Morisset just 10kms away and 7 kms from the M1 motorway.

There is plenty to do in the Morisset area including visiting the pretty Gap Creek Falls in the Watagans National Park or kayaking around beautiful Lake Macquarie, Australia’s largest coastal saltwater lake.

Set on the western foreshore of Lake Macquarie, which has the bush in its backyard. Find a patch of shade for a picnic in Lake Macquarie State Conservation Area where you can spot kangaroos and other wildlife. The saltwater lake is a haven for sea turtles and dolphins and you might see sea eagles and kookaburras, too.

Just 1.5 hours drive from Sydney!

Awesome spot at fern gully! Perfect for us camping in cars in the back fully. So close to the beaches from this lush little bush land. Les is a super friendly and his big dog is the best!

We shared an amazing weekend with a groups of friends, at Fern Gully, and it was simply fabulous.
Les is warm and welcoming, as is Boris the dog.
The billabong is so pretty to sit in front of and disconnect.
Thanks for having us, Les.
We will definitely be back

Les is a great host. His camp site was peaceful and pretty. We were serenaded by birds and frogs and visited by wallaby.
