Welcome to Bunya Ridge Droughtmasters, a working cattle property in the Noosa hinterland, located 8mins from the town of Cooroy and only 25mins into Noosa. Dedicated to maintaining biodiversity and the conservation of the native bushland and remnant rainforest gullies located on the property, portions have been set aside and committed as 'land for wildlife'. The secluded campsites with fire pits are on flat, grassy and shaded areas with easy walking access into the surrounding bush land to explore the diverse range of native flora and fauna, make sure you bring your camera and binoculars. Please note, a 4x4 vehicle is required to access our campsites safely. If relaxing around camp and having a swim or paddle around the dam is more your thing, bring the kayak and fishing rod, as one of our dams is well stocked with Australian Bass and Silver Perch. There's always a chance to spot a platypus for the quiet and patient camper too. Feel free to wander the property and take in some of the views from different vantage points around the farm. There's a good chance you'll come across our beautiful stud quality droughtmaster cattle at some stage during your stay and although they are generally very quiet and friendly, they are BIG, and safety is a priority, so if you'd like to get up close and meet the herd, get in touch with your host for a hands on experience with the cattle in a safe environment. Some other activities you may be interested in during your stay; Guided tour of the property including cattle experience and some tips on finding wildlife/birdlife. Cheese/grazing platter, made with select local produce. (Goes great with a wine or beer at sunset)Fishing lessons, tips on how and where to catch your first bass. Pony rides, kids up to approx 50kg can ride Jed the Welsh X pony. All rides will be on the lead rope.

Absolutely gorgeous property!!!
Absolutely gorgeous property! Dave and his family were very accommodating and welcoming to us. Our late arrival was no problems and Dave had even got a fire going ready for when we arrived.
Dave was happy to spend time showing us around his property and introducing us to his beautiful and very well looked after cattle.
We were able to use their kayak for a paddle around one of the dams and were also able to walk and explore their property. One minute you felt you were on a farm and the next in a tropical rainforest. A very relaxing environment perfect for getting away from the busy city life without having to travel too far.
Can't thank Dave and his family enough for not only sharing their peace of paradise with us but also spending time talking with us and being very accommodating and lovely during our stay.
Best campsite ever
Absolutely loved the area, so spacious and so peaceful. Dave was great so organised had wood ready to go for us so friendly, would recommend his property to anyone!!
Just as described
Very quiet campsite with plenty of shade and a great dam for swimming. Daves description was spot on which helps avoid disappointment when it’s been oversold. Will definitely head back for another few days of relaxing
Ten stars out of five!
We have to give more than five star, Bunya Ridge Nature Camp is an absolute top tier camping experience.
Completely private and the most beautiful nature surrounds, I won't begin because I won't end on the joy the cows brought us- they visited for pats!!! Best swimming in the back creek and the underground fed spring water dam.
Dave is an absolute ripper of a host- truly the best. He maintains the campground, delivers wood and fresh vegetables and eggs and yet you never seem to see him at all! Complete privacy!!... and has the cutest animals big and small.
You'll love it. Close to EVERYTHING Sunshine Coast has to offer.
Ten stars outta five - Dave you're a champion we'll be back one day.
