Beautiful location, one not to miss!

The host was super helpful with directions, follow them and you won’t get lost - look out for the sign and the white plate marking the entrance to the track (see photo)
Expect branches to scratch the car, etc and once you get to the gum tree on the high / low bit, after the second gate, stick to the left is the correct route to the top.

The mountain shack is on top of the mountain with stunning views all around. You feel like you are far away from civilisation, yet only 30min from Wauchope. It's a fair off road uphill drive in your 4wd to get there and well worth it. There are plenty of curious cows around to keep you entertained, whilst watching the sun rise and set through distant eucalyptus mist. Dangling the legs over the deck with a cold beverage in hand enjoying this beautiful landscape was bliss. The shack is a great basic shelter with a couch, table, chairs, and one mattress. Bring your own camping extras you need. Rainwater tank had fresh drinking water.

Amazing place to camp if you wanna get away from everything and still indoors! view is amazing, unfortunately the weather didn’t help us much but i’d definitely come back. proper 4wd is a must to go up the mountain.

This was a unreal experience . John provided us with a map which led us direct to the track up-to the mountain . The drive up to the top definitely needs a 4wd . The shack had everything you needed . We stayed in a swag outside but you can sleep inside on sofa bed . The fresh water shower was amazing and cold and was perfect before enjoying my cup of coffee on the outside area . The cows came and said hi and was very comical . We had an amazing time and waking up in the clouds . I would recommend this 10373738 percent !
John was a true gent and a great host !
Thanks

Big thanks to John for opening his amazing property to the public. This is one of those places you don’t want anyone else to find out about! The photos don’t do the views justice. Sunrise above the fog, and the most amazing stars at night. The fireplace was a godsend and it was great to take our doggo along for the trip. If you’re after a weekend in a spot away from everything, this is the spot for you.

A note worth making is that you’ll need a car that can handle the dirt roads and a 4wd track to the camp.

Will 100% be back, thanks for an unreal long weekend.
