Had a fantastic stay at this beautiful and peaceful campsite. Mark is a great host and it was a privilege to stay on his amazing property. Campsite itself is nice and isolated and plenty of room for our 3 group setup. Great to hear all the birdies in the morning and watch all the wildlife around you. Lots to see and do in the area or just relax and town not far away. Definitely worth it!

Just sept a few relaxing days at Island Bend. Very quiet, and peaceful, nice flat ground covered in grass, located next to the water, and best of all no one else within sight - just perfect. Mark the host is one of life's true gentlemen, this was our second visit (more planned too). Highly recommended.

Island Bend. Another day in paradise. Private, secure and very peaceful.

Really private with only the sheep and the birds as neighbours. We parked right next to a water hole. The dogs loved it. We went for a few walks around the farm and could see other campers who didn’t have as private a spot as ours. You definitely need your own toilet here as it’s a long way to the shearing shed.

What a perfect camping spot! Private, idyllic, picture perfect! This was our second time camping at Mark’s place and we have booked in for the third! Mark’s such a great guy and an awesome host. You just cant find such a place free-camping or in a park. Thats why we stay there. The privacy is what it means; private. And the dogs love it! Thanks again Mark!

My dogs and I had a fabulous time at Island Bend.
The campsite was large and spacious.
It was very tranquil and Mark is a wonderful host.
I’d definitely love to come back again.
