It was really nice staying at gum ridge. I wish I stayed more than one night so I could explore the area and enjoy the view.
Phone reception can be a bit how ya going on the drive there so make sure you have all the directions. But once you are there, it’s better (I use telstra)
Peter was nice, coming out as you arrive to give you a run down of the place.

Awesome views. Great host. Would definitely go back. Lots of wildlife and close to mount barney and mount maroon. The host peter is friendly and very knowledgeable. He was even kind enough to care for our pups while we hiked to creek falls at mount barney.
The only thing i could recommend is having water onsite available though it was not an issue for us as we came fully equipped. Thanks heaps for the enjoyable stay

Fantastic views, remote, never overbooked, lots of wildlife, but still just a short drive from Rathdowney Store for anything you've forgotten.

Lovely isolated site. The campground at the top had a lovely constant breeze.
Must walk along the ridge line to the rocks, where there is a view down to the valley
