Want to have a tranquil weekend away from the city or just need a weekday break away from your hectic life or the TV?   Picture yourself sitting by your 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 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, try your hand at a spot of fishing or yabby catching. 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, or perhaps you would like to bring your horse and camp in the paddock with your horse or horses this is available on request.  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.

The Hipcamp host Leanne is a lovely lady and very accommodating including providing the first night of wood for the fire. The property is amazing and you wouldn't think you were so close to suburbia. Nice way to spend a few relaxing day amongst the wildlife and nature. Recommend.

What a great site, and so close to Melbourne CBD. You would think however that you’re in the middle of nowhere. Our daughter loved the horses and the kangaroos. Leanne and her husband were super helpful the whole stay, there was nothing that was too much trouble.
Heaps of free firewood as well. We Will be coming back for sure!

Great spot. Very quiet and picturesque. Lots of wildlife and walks to be had. Hosts are very accessible if you need them but leave you to it too. Not too far from towns and the foothills.

We had such a great stay on this beautiful property. The kids had an absolute ball exploring, making damper and cubby houses. The hosts were very helpful without being intrusive. Thank you so much Leanne and family for allowing us to stay.

We had a lovely stay, a beautiful spot to camp if you are looking around the city for a one or 2-day camping It took us only 1 hour from the city, and Leanne (the host) was very friendly and accommodating. Leanne gave us a tour of the property when we arrived and let us find the perfect spot and gave us plenty of firewood for free. Would recommend!
