The Grass Tree Bush Camp is conveniently located just 2.5km north of Katoomba town center, so you can easily take advantage of all the upper mountain attractions in this amazing ‘World Heritage’ listed area.

Significant weeknight discount applies to non school holiday weeks. Check out calendar for more details or contact us to discuss options.

The camp site is tranquil and has a large open, flat camping area in a mowed grassy clearing. The secluded clearing is boarded by a Woodland forest with stunning flora like Waratahs, Xanthorrhoea's, Orchids and Banksias. The property is home to many beautiful species of fauna like Gang-gang Cockatoo's, Eastern Rosella's and the cheeky iconic Magpie which will warble a warm welcome. The grassy clearing is frequented by large Kangaroos at dawn and dusk. Just a stones throw from the property you have easy access to world class lookouts and bush walks. If you are into climbing, canyoning, trekking, trail running, cafes, restaurants or walking along breath taking National Park trails, then you will love visiting our area.

This camp is perfect for groups/families not wanting to be camped on top of by other campers, and to have room for the kids to run around, kick a ball or to explore. If you would like to book the whole property please let us know and we can see if we can come to an arrangement. 

Fires are restricted to existing fire pits to minimize scars on the ground. If you prefer to bring your own fire pit we ask that you leave no trace. Fires are only permitted when there are no bans in place. Please be extra vigilant around this as our community is only just recovering after the devastating recent fires. Fires are to be modest and discrete. No fires are permitted on total fire ban days. Only use firewood that you can break by hand or cut with a hand saw from the property. Out of respect for our neighbors and other campers, please do not use a chainsaw at the camp. Note there is no water on the property so you will need to allow enough to ensure you have completely extinguished your fire before you depart. We have firewood available to buy at $12 a create. Please let us know if you would like this additional option. There is lot of small to mid range kindling onsite, however you will either need to organise with us to purchase larger logs or bring your own. 

There is a rustic composting toilet, please supply your own toilet paper. Well behaved pets are welcome and we encourage you to keep your dog on a lead if they are likely to adventure too far from your site & disturb the local wildlife.

This is such a lovely spot, easy to get too. We were able to make a campfire to stay warm, there is a toilet and boy this was the cleanest long drop I have ever seen.
We would have enjoyed it more except for the lousy weather. Will be back!!

Grass Tree Bush camp is a hidden gem. Completely private and surrounded by bush but minutes away from everything the Mountains has to offer. We’d definitely base ourselves there again.

Grass Tree Bush Camp is a gem of a campsite. A fantastic location, it’s a completely private bush escape and a fantastic base from which to enjoy all that the Mountains has to offer.

Loved it! Nice, open sites and very quiet allowing you to disconnect and relax, and only a few minutes drive to the town center. My partner continuously complimented how good the toilet was. Have recommended it to friends and will definitely be back again!
