The Mountain View campsites are near our facilities with power also available. 

There is a gorgeous broad open view with a large shady oak tree and a variety of picnic tables available. This is a great spot to watch the donkeys while you camp, with everything you need at your fingertips. This is a broad flat area where the sites can be spaced apart for privacy, or clumped together if you are a group.

The beautiful retro bathroom facilities are included in your booking. 

Iron Brook Donkey Farm is located on rolling hills of mountain pasture, backing on to the Yarra State Forest. Bushwalk along the little creek among tall trees and majestic tree ferns, or just sit in a deck chair and take in the exquisite views at the top of the hill. Multiple tracks head through the Yarra State Forest where you can wind your way along dirt roads through to Noojee, Powelltown, or Reefton, each of which have a cosy pub at the end of the drive. 

The donkey farm is situated conveniently, halfway between the popular redwood forest, and the giant Ada tree walk. Just chill in your own time, or book an activity or a donkey ride. Donkeys can take riders up to 70kg

We do allow pets, but this MUST be discussed with us prior to booking as we have strict rules around this. We also allow campfires only when fire restrictions aren't in place - which is often all summer. 

Children under 3 are free, but for insurance purposes, please mention them in the comments.

This property has an overall capacity to ensure that our number of visitors remain low. This not only ensures that campers recieve the space and peace they look for in a campsite like this, but also so that we can ensure the bathrooms can be kept clean and not overloaded. This is also a part of our COVID safe plan. 

Due to this overall capacity it is important that you book for the number of people that you intend to have stay, as while we try to accomodate increases to booking numbers, they are not guaranteed unless booked. If we have met overall capacity then we may not be able to approve increases to booking numbers. This is for the comfort and safety of all our visitors. Thank you

Fantastic place to get out of the city and enjoy some nature. The donkeys are amazing and very cute. And a special thanks to Linda who goes absolutely above and beyond. Facilities are great. Make sure you bring plenty of wear for the nights, as it can be pretty chilly. But even then Linda provided us with extra blankets.

Amazing experience, can't wait to get back.

We loved Linda's land and her hospitality. Lots of personal touches to the place. We definitely will be back with our friends. Lovely views of the mountains, friendly donkey ( who came to us every day to say good morning morning ) kids loved them. Very relaxing place , well spread out camp sites, toilet and shower a super bonus..well maintained and clean.

What a lovely experience! We had spectacular views of the other side of the valley completely covered in forest, and we’re treated to a wonderful sunset. And Having 20 donkeys, including donkey foals, ambling around the next field was just delightful for us all. Linda was a great host and the facilities were good. We will be back!

I absolutely loved my 3 night stay at Sarah’s with the cute donkeys! It is in a great position close to Warburton & has lovely views. Sarah provides well maintained & clean toilet/shower amenities, picnic tables etc. Although I was lucky to be the only guest, the sites are well set out so you would never feel crowded in. Sarah is an excellent host & I thoroughly recommend staying here!

My granddaughter and I had a lovely stay at Linda's place. The camp-site was flat and spacious with lovely views and donkeys right at the fence. The toilet facilities were clean and convenient.
Linda was a kind and patient host as my granddaughter had many questions and wanted to share all the different treasures she found with her.
The rooster was quite a noisy neighbour at times but made the farm stay very authentic.
Thanks Linda

Linda’s campsite is fantastic. The views are rolling hills, and while it is just off the main road it still feels very secluded.

When we arrived Linda showed us around and introduced us to the donkeys - they’re absolutely gorgeous! Her knowledge about them is vast and really interesting, we enjoyed learning more about them while we gave them pats.

The bathroom is neat and clean, a big bonus for camping.

I’m looking forward to staying there again soon :)
