Good view looking across the valley. Able to have a fire. Site is quite tight to get into and not a lot of level space with a small caravan

Absolutely stunning views across the valley and of the night sky. Ample sized flat area to camp that is perfect in its simplicity.
We woke to the sounds of Koalas in the distance and kangaroos visited at dawn and dusk. Walking trails for the energertic (or those keen for blackberries) around the rim of the large property readily accessible from base camp. Chestnut Grove, yup lotsa chestnuts a.k.a spiky ouchy balls !!
We will definately be back !!!

Leigh is a great host and very accommodating. I made a last minute booking to camp with my sons so he called me almost immediately with directions to the camp. The property is beautiful and we had such a great time. Thanks for your hospitality Leigh. Highly recommended!

I had no idea how chestnuts grew! Stunning views, and great stargazing.
Warning to other small-car campers, the drive up to the landing is very steep! My little Fiesta couldn't handle the last 30m of climb up to the camp site. There is a smaller landing by the rainwater tanks if your car isn't quite up to the challenge.

Absolutely loved our stay here! Such a special place.
Close enough that you can easily travel into the city but far enough out that you can relax and enjoy the quiet.
Highly recommend!
