Recent Hipcampers say this Hipcamp is romantic.
Experience life on a country road in the rainforest of Northern NSW. We are in Tuntable Creek, the next village up from the legit hippie enclave of The Channon. This is a unique part of Australia where we are all immersed in taking care of our land and dedicated to a peaceful, happy lifestyle- this area is the home of the famous Aquarius Festival of the 70’s so the vibe is strong! Our property, called The Rainforest Farm, is a 5 acre terraced haven that features an abundance of natives, fruit trees and bird life. We consider our Hipcamp offerings a farm stay where you become part of the property, experience a tree change lifestyle and retreat from the busy-ness of life. We have two accommodations on the property. One is The Patti - our 1965 cozy retro caravan named after rocker Patti Smith. The Patti features a comfy double mattress. You will need to bring your own bedding and towels. We provide a mattress protector. The sleeping area also converts to a table top or you can leave it for snoozing. The Patti has facilities for light cooking, a fridge, a small sitting nook (which can be used as a bed if the person using it is very small) and is attached to a deck to enjoy nature. Although you are in a remote area, the caravan is adjacent to the gravel road and our home is right next door so you won’t feel isolated. Chances are good you'll see us working on our land or will meet the occasional neighbour Our other sleeping area is The Rainforest Hut - a simple hand built A Frame cabin, perched at the edge of the property - close enough to the main house so you don't feel totally on your own but incredibly private so you can enjoy your own experience.. It is forest bathing to the max! The Rainforest Hut has a quality double sized mattress and is perfect for couples or a single. Next to the hut, is a simple bush kitchen featuring a small gas stove, a functional sink, a little fire pit and chair. The Patti and The Rainforest Hut both have full use of a communal Camp Kitchen and gathering area which is between them both. The Camp Kitchen features a BBQ, sink, picnic table, chairs and fire pit. Both accomodations also have The Wash House - a simple flushing toilet, sink and dressing room with outdoor hot/cold shower is about 50 metres walk from both. . We are usually around for a chat but will also help you have as much privacy as you wish. In the evenings, put on the supplied head lamps and go for a night hike up the road, warm your toes around the campfire or stare at the ever changing night sky. Extras included are yoga, vision boarding and Hippie High Tea parties. Staying in the Patti or in The Rainforest Hut is the perfect escape for artists, yogis, writers, influencers, those curious about a tree change or for anyone just wanting to chill out and enjoy the peace and quiet of our beautiful region. We look forward to having you stay with us! No pets please and due to the wild nature of the land, this property may not be suitable for children under 12.

The Rainforest Hut
The most beautiful spot that has everything you need and more. Sue and Dale were so accommodating and have gone above and beyond to create such a relaxing environment. Waking up and watching the sunrise in bed was definitely a highlight, but that’s just one of many. Would highly recommend Whian Whian Falls as well as The Channon markets for things to do while you’re there. We wish we could’ve stayed longer and will definitely be back! Thanks again Sue and Dale 😊

The Rainforest Hut
1000/10
We had such an amazing and relaxing time at the rainforest hut. Sue and Dale were great, accommodating and friendly hosts! We usually rough it out when camping, so it was a lovely luxury to have a warm shower and inside toilet! The hut is super cozy and waking up with the birds and the sun is magical! Could not recommend this stay enough! Thanks so much Sue and Dale 😊

Sue and Dale were tremendously accommodating and welcoming. The site has incredible views over a beautiful valley and are well equipped with a variety of camping neccesities. Would recommend to anyone needing that escape from their busy life or the city for some relaxation and reconnecting with nature.

The Rainforest Hut
A nice quiet area to gather your thoughts. A lovely time away for a couple looking to get away from busier areas. The Hut is beautiful and feels as if you’re waking up amongst the treetops. Everything is provided, toilets, hot shower, living area and cooking stations. Sue is extremely lovely and accomodating! She had showed us the camp, giving a run down on how to use what is provided. All in all 11/10 experience and a 6 Star Rating.

Rainforest Hut - Paradise!
It was incredibly special to be the first to stay at the rainforest hut. To say I enjoyed myself would be an understatement! What an experience it was to wake up to the sound of birds chirping and an in incredible sunrise from the comfort of our bed! The lush surroundings of the hut made for a perfect rainforest getaway. relaxing, peaceful and beautiful! Sue and Dale were the perfect hosts. I’ve never met such friendly and accomodating people! They went out of their way to make our experience perfect, it was greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend the rainforest hut and i’m sure i’ll be back in the future!

The Patti - Retro Caravan
Incredible spot up in tuntable creek! Sue & Dale were so lovely and helpful during our short stay, and the view from the cabin, the outdoor shower, the sleep in the cutest little caravan ever were all absolutely unforgettable! Thankyou so much Sue & Dale for the flowers, popcorn and hand-written note especially. ❤️
