Want to have a unique secluded camping experience away from other campers, sick of crowded caravan sites? or just need a tranquil break from the city or a  weekend away from your hectic life?  

Picture yourself now.............. sitting by a blazing campfire watching kangaroos and listening to the Kookaburra's song on sunset & sunrise.    

Then your destination should be our 33-acre hobby farm situated about 80km southeast of Melbourne CBD.   Campers can enjoy several choices of secluded flat grassed tent camping sites or if you have a caravan or trailer there are several cleared spots with wide tracks but have slight inclines so you will need to level and easy turning circles available on this unique peaceful property. 

The rear of the property is bushland with cleared tracks and access to three dams on the property. The walking track is at the rear of the property and you can see this in photos, this is also used by horse and bike riders - vehicles cannot access this road.  

We have all types of wildlife and birds on the farm, deer (not native to the area) will run through the property at night, you can see the deer tracks off the waterway walking track.  

You can bring your dog as long as you keep it on a lead.  The Bunyip State Forest is nearby with hours of horse & bike riding, or walking depending on what you like to do for fun.  Eagle Pass Ranch (Roy Marchinton Training Stables) is nearby and if you book they can take you on the riding pathways.

We are nearby to Gembrook for the Kurth Kilm  Bush Walking tracks - there are also scenic walks around the Tynong area. Visit Puffing Billy and take a bike ride along the Cockatoo bike path. Gumbaya world for family fun especially in summer is about 10 minutes away.

So come and enjoy the country life, boil your billy, toast marshmallows or visit the Nar Nar Goon Hotel for lunch or dinner - we have so many options for you - it's the best of both worlds here at the lovely Kookaburra Estate Hobby Farm. 

Adults and children over 12 must be double vaccinated.

We had a relaxing stay at the beautiful Kookaburra estate farm. Talk about an amazingly beautiful, well maintained peaceful property.
Kids enjoyed riding their bikes around, we went for walks and enjoyed the trails. Easy access to firewood, close to shops and easy access to campsite. Fire pit already dug out and felt safe being in a private property.
Beautiful well looked after and behaved horses on the property loving life.
Owners were always helpful and respond to messages almost instantly.
Grateful these guys share their beautiful piece of land for families like us to enjoy.

We spent three lovely quiet nights over Easter at the well maintained and tidy Kookaburra Estate Hobby Farm in our caravan. Easy access to bush like camping sites, some sites are also suitable to caravans. Plenty of firewood around to burn in well contained fire pits. Leanne was a great host and checked in occasionally to ensure everything was going okay.

Fantastic property and wonderful host in Leanne. She was very happy to answer all my questions about our dogs and the site as this was our first time using Hipcamp and couldnt be happier. There were other campsites being used but couldnt see them at all so it felt very secluded. Leanne was lovely enough to give us a site next to a lovely dam for our 2 dogs to go nuts. 10/10 would recoomend and will be going back.

Fantastic spacious sites, lovely surrounds, and great friendly host. We loved the walk around the property, sitting by the campfire in amongst the trees, and patting the animals. A great campsite close to Melbourne. We recommend.

Loved it!!!! The camping spots are hidden away from other campers, and such a nice and relaxing place to be.
We stayed at the rocks site which is grassy and pretty level spot with a deep fire pit.
Its got plenty of trees for privacy,
and open spaces too for kids to run.
Its easy to acces, and easy enough to set up camp and do day trips or just relax and listen to all the birds
Leanne was a super lovely host.
We recommend this place and will stay here again in the future.

This was our second time back to Kookaburra Estate. It’s always peaceful and secluded. Really enjoyed having a fire and just some space to relax and be present in nature.
