Aloomba Lavender Farm

65 sites · RVs, Tents24 acres · NSW
Welcome to Aloomba Lavender Farm. We offer bush camping with powered and unpowered sites. This means you will not be placed very close to other vans unless you are friends and choose to be together. In many cases you will be able to choose where you wish to park. Not all sites are level, but you are able to site your camp/ van as you wish. There are no cement pads. There is access to toilets and hot showers. You may have to walk some distance to the amenities but the solitude, the quiet, safety and stars make all worthwhile. There is a dedicated firepit and firewood is supplied. We can supply no water other than sufficient to cook dinner. You are welcome to use some of the vegetables and herbs but not to strip the vegetable garden! If in doubt - ask. We have great coffee and Devonshire teas but we are not a cafe. However there is a great little lavender shop where you can buy our own lavender essential oil, or a cake of soap or a Baggallini Handbag. We are dog friendly! We welcome well behaved dogs. We are 20 km from Stanthorpe. You may see wildlife or cattle through the fence and an occasional vehicle going down the road. We have a sealed road all the way to our boundary and then drive through the lavender. If you visit in late November through to early December you will enjoy our lavender flowering, but the plants look very pretty all year around in neat rows. We are a commercial farm so there is the need to work to the rhythm of the lavender.

Stonepine Ridge 'where eagles fly'

40 sites · RVs, Tents2000 acres · Willsons Downfall, NSW
Space, scenic views, a series of mountain bike tracks to test your skills, abundant wildlife, peace and quiet. Mountain biking only? Book a campsite for the day. These best describe this 754 hectare (1864 acres) property. Stonepine Ridge is 'remote' - your camp sites are away from any dwellings - but you are still close enough to country towns across borders. Map to get here ( https://stonepineridge.com.au/map/ ) There is plenty of space for social distancing. Most camp sites are 50 or more metres apart. The terrain is mostly treed with some cleared, pastured country. On the border with the Queensland town of Stanthorpe, Stonepine Ridge is close to the historic areas of Willsons Downfall and Amosfield in New South Wales. Home to many rivers that traverse the property from top to bottom, the Boonoo Boonoo and Bookookookarara rivers and Undercliffe and Boonoo Boono Falls are close by and are popular sites to spend a few hours walking/hiking and immersing yourself in the ambient countryside. The Boonoo Boonoo and Bald rock National Parks are also within this area. The beautiful New England town of Tenterfield is about 20 minutes drive from the falls and offers visitors many shopping and restaurant options. Be sure to stop en route to visit the World War 2 tank traps - (Australia's Maginot Line) and Thunderbolt's hideout. A short drive across the border into Queensland will give you access to the Girraween National Park and a host of wineries, coffee shops, restaurants and pubs. At Stonepine Ridge, some areas of the top country are accessible by 2WD when not wet but high suspension and 4wheel drive vehicles are recommended. This camping property is large and you will find no better place that allows for gentle as well as more advanced walking, hiking and mountain biking. The altitude on the property varies from 900m at the top down to 50m to the bottom. The temperature is variable with mostly cool nights, which makes for restful sleep and a nice fire to add to the ambience.

The best camping near Bald Rock National Park guide

Overview

About

Named for the massive dome that looms above its woodlands, Bald Rock National Park near Tenterfield lays claim to the largest granite rock in Australia. Scaling the rock’s summit is the prized activity here, with several walking tracks that traverse around the base and up to the top, where views stretch all the way into neighboring Queensland. The Bald Rock Campground makes a convenient base camp and is within walking distance of the summit tracks and other bushwalks around granite gardens and gum forests.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. Reservations are required and can be booked online at the NSW National Parks website.
  2. Summer holidays and Easter weekend are generally the busiest times, and spots book up quickly. For a quieter visit, aim for spring or fall, or visit on a weekday.

When to go

Bald Rock National Park’s temperate climate makes it suited for camping almost any time of year, though temperatures occasionally dip below freezing in winter. Enjoy banksia, boronia, and other wildflowers dotting the landscape in spring, or take in the clearest views from the top of the dome during autumn’s crisp days. 

Know before you go

  • Roads leading to Bald Rock Campground are paved and suitable for all types of vehicles.
  • A good level of fitness is required to scale the summit, as all tracks include a vigorous uphill climb and some steep sections.
  • Visitors must pay an park entry fee in addition to campsite booking fees.
  • Pack in all the fuel and food you’ll need, and pack out all rubbish. Water may be available but should be boiled or treated before drinking.
  • The park has been affected by wildfires, so some areas may be restricted to allow for regrowth.
