amazing all night. I got a bit lost and Joe made the effort to drive out to meet me and guide me into the camp. Both Joe and Cathie came and said hello which was awesome and made me feel 10xs safe especially as a solo female camper. Will definitely be back again and can’t wait until the rain blesses the area come winter to have a camp fire around the river bank. Thank you again guys, one of the best nights camping I’ve ever had. Give Boo a pat for me!

Beautiful getaway
Beautiful patch of serenity and we are so lucky to have Joe and Cathie share with us. Great hosts, made sure we were all comfortable and hadn’t forgotten anything. We had a truly memorable night watching the Aurora Australis and celebrating Mother’s Day doing what we love most - spending time together outdoors. Definitely on our list of places to return to! We loved our stay! Thank you!

We had a great time at the campsite. We were provided with a private, secluded spot near the river. Cathie was very welcoming and helpful, she even provided firewood for us as we changed our mind at the last minute. Unfortunately, there is a go kart track close by and was quite loud and I reckon the same crowd was partying until late which was annoying. Cathie did warn us about it during check in. If not for the go kart track and their partying, it was wonderful. We still had a great time. Thank you Cathie

Lovely spot right on the creek. Others camping also but the hosts thoughtfully spread us out so that it felt like we had the place to ourselves. Mozzies are a bit fierce but we were forewarned and forearmed! A good option for a quick weekender out of the city.
