Tiz Tam Fam Nature Reserve is a privately owned nature refuge (officially called Green Catbird Nature Refuge).  We have a passion for protecting the vulnerable and endangered flora, fauna and fungi on the property.  By allowing campers to use our reserve, we get to share the beauty of the property with others and the income helps us manage lantana, weeds and regenerate the land.  We are regenerating some areas to be a native edible food forest to help educate camp goers as to the traditional uses of Australian native plants.  The property backs on to the D'Aguilar National Park, with a horse/hiking/mountain bike trail up to Kluver's Lookout. Our crystal clear creek runs most of the year (will dry up when no rain for a long period) and great for paddling feet in to cool off.   Somerset dam is a 45 minute drive away for watersports and other fun Children 2 years and younger are free.

Escape and relax
Untouched remote self contained camping. Peaceful and spacious. 20km down a dirt road with multiple creek crossings made for a great feeling of getting away from it all. Highly recommend.

Tranquility amongst the trees
We camped in our camper van under the tree canopy at Hidden Creek site. So quiet and private . Had the property to ourselves most of the time. Meet lovely hosts night before leaving. Half the fun was the drive in .

The Oval
8 of us stayed here last weekend and had such a wonderful time. The kids had a ball exploring the farm with the highlight being a ride on Tony's quad with his puppy. Finding yabbies and catching tadpoles in the amazing running creek was the kids favourite thing to do. There were other campers around, however we didn't see or hear them. Our site (the oval) was very large and easily accommodated 2 camper vans with ample space to run and play. The drive to the farm was beautiful and scenic with plenty of cows to spot! We rate this hipcamp highly and recommend to everyone.

Beautiful and relaxing place
Absolutely beautiful spot, we stayed at The Creek site for 3 nights during the week and had the whole reserve to ourselves. Plenty of room to set up however we wanted, with the creek just below to cool off in. The birdsong in the rainforest was amazing, it was a very relaxing place to spend a couple of days testing out our new camper trailer.

Just me and the dogs...
Camping at Tiz Tam Fam HipCamp location was amazing! Owner came to introduce himself on arrival and make sure I was sorted. Firewood was left at the location ready for use in the designated fire pit. While you knew there was other campers around, you camp spot was distant enough you couldn't see or hear anyone. Creek was only a short distance away and crystal clear water was lovely to go for a stroll in. Bit of a drive to get there from Bris (2hrs) and you certainly need a 4WD to access the place from the main road, but directions from owners were very clear, so no troubles finding it. The dogs and I had a perfect, peaceful overnight stay! Will be heading there again for sure.

Great site, recommended
Great rural property with spacious, flat sites and plenty of distance between individual campsites. A few Trails and creeks on site. The hosts were very accommodating. There is 3-4 small river crossings so recommend 4WD to access the property but SUVs will get out there. Would definitely go back for another stay.

We just spent a weekend at the oval camp site and it absolutely exceeded our expectations! The property is beautiful and Tammy and Tony just went 100% above and beyond to make the weekend extra special for our group and the children! We’ll definitely be back in the new year!

I can't thank the hosts enough for making this weekend's trip so amazing. Camped at 'The Oval' with a women's 4x4 club and really, just couldn't have asked for more. The property is spectacular, and the hosts are amazing going above and beyond anything you could ever expect. Taking care of little details such as having toilets ready and a camp kitchen already setup, coming down to the site to pass on messages, providing spare equipment, entertaining the kids with rides around the property. Just amazing, and again, the property is absolutely beautiful, including the drive in. Even at 'The Oval' there are still little secluded spots so everyone isn't on top of each other. Can't recommend this place enough, you'll love it!

I attended a group camping trip to Tiz Tam Fam which was organised by the property owner Tammy. The directions to the property were so clear, Tammy and Tony lended us a camp kitchen with everything we needed for the weekend and set up toilets for the group, they also gave us a huge pile of fire wood! They ran the hot tub baths especially for us and Tammy even gave one of our stressed mums a beer and a cheese platter to enjoy while she relaxed in the hot tub. All weekend they would take our big group of kids for rides on the quad bike so we could cook dinner, clean up or even just relax. The drive in is so picturesque and the land itself is just beautiful, plenty of butterflies out and about, relaxing bird noises, very pretty little creek to relax in. You can just tell they love their property so much and want to share it with other people to enjoy too. 10/10 camping spot and 20/10 hospitality, definitely recommend!!

Beautiful, peaceful and welcoming!!
We went on a girls 4x4 camping trip and I cannot recommend this spot highly enough! From cute cows on the drive in, beautiful scenery everywhere you look and the most amazing sense of peacefulness, it was just perfect. But it's the owners who make this place! I've never felt more welcomed and after experiencing a few mishaps, they bent over backwards to make sure my little one and I had a great time!

The perfect location for families
Our all girls 4x4 group spent an amazing weekend with Tiz & Tam at their beautiful property. It is a truly beautiful spot with several camp sites suitable for various size groups. Our hosts really made the trip. They were by far the best I have encountered out of all my camping trips over the years. From duct tape to patch holes in an air mattress to taking the kids for a ride while we packed up camp, nothing was too much trouble. The kids LOVED going for rides on the quad with Parker the pup and exploring independently. Thank you for a wonderful weekend! Can't wait to visit again. 🥰 Elle & Indi

Awesome little spot!
Stayed at Hidden Creek camp overnight for a weekend getaway. Quiet little spot with a running creek nearby and friendly owner. Have to cross cattle grids and river crossings to get there so make sure you have a 4WD.

Peaceful camping
It was very peaceful, and loved the considerable array of birdlife. The creek is running nicely and beautiful rainforest. Excited to hear the green cat bird and the wompoo fruit dove as well as a couple of mammals. Certainly need to watch the weather, bit slippery when wet. Interesting drive in.

Solo motocamping! Muddy! but fun!
Loved the location and the hosts were very thoughtful regarding the weather by offering me dry firewood. Pretty muddy in the wet and the road in was absolutely beautiful. A few water crossings and lots of cows! A little challenging on a big adventure bike with camping gear, but lots of fun.

The Oval
The best
Exactly what we needed to reset. Remote, quiet and all the animals we all got to see made it the best camp spot we’ve ever had we took 3 kids and a tent. We saw a scorpion (zip your tent), deer, yabbies, cows, hares, koala, owl, fire flies and a goanna who likes sausages (as we eventually found out after he stole the kids socks and a shoe, we did end up finding).

Serene Spot
Came in Super late and we still got a lovely warm greeting. The site is HUGE! And you get it all to yourself. A tiny little climb down and you can dip your feet in the creek. We got to see the fireflies at dusk the second night and that was amazing. Heaps of animal sounds and we could hear little critters outside checking our site out when we were in our swag (so don’t leave any food or rubbish around). Beautiful spot, we will be back.

We had a lovely stay at Tiz Tam, the road is not for the faint hearted. Beautiful views, lots of creeks to cross amd saw a lot of cattle. Would only recommend this site for off road caravans though. Once on the farm, we had a lovely time. Plenty if wood supplied by Tiz Tam, we ordered a toilet too and the couple was really happy for the service provided by having their own toilet. Owner was happy to let one couple use their internet as they were expecting a call from their son, becoming grandparents 💕

A very secluded and quiet location
Great host and great location. The Tiz Tam Fam Nature Reserve is a very secluded and quiet location with private sites and nicely tucked away in the rain forest. The only suggestion I would give is that the creek entrances be made more accessible with steps.

I can’t rate this place highly enough!! A thoroughly beautiful location - running creek, chorus of birds, the smell of the Aussie bush, & being able to have my dog off leash. Will definitely return it’s a great getaway close to Brissie.

Great small, private spot for 1-2 people. Feels like you're in a rainforest. Also next to a creek. Tiz kindly escorted me to the campsite and also provided me with firewood and axe.

Picturesque little spot for camping
What a little slice of heaven! We sadly finished our trip early due to the rain, but we'll be back to try out the walking tracks. The hosts were very accommodating of my last minute site change and were lovely about the whole booking process. Definitely need 4WD to get in, and the drive up from Brisbane was beautiful.

Spacious, private, and dog friendly
Highly recommend Tiz Tam Fam! The creek campsite was beautiful and so private. We camped with our dogs who loved playing in the creek and at the spacious camp site. The owners were so helpful and friendly, even checking on us when we went for a hike to Kluvers lookout. We had an amazing time and will definitely recommend to others and visit again soon!
