At Eurasia’s Backyard you will have plenty of space and privacy during you stay along with all sorts of wildlife to watch and enjoy, including cassowaries, echidnas and wallabies.

Located on 10 acres and surrounded by forest the property is just a 12 minute drive from beautiful Mission Beach, there is boat hire available at South Mission, so you can explore even further.

We are a 2 minute drive (or short walk) from the Djiru National Park, which has plenty of beautiful hiking and riding tracks for you to explore. We have bikes available for rent.

Hire a kayak and paddle to and from Dunk Island, go fishing off the jetty at Clump Point or simply relax at your campsite.

Campers will need to be self-contained with their own toilet/shower facilities and take all non-recyclable waste with them on departure. Your host will provide small buckets, where you can place food peelings that will be added to the compost. Card board and other bio-degradable material can also be handed over to your host.

Campfires are welcome after dark but please speak to your host first before starting a fire. Firewood is not supplied, but your host will show you where you can pick branches. 

Cat friendly pets are welcome to join you, if kept on leash. The owner’s dog will be happy to have a play mate and there’s a high-fenced ring they can share together, if your dog is willing to strike a friendship. The host can walk your pet in the morning for a small additional cost (see extras).

Federica was a truly lovely host. We had a really interesting conversation over drinks about her amazing travels. Very friendly and accomodating host! She has a lovely spot, very quiet, but some access issues if there has been rain. However, all was good for us.
Thanks you Frederica, and see you again!

We had a really lovely time at Feddy’s property and enjoyed chatting to Feddy also. It was very peaceful and just a short drive of approx 8-10mins to get into Mission beach. We have a 22ft van and took it slow to get in but managed ok. We picked a spot to park at the property that best suited us. We used levellers to help prop us up so we were nice and even. A van bigger than our van would probably struggle to get into the drive comfortably. Feddy was very accommodating. Thank you Feddy.
