Lovingly developed for 15 years as a mindful refuge & wildlife corridor by Victoria, a filmmaker/permaculture designer, the property was completely destroyed in 2018. Thus the mega bushfire cycle began impacting forever most of NSW's flora, fauna & people. Nature ultimately prevails & slowly the untamed terrain is healing. After studying at RMIT School of Architecture & Design for three years with the intention to design tiny living house systems better suited for harsh environments, Victoria has returned. Slowly she rebuilds a humble off-grid existence from the burnt-out bus fusing knowledge of building design with her food forests/aquaponics passion, keen to create an environmentally connected experience to share with like-minded others. By staying you are helping her & all the wild things emerge from the ashes. Thank you.

Great host and location
VIc went to so much trouble to help us find a spot out of the wind. The property is beautiful and we enjoyed the moderate walk to the creek. The cold windy conditions meant that Vic had to work hard on the property but she was cheerful and friendly throughout. We look forward to a return visit in summer!

Relaxing with Friends
We arrived in gale force winds with grassiers alert. It was freezing but we survived the night. Weather slowly improved so we could enjoy what was on offer. A wonderfully relaxing weekend in a beautiful spot.

Serene and Pristine Magic
I have to echo previous reviews in saying that I’m torn in leaving a good review because I don’t want all the bookings to get filled up! But I couldn’t not rave about this place. Just a three hour drive from Sydney, Vic’s property is a dog friendly paradise! 🏕 Acres upon acres of sublime untouched forest, with local Wombats and Kangaroos passing through 🦘 The campsites are ridiculously affordable, and Vic- the host, is one the most incredible and knowledgeable people I’ve ever met. ✨ Do yourself a favour and come and see Mother Nature in all her glory 🌲

Great little spot, good example of genuine Aussie bush. Camp sites are secluded and well spaced, out of eye line for the vast majority, and noise isn't an issue. Great hike opportunity down to the creek (a hilly 9km round trip). Saw some wildlife, a decently sized black snake and a big goanna/lace monitor, and plenty of bird life. Track in and out is probably best for 4wd only when damp, but otherwise should be fine for your average ute/truck/suv etc.

Beautiful and secluded
Beautiful spot in bush. Great set up and very spread out - our closest neighbour was probably 300 metres away. We had site 1 which was perfect for our bigger group. About an hour walk from our spot to the river but you can drive down most of the way and probably a 20 mins walk from there. Driveway to get in was a bit dicey - bigger car would be best after rain but we also had a Skoda which didn't have any problems. A 30 mins drive to wombeyan caves (and tent city) from camp. Victoria was lovely and helpful.
