Visit Tathra, but stay at Kangarutha, only 2km from the edge of town, and enjoy space, privacy and tranquillity.
We intentionally only have a limited number of campsites on our large property, so that you can enjoy camping in a natural setting away from the crowd.
Our stunning property is comprised of open paddock areas surrounded by large areas of native forests, and we border national park.
We are establishing a fruit and vegetable farm, and an ecotourism business, here on the property.
Enjoy the forest trails here on the property, which take you on a tour to our peaceful back dam. Or explore further afield - our place links to both the Tathra-Kalaru bike track and the Bournda National Park, where you can access the Tathra Mountain Bike Trail Network, as well as the secluded coves along the Kangarutha Walking Track.
Our property was home to the former and well-loved businesses 'Kangarutha Nursery', and 'On the Perch Bird Park'. We have been busy re-imagining these spaces.
We have flushing accessible toilets a short walk from the campsites.
Our property is dog friendly for well behaved dogs that don't chase wildlife or the horses on our property. No hunting dogs.
Campfires permitted when there are no restrictions. You can gather your own wood, or we can prepare wood for you.

Site 1 - Kangarutha Bush Camp
Top Spot Serene & Peaceful
Lovely serene and peaceful stay. Great well separated camp sites with lots of room and sufficient privacy. Some good walking/bike/horse trails on the property and adjacent NP. A must is back lake. Good clean toilet block a bonus. Tom (who was away during our stay) was very fast at responding to our correspondence upon arrival and after. A great base to retreat to after exploring the local region.

Round Yard Paddock Camp
Great place to stay
The round yard was beautiful and I would stay there again! Loved reading about the property at the bathrooms and we were visited by a few horses which was nice.

Camp by the Dam
Such a peaceful location and so close to Tathra! It was our second time back with Tom’s and we invited friends to join us Saturday night. The site easily for us both with plenty of privacy for couples and of course stunning views of the dam for all. Lots of firewood supplies to help stay warm and multiple pits to choose from.

Camp by the Dam
Picture perfect and awesome hosts
You could not ask for more. Beautiful camping spot with awesome sunsets over the beautiful dam and amazing clear sky milky-way.
Thoroughly beautiful spot run and cared for by Tom and Lisa, who greeted us and made sure we parked in a prime spot.
The whole place to ourselves ❤️
