Elands TereTulemast EXCLUSIVE SITES
24 sites · RVs, Tents90 acres · Elands, New South WalesGuudji Yiigu Nyiirunang - Birpai for Welcome Everyone! We are only the caretakers of this land for the next generation, and excited to share it with your families so you may enjoy this beautiful NSW destination called Elands. Teretulemast is an Estonian name, it means WELCOME. THE HISTORY OF OUR PLACE as we know it: The Birpai people were the original and will always be the landowners of this area, we respect those past and present who took care of this land and lived amongst it, and hope to care for it until somebody else takes over this place. The property we care for and live on is a ex rainforest, pasture improved as they say and ex cattle farm. It has a mix of cleared acres, rainforest pockets, fresh and free-flowing river running through both sides of the property to swim/paddle in, so many birds, platypus (we never see them just our quiet neighbours do), eel, fish, deer, kangaroos, wallabies (and koalas in the greater Elands area). And of course, BIG open skies to enjoy a campfire under. Short 3 min drive or walk (15 min) or swim (20 min), to Ellenborough falls & much more to see and do or just RELAX! No shops here or speedy internet to get distracted from nature! HOW CLOSE TO THE FALLS ARE WE: We are two driveways away from Ellenborough falls (approx 800 metres) or 20 min swim away, 15 min walk or 3 min drive! A 40 min drive to Tapin Tops National Park, Dingo Tops and the famous Potaroo Falls, and the usual local hangouts like the Rapids & the top of the Falls 5-7 min away. Closest towns, Wingham & Comboyne 45 min away. STUFF TO DO: -Ride your bike along quiet dirt roads with amazing views - give the FLOW trail a go - book the river flat and get exclusive access to the pump track - swimming on your door step, kayaking, air bed down river, inflatables are super fun in our river -play games with your kids outdoors, watch fire flies in October, watch the fire flicker each night with a drink, jump off a tree at the top of the falls (3 min away), exploring and just watching the big sky you get access to now you are out of the city! -Make it a party or a family catchup on the River Flat or Serenity bring your tribe plus the dog! MORE INFO: To see more please just type this into Google or Instagram #teretulemastelands FAQ ON CAMPING HERE: We have improved ALL roads into our property. This doesn't mean two wheels drives won't get bogged, but it will make it easier for dry weather access for most. While we advise 4x4 are better suited all year around.. it is a property, and no tarred road. So on occasions even a 4x4 may need a tow weather turning ugly. But since April 2022, roads vastly improved! And wide access provided through gates making it easier with large camper trailers & caravans, plus solar power installed for lighting and fridge in shed on river flat & fire place working!!! (only happened August 2022 - we are a tad excited to share it with you). - Animal friendly property (ask us for info on this if not just a dog) - River access from all sites (we have 2 main large sites all to yourselves and 2-3 smaller ones all just for you) - fresh water and yes you can swim in it and we drink it! Water tastes sweeter with all natures minerals flowing through it. - Telstra Mobile Reception ONLY (belong, aldi plans) (Most sites, 1-2 bars max - just enough to upload a photo to insta and tag us #teretulemastelands) - HOT shower, toilet, bbq and enclosed shed with tables/chairs/lights/fireplace/fire pits x 2. - Two Toilets; loads of space on SERENITY (next improvements will be hot shower & outdoor kitchen/shed) & a fire pit. _ Equipment for HIRE (tents, comfy beds, chairs, tables, kitchen; gas stove thru to gazebos - even large ones for functions) - just ask us! - River Flat price INCLUDES shed use AND pump track ! Great for functions or out of rain camping fun, includes so much - check out River Flat site for further details AND the new PUMP TRACK! - Campfires YES - let us know if you would like to buy Firewood $150 for a std trailer load (usually will do 3 big nights of fires or a week if saavy) and we will deliver to site ready for your arrival - see Extras for details *no trees to fell for wood sorry - we are trying to grow them here! But help yourself to kindling. :). - REAL Australia - spiders/snakes/ticks be prepared *ask us if need help -ENSURE you leave nothing, take rubbish off the mountain with you please too or we can take it for a cash fee (which helps us pay for petrol and tipping fees as no rubbish bin here)! - The shop on the mountain doesn't hold ICE very often (more bread, milk, post office, some alcohol and ice creams), so please pick up from Wingham COLES or Comboyne IGA! HOT TIP: Organise your Coles pick up from Wingham or Comboyne IGA so you don't even have to pack your food, just simply pick it up when your 1 hour away - we can even hire you an esky or if you are staying on the river flat, no need, it comes with access to our off grid stand up fridge/freezer! Perfect! And don't forget your ICE and petrol at Wingham or Comboyne, last stop!! HIRE EQUIPMENT and SAVE YOUR BOOT SPACE, the environment and your Marriage, plus buying cheap chairs; gazebos you will only throw out anyway. All you need to do once you arrive then is sit down and open a beer, or setup that cheese platter and release the kids and the dog! PARTIES are allowed, but please note: we do need advance notice at the point of booking. It may be a busy weekend with people wanting quiet space on other spots (despite you not seeing them from your exclusive spot will impact their enjoyment) plus add an extra fee depending on the type of function (especially where we are managing cars and people to site), and also be comfortable with paying min $150 for tipping fees (one trailer load to the tip) if you do require us to take your rubbish. We live a long way from the tip and from past experience, large groups can and do make loads of mess, please do not litter our beautiful river and Bulga plateau area. RIVER FLAT shed has crockery, cups and wine glasses; loads of cutlery you are welcome further reduce your waste by using and taking care of. We only ask you wash items up well and put items back after use! FREE OF CHARGE. :). Festivals/Events - talk to us direct. Farm Life Our animals are for our sustainability, but we are happy if you would like to come meet our farm family. Just let us know when you get here and we are happy to organise a time to walk through and feed our many animals. Text also works great to organise these things without you having to leave your campsite! :) Kids love finding the chicken eggs, patting/feeding the elusive naughty goats, the busy horses, and enjoy herding the cows when we need them moved. We have 3 noisy dogs, who love to bark as you drive past.. just while you drive past, but still.. rather a loud farm welcome! If we still have your attention and maybe you are a little excited to investigate further, please review our listings, and please don't be shy in asking us whatever you need! We have had large functions before, some loud, some quiet, some just to enjoy the night sky and others just for the exclusive site.. not wanting to share with anyone else! We want to be sure we are the right place you are looking for so just drop us a line! From Jenny, Lucas and our 3 crazy teens; and the many furry and feathered animals. For more info and photos see our instagram page #teretulemastelands We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Timbarra Valley
8 sites · RVs, Tents25000 acres · Rocky River, New South WalesThe Timbarra or Rocky River is an area of great beauty southeast of Tenterfield with soaring mountains cradling the river flats and undulating hills below and is a renowned cattle breeding region.  The Petrie family have been in Tenterfield since 1860 and have owned properties in the valley for over 100 years.  Tim’s great-grandfather was known as Rocky Jack because of his extensive holdings.  Cattle are still walked up to the Timbarra Plateau property from the river properties ‘Man From Snowy River’ style.  The Plateau can be seen rising above the valley to the north from the confluence of Demon Creek and the Timbarra/Rocky River.  These flow along the Demon Fault which is clearly visible on a satellite map.  The 3 valley properties ‘Corner Camp’, ‘Boundary’ and ‘’Pavels’ combined with ‘Timbarra Plateau’ total over 25000 acres.  The whole valley was part of 2 earlier large selections averaging 100000 acres which gradually became broken up in the late 1800s/early 1990s. There is a proud timber history in the valley and the surrounding forested mountains with large sections of State Forest now transferred to Washpool National Park which abuts both the eastern and western boundaries of ‘Boundary’ (which takes its name from Boundary Creek). The National Park and Forestland State Forest can be accessed to the west via the Billirimba Fire Trail.  The eastern section of Washpool  stretches across to the Clarence River, the largest eastern river in NSW. Washpool is where the Cedar King went missing and was never located.   The Timbarra/Rocky River flows into the Clarence at Tabulam and then on to Grafton and out to sea at Yamba. The headwaters of the Rocky are all the way south to the Glen Innes Grafton road so the river can rise quickly if there is a downpour upstream.  Interestingly when the Chinese gold miners left the Timbarra Plateau they came down with rickshaws into the Timbarra Valley then scaled the mountains to the west, near Boundary Creek, looking for their next gold diggings towards Glen Innes. The Boundary campsites at Boundary Riverside, The Cockatoo, The China Wall, and the Caves are all suitable for caravans, RVs, Camping trailers, tents and swags as is Timbarra Plateau.  Corner Camp and Pavels are suitable for camping trailers, tents and swags.  Boundary campsites access are all unaffected if the river rises however we will not take bookings at Corner Camp or Pavels in the likelihood of the river rising as we are committed to safety and avoiding inconvenience for guests.  The Rocky is a very special place and we have campers who first came as children and are now bringing their grandchildren.  We expect our guests to treat the area respectfully, and only leave footprints and tyre tracks.  The valley provides wonderful scenery and settings for bushwalking, birdwatching, photography, painting, bicycle riding, swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding and canoeing, or just kicking back relaxing by the river, listening to the soothing sounds of the water, birds, and the turtles and platypus splashing, or being amazed at the mirror like images on the waters surface on a still day or the flickering light of a campfire at night and the stars above.

Stonepine Ridge 'where eagles fly'
31 sites · RVs, Tents1864 acres · Willsons Downfall, New South WalesSpace, scenic views, great mountain biking, abundant wildlife, peace and quiet. These best describe this 754 hectare (1864 acres) working cattle property. If you are interested in seeing more of the property outside of the camping areas, please let me know. You have the option of visiting other parts of the property so you can enjoy a whole day hiking in the bush through rain forest, steep inclines and across creeks and rivers. Stonepine Ridge is 'remote' - your camp sites are away from any dwellings - but you are still close enough to country towns across borders. There is plenty of space for social distancing. Most camp sites are 50 or more metres apart. The terrain is mostly treed with some cleared, pastured country. On the border with the Queensland town of Stanthorpe, Stonepine Ridge is close to the historic areas of Willsons Downfall and Amosfield in New South Wales. Home to many rivers that traverse the property from top to bottom, the Boonoo Boonoo and Bookookookarara rivers and Undercliffe and Boonoo Boono Falls are close by and are popular sites to spend a few hours walking/hiking and immersing yourself in the ambient countryside. The Boonoo Boonoo and Bald rock National Parks are also within this area. The beautiful New England town of Tenterfield is about 20 minutes drive from the falls and offers visitors many shopping and restaurant options. Be sure to stop en route to visit the World War 2 tank traps - (Australia's Maginot Line) and Thunderbolt's hideout. A short drive across the border into Queensland will give you access to the Girraween National Park and a host of wineries, coffee shops, restaurants and pubs. At Stonepine Ridge, some areas of the top country are accessible by 2WD when not wet but high suspension and 4wheel drive vehicles are recommended. This camping property is large and you will find no better place that allows for gentle as well as more advanced walking, hiking and mountain biking. The altitude on the property varies from 900m at the top down to 50m to the bottom. The temperature is variable with mostly cool nights, which makes for restful sleep and a nice fire to add to the ambience.

All camping options

Head north and south of Sydney and you’ll find more beaches than you can count, as well as lakes and winding rivers, thundering waterfalls, and lush rainforests. Beyond the sandstone curtain of the Great Dividing Range, with its gorges in the north and snow-covered alps in the south, stretch the western slopes and plains, full of country towns and hidden surprises. Head to the far west and you’ll find yourself on the edge of the Outback. With more national parks than any other state (and more diversity of landscapes, too) New South Wales delivers the goods when it comes to unforgettable getaways.

Where to Go

The Blue Mountains

Lace up your boots for one of Australia's best bushwalking destinations. The ridge of mountains two hours west of Sydney by road or train is a World Heritage-listed wonderland of sandstone canyons, waterfalls, valleys, and clifftop lookouts. The national park offers remote bush campsites, or you can go for a bit more comfort in one of the region’s many caravan and holiday parks. 

NSW North Coast

The coastline of northern NSW, from north of Newcastle to the Queensland border, is classic beach holiday territory. Almost every town has at least one caravan park, often with waterfront campsites, and most of the coastline is protected by national parks with fantastic camping spots and facilities. Flanked by the Great Dividing Range and World Heritage rainforests, the North Coast has Hipcampers spoilt for choice. 

NSW South Coast

Every bit as wild as the North Coast, the South Coast stretches south of Sydney to the Victorian border with a string of national parks, state forests, campgrounds, and seaside towns with family-friendly holiday parks. Kangaroos and wallabies graze the camping grounds and laze on the beaches, which have some of the whitest sand in the world. Kayak the waterways, bushwalk the forests, and soak in the views from the mountaintops.

Snowy Mountains

Alpine New South Wales, also known as the Snowy Mountains, stretches from the ACT south to the Victorian border along the spine of the Great Dividing Range. Along with hundreds of camping spots, the big attraction of Kosciuszko National Park—the largest national park in NSW—is Australia’s highest peak, Mount Kosciuszko. In winter, the area is a magnet for skiers, and in summer, fishing, bushwalking, and mountain biking reign supreme.

NSW Outback

The far western corner of NSW is a great introduction to the Outback, where endless red dust plains seem to stretch on forever under cloudless blue skies. Take a road trip out here and you'll see plenty of kangaroos and emus, but not many people. National parks such as Mungo, Mutawintji, and Kinchega offer superb camping spots, Aboriginal art sites, and stunning scenery.

Hipcamp is created with ❤️ and hope for our future.
