Exclusive campsite to only one group at a time!

Escape the hustle bustle of life on our 10 acres alpaca life style farm which is nestled between beautiful hills and grazing properties on Walteela Road in Mannus (20 min drive to Tumbarumba). Walteela means "Place of Peace" and that is what you might be looking for. No traffic waking you. Listen to the sounds of nature instead...

Enjoy the peacefulness, local wildlife (kookaburras, echidnas, wombats, kangaroos, etc.), small picturesque creek, stunning mountain views and dark skies for star gazing. Birdwatchers... check out the big list of birds in the photo section that one of our very kind hipcampers from Birding Australia took for us. 

We only take one group at a time, however there are several camp sites to choose from. Next to the bubbling creek and a beautiful big old apple box tree or on a very easy access site surrounded by trees and shrubs near cubby and big trampoline. Both sites have a primitive loo with a view in short walking distance.

It is easy enough to pull a caravan through either of the sites. You can check for yourself which site you prefer to set up.

Love fishing? Perfect! Enjoy a chat or fishing tour with Craig, who has been a professional line fisherman for 18 years! He loves to explore, show off the local fishing spots and a chat about all things fishing! Mannus Creek is only a couple of min drive away and Mannus Lake 15-20 min drive.

Hand feed our friendly alpacas, greet our pet chickens, find some eggs, and pet our 2 cats Honey and Starlight. Plenty of room for kids to run around, ride their bikes, jump on the 12ft trampoline or play in the big cubby.

Pick your own fresh herbs from our garden if you like to add this little extra special flavour to your cooking or herbal tea. 

Campfires are a regular on our property. Heard of "Swedish Torch" yet? An amazingly easy way of having a campfire, that burns for hours. Cook on it or just enjoy the beautiful mess free burning log. Interested? Talk to us about it and book ahead. Wheelbarrow loads firewood available for purchase, see Extras when booking. 

Make sure you've also got some warmer clothes with you since you never know in the mountains ;-).

Children under 5 years and under stay free of charge. Please mention them in your booking or message us to let us know. Is your group size bigger than our max. amount? Get in touch with us and we will see what we can work out. Thank you.

Our family of 4 loves to welcome you to our simply natural home at Creal's Rest. Hope to meet you soon 😊. 

To stay tuned follow us @crealsrest on Instagram and Facebook.

Everything in Creal's Rest was amazing! As soon as we arrived, Tatjana greeted us with a bottle of alkaline water and gave us tips about the area. Tatjana was also very accommodating with all our requests and comes to check on us from time to time to make sure we are enjoying. The natural pool was a hit to the kids and was perfect to cool us down during the day. Drop toilet was super clean and we were lucky enough to have some water flowing from the creek. The Alpacas were the star of their place! Everything was perfect and we will definitely be back. Thank you Tatjana, Craig and kids!

Beautiful property with serene scenery and with a view of the snow capped Mt. Kosciuszko. Tatjana and family were very warm and friendly. We were greeted with a bottle of alkaline water, brochures on things to do nearby and their kids, Loris & Loreena's adorable drawings! (Definitely going into my travel scrapbook!)
They were also constantly checking on us to ensure we were warm as it was winter. Beautiful running creek right next to the campsite which we really loved.

We went on the fishing trip with Craig where we hopped on his 4wd and he shared with us his life experience as a professional fisherman. We will definitely be back again for a longer trip to explore the surrounding attractions !!

Thank you for your warmth & hospitality during our visit!

Creals Rest is highly recommended by us. We have just enjoyed a 4 night stay on the creek, 4 couples in 4 caravans over Easter.
The property is beautiful. Tatjana, Craig and their 2 children were so friendly and helpful. Tatjana was happy to answer my many questions when booking.
On arrival we were greeted by Tatjana who gave us options of where to set up our camp, a bottle of lovely alkaline water and some brochures on the local attractions. A fire bucket ( half 44 gallon drum) was provided at the site for our campfire.
The alpacas were friendly and so cute. Lots of bird life around too.
Thankyou so much for having us, we’ll be back next time we’re down in this beautiful part of Australia 😁

Response from Tatjana, the Host, on April 9th, 2021

Dear Rhonda, it was such a pleasure to have you all staying at our property. We are very grateful that you contacted us and we were able to make it work for your caravans. Now we know that there is enough space ;-). Very much looking forward to see you again.

Tatjana and Craig were delightful with a bottle of alkalin water on arrival. We had a lovely stay, beautiful scenery. We drove to Threadbo to climb Mt Kosciuszko, and another day to visit Yerongabilly Caves.
Highly recommend checking out Tatjana’s natural products
