6500 acre working cattle property in the Southern Downs of Queensland. Beautiful campsites, abundant wildlife, crystal clear diamond night skies, with four distinct seasons. Only 2 hours from Brisbane, and 20 minutes from Warwick. Connolly Dam is about 5 km away and is great for swimming and you can kayak and swim and fish (permit required). Suitable for all types of vehicles, caravans, motorhomes, big rigs... etc. Dog friendly. Horse agistment available. Campers will need their own toilet and remove all rubbish. Contained campfires permitted when restrictions aren't in place, plenty of wood to gather your own (more than enough!) We will happily offer a discount on a confirmed booking for anyone under age 5, but they do need to be booked for insurance purposes. Please ask. We can offer multiple secluded sites. We will not put other campers near your site. Our bush sites are your own until you leave. You can hear the birds, kangaroo thumps, sometime koala growl, and distant cattle but no other people.

A gem you want to keep quiet about
The land is stunning and you can watch the sun rise and set, there are lots of birds, beautiful cows, kangaroos and a number of walking tracks if you want to go on a hike or a stroll. We had our two 11-year-old dogs with us who loved the break but had to sleep for a few days afterwards due to excitement overload. The firepit even had wood chopped up for us to get us started. Nicholas and Liz were fantastic, especially when we got into a spot of bother, they are the kind of people that you want as long-term friends. The property is amazing and apart from the fire pit you would not think anyone else had been there. We didn’t want to tell too many people and keep the place to ourselves!

Fantastic camp
What a absolutely beautiful place the campsites are situated where it is just you no other campers to be seen. You are able to help yourself to any fallen timber. We stayed at the plateau and did a great walk up to the big hill which was a two hour turn around. There are also caves The hosts Nic and Liz where fantastic could not do enough for you Highly recommend

They were incredibly accommodating after some rain as we weren’t able to get to the site that we booked, but has a fantastic one exploring the hills and vast property with no one else in sight.

Loved Fig Tree Hill - so peaceful!
Spring Fed Dam was unavailable following the wet weather so we chose Fig Tree Hill. A beautiful outlook and great camping site. Nic, as usual looked after us well on arrival.

Camping at Spring Fed Dam
What an awesome spot to camp , waking up to the sound of kookaburra's and Galah's , is an amazing spot to camp alongside the dam with the occassional kangaroo hopping by.

Thanks Nick & Liz for sharing your amazing property with us! We had a wonderful 4 relaxing days in what felt like our very own piece of paradise. We felt like we were the only campers on the property due to the distance between campers. Our dogs had a fantastic time being able to run around & swim in a close by dam. It’s wonderful to be able to get away from the bustle and have enough space to relax and unwind. Stunning property! We’ll definitely be back!

What more could you want? Super friendly hosts, secluded location, stunning views! 4wd recommended, we got a camper trailer to the site no problem. Stunning outlook, camels will come say hello, ensure you are prepared for a breeze due to the elevation. Loved this site!

We would like to thank Nick & Liz for their true country hospitality. On our recent stay they treated us like a part of their family. They provided us with a private camp site beside one of their dams. The wildlife was abundant and it was most relaxing waking in the morning to look outside and enjoy having breakfast with the kangaroos. We look forward to returning again. Thank you Nick, Liz and family. Chris and Tracey
