The place is worth the stay but the host is one in a lifetime. Full of stories and personality. There were about 5 other campers. There is plenty of grass to stay close to them or far away. Recommended 10/10

A brilliant addition to my favourite Hipcamp locations.
Overwhelming hospitality, great surroundings.
Close to Main centres, yet private and peaceful
It is and indication of how welcoming Dodona is that the local birds happily go about their day within touching distance with complete trust.

Dodona was a fortuitous selection of ours but we couldnt have been luckier.

Rick made us feel like family from the outset, offering us access to his own home, his fruits, and his wealth of knowledge. He even brought us toasted chestnuts.

If you only stay at one location on your travels, this should be it.

Richard is an amazing man!
So genuine and kind-such kindness that is rare to find these days.
Mum and I visited from the Gold Coast and Richard welcomed us into his absolutely beautiful home, without hesitation, to save us sleeping in our swags outside on his wet grass.
He not only offers great hospitality, but engaging conversation. Richard is a remarkable and talented man who’s stories are truly inspirational to those who listen.
$9 a night almost seems laughable.
Do not visit the area without meeting/staying with him. You will not regret it
