Will be back for sure
A lovely, peaceful spot with spectacular views. Matt showed us in and gave us a quick guide to the property, before leaving us to ourselves for the weekend. Phone reception was available.

Simply Amazing
Matt was super helpful from the moment we arrived on site, showed us to our camp spot in which there was a sizable amount of wood available for the camp fire (purchased through Matt). Definitely need a 4x4 for some parts after all the rain we had lately. The lower camp spot was quite wet so Matt was more than happy to place us in the high camp spot which was a bit dryer. Plenty of wildlife incl kangaroos, wallabies, Eagles, wild goats etc. Its on our list to go back to in the summer months.

A beautiful and peaceful spot, with a great view of the stars. Great walk down to the creek and if it was warmer we would have had a swim.

Matt is a great host, fantastically helpful and quick to respond the few times we had questions in the lead up to our camp. The site is beautiful, with just enough creature comforts (e.g. the fire pit, table and drop toilet) whilst still feeling totally remote. I'd highly recommend this campsite with my only caveat being ... be prepared for some pretty wild wind!

The camp spot on the ridge had awesome views. Matt was a good host and meeting was easy. He provided firewood too. Be aware of windy days as the ridge is a little exposed. We had a great time.

Our best Hipcamp yet!
Mother nature had other plans for us so we were unable to access The Furthest reaches and stayed elsewhere on the property. There had been a lot of rain and the road was too treacherous to take a vehicle down. It is an absolutely stunning piece of land. No matter where you stay there is plenty to see and long walks to be had. The views from up the top are amazing with plenty of classic Blue Mountain sandstone cliff vistas. My boys (9 and 7) and I walked down to The Furthest Reaches and it is also fantastic with the best rope swing. There are quite a few kangaroos, frogs, turtles and a beautiful stream. The surrounding bush is free from weeds and is classic Australian eucalypt forest. The fantastic, generous and personable host Matt and his crew are not just sitting back and renting out the paddocks. They are putting in a lot of work regenerating the bush and keeping the place very picturesque with neat camping areas and large fire pits. He delivered us a very generous amount of firewood when we arrived. I've done a fair few Hipcamps and this was the best one yet. We were looked after but left alone. Even if all the campsites were full, the place is so huge that you'd never bump into someone else unless you went for a walk. When I needed something, Matt was available and helped me out big time. I can not say enough good things about this place. We will definitely be back. If you like real Australian bush camping this place ticks all boxes.

Views for days
Amazing spot with a lovely camp fire and large wooden table available. Definitely require a 4WD to get in and HAVE YOUR CAMERA READY the views are amazing!! Matt was awesome to deal with and even helped get some of our guests in. Definitely would check for wind forecast as it was pretty crazy with the winds but apart from that definitely will be returning !! FYI put toilet was available, very clean !! Can not rave on enough…

Will not disappoint
Matt was a wonderful host who met us to direct us to the property even though we had arrived late from Sydney. Waking up the next morning to discover the view was awesome. Space, trees, no buildings was exactly what we were after and the property delivered! We look forward to visiting again.

Favourite spot
Matt was an incredible host, the furthest reaches would be one of my favourite camp spots, highly recommend. The spot was down a great 4wd track and in a nice isolated and quiet spot. 10/10 we will definitely be back.

Amazing views and great campfire!
We loved our stay at Aurora View. Despite some inclement weather we had a wonderful 4-days. The views are spectacular and the generous pile of firewood Matt left for us meant we had fantastic campfires each night. There were some other campers on one of the other sites but it’s so private and reasonable distance away, we didn’t see or hear them all weekend. This was our second stay and we will definitely be back. Only two hours drive from Sydney, it’s perfect for a weekend, or a longer stay. Our Prado towed our Jayco Dove camper trailer in with no trouble and our friends tent camped, driving in with their Subaru Forrester without any trouble. Thanks Matt for another fantastic stay!

Another great stay at Aurora View! Although the weather wasn’t the best this time we still had a great time and the kids loved being able to explore while staying within easy sight of the adults. We paid extra for firewood of which there was more than enough - it’s well worth the small extra charge. The track in was also in good shape and was no problem for my SUV. This campsite is beautiful and the big wooden table is so handy too! Matt is also an excellent host and kindly made two trips to escort us to the site when one vehicle was delayed.

We booked the Aurora campsite but ended up staying at Fartherest reaches due to a cancellation. This was very lucky as it is a lovely big , isolated site next to a pretty stream. There were a few flat areas to choose from whereas at Aurora it would have been more difficult to get our camper trailer flat and Aurora was more affected by run off.

A magical place so close to Sydney.
The furthest reaches he’s a magical place. Matt is an excellent host and was able to show us to our camping spot and provide information about the area. This is the perfect place to get away from it all and under two hours from Sydney. Peace and quiet, wildlife and a gentle flowing stream; the Furthest Reaches has it all. Sitting around the fire pit at night and talking with wonderful fellow campers who we met on the weekend made this a great weekend. We will definitely be going back to the Furthest Reaches.

Tranquil hideaway in the bush
The furthest Reaches is a stunning campsite. It really does feel like the furthest reaches in beautiful bushland far from any road, traffic, or civilisation. There's a lovely fresh creek to take a dip in and abundant wildlife. Matt is a helpful and friendly host. We would definitely camp here again.

Great private camp
In no order of fun: seeing the kangaroos every time we drove in and out, the 4WD drive in and out (use low range to save the brakes), quietness, flowing creek to splash around in, night possum and owl visits, things to do not too far away, closeness to Sydney. And the swing... Fantastic Hipcamp
