Watton Airstrip is a stunning property, nestled on the banks of the Macquarie River. Featuring nine riverside campsites, along with paddock and bush sites, all 4WD accessible and two equally stunning 2WD accessible sites. You’ll share our spaces with kangaroos, wallabies, emus, echidnas, deer, platypus and more. Enjoy some optional extras, including Tammie's home made bread, farm fresh, free range eggs, or one of our range of grazing platters, home made jams or hot chocolate kits. Or pamper yourself with a Crystal reiki session, or tarot reading. The 2WD accessible sites feature spectacular views to the right, towards Mt Panorama and Mt Horrible and towards Mt Canobolas to the left. Lie back in your swag at night and let the star struck, velvety sky envelope you, or make a booking at the nearby Bathurst Observatory to see the stars up close. Each campsite offers its own unique features for you to enjoy and a hand crafted pit toilet is accessible to those camped along the river bank. Fish or swim in the river, ride your bikes, or set up camp and then head off on an adventure to the Goldfields at Ophir, or History Hill at Hill End via the Bridle Track. Better still, book into a pub crawl with Damo so you can lie back and enjoy the ride. There are plenty of opportunities for 4WDing and bushwalking in the local area. Fires are allowed (fire restrictions permitting). Wood can be collected from fallen wood around the property, or bring your own if you prefer. Pets are welcome for a one off fee per animal.

White Gum

1 site · RV10 acres · Orange, NSW
Orange is about 3.5hrs from Sydney. There's lots to see and do around the region. Visit local wineries and cellar doors, head out for some fine dining, enjoy glorious parks and gardens, step back in time with charming heritage villages. With a high altitude and rich volcanic soil from nearby Mount Canobolas, the Orange wine region enjoys perfect conditions to produce cool climate wines. Local boutique wineries make a variety of wines, including award winning shiraz and cabernet sauvignon. Our restaurants offer seasonal menus or you can time your visit with Orange F.O.O.D Week in April or Orange Wine Month in October. Learn about the history and heritage of the region by exploring the Orange Heritage Trail. A camera is a must if you're visiting Carcoar and Millthorpe. Blind Freddy's Bushranger Tours take you to the actual locations in Central West New South Wales where the likes of Ben Hall, Frank Gardiner and Johnny Gilbert roamed during the gold rush era of the 1860s. The site is on the bottom half of 10 acres about 15-20 minutes from town. It has a beautiful outlook and the plot itself overlooks our little spring-fed pond. This is a quiet rural area and there is only one caravan site so privacy is a benefit. The site has access to rainwater, electricity and rubbish facilities. No toilet amenities available however we do have a dump point (you must be self-contained with your own camping toilet and shower). Orange is a beautiful area and is classed as cool climate so we do have mild summers and at least a smattering of snow in Winter most years. (You would need to ensure your caravan has some source of heating.) There is bush land behind the property that can be explored, and several local walking tracks and waterfalls. If you love watching the beauty of all four distinct seasons and dislike the heat, this area may suit you perfectly. No pets or campfires please.

Escape the busy city life and come light a campfire and watch the sunrise and sunset and enjoy the amazing views and wildlife and keep an eye out for koalas in the trees.
