Best for self-contained campers. There are no toilets, showers, or water at this Hipcamp.
Bordered by Wild Cattle Creek State Forest and neighbouring grazing properties, our farm is quite remote and secluded. We are located on the Eastern Dorrigo Plateau between Coffs Harbour and Dorrigo off the MR 120, a beautiful (windy) scenic drive.
On the way to us, you will drive through the historic timber villages of Ulong and Timmsvale into the Wild Cattle Creek State Forest via a well graded gravel forestry road, to reach our gate, where we will meet you and guide you to your camp site.
We are a working cattle property and run a big mob of mostly Angus cattle and practice Regenerative Agriculture. We are regenerating country that was clear felled in the mid 1800s and over grazed, into a thriving, future-proof farm for our 4 children and 2 grand children. Many trees are to be planted using the principles of Syntropic Agroforestry.
The Little Nymboida River runs through the property and is home to the Muluny. (Gumbaynggirr for platypus) You may also encounter wallabies, bandicoots, cockatoos, goannas, snakes, eagles and a wide variety of bird and insect life. There are some glorious rapids and swimming holes for a dip or paddle (BYO kayak or float) but generally the river is shallow so perfect for kids to explore.
We have 15 acres of regenerating bush that has walking tracks, perfect for forest bathing and getting back to nature in a completely safe way. The boundary is fenced so you cant get lost! The 100 acre side of the farm where you are camped, also has tracks to explore. We have a dedicated wildlife reserve on an adjacent hill and from there you may spot a Muluny in the deep corner bend, if you are really quiet. Homes can be seen in the distance but you really will have the feeling of being a million miles away from civilisation.
Close by there is the opportunity to go waterfall chasing, swimming, kayaking, 4WDing, forest driving, bush walking or visit the small villages of Ulong and Lowanna for a meal or essential supplies and check out the historic Railway stations.
