Spirit of the Forest is one of the oldest properties in the area. Many years ago  it was an old dairy farm, but it has been through many transitions since then.... uniquely situated only a few kms. from the majestic "Grandis" tree it has an abundance of wildlife close by, wallabies come out to feed on the pasture at dusk and dawn, mighty eagles soar overhead and beautiful Arabian horses run free in the paddocks. Trevor and Maya moved here from Berry NSW 17 years ago. Trevor is an internationally acclaimed entertainer and horse whisperer and Maya is an artist, author and lecturer. Both found the property a haven from their busy schedule of performing overseas. A unique 70 acre Arabian horse property, surrounded by Myall Lakes National Park 4 kms from "The Grandis" the tallest tree in NSW and 10 kms from Bulahdelah Town also near to beautiful North Coast beaches.  There are many beautiful areas to choose from to camp, as well as a cabin. A portable 240v generator (1) is available for hire $10.00 a day, fuel included, advance booking.

Huge property with plenty of space between campers. There were 4 other campers that we detected but were just specs in the distance! Trevor was very nice and helpful. It was slightly daunting towing a large caravan along the access road but was fine with some care. We were told there is only about 4 cars per day that use the road and from our stay we can certainly believe it. Our site was in the open which suited us as we preferred to get a better look at the night sky. There are some sites under trees for anyone preferring some shade. We had a great stay and would definitely recommend.

such a beautiful place to stay. The hosts were very welcoming and lovely on arrival. The toilet was the cleanest one I have seen my whole trip! Felt very safe (being a female solo traveler) and definitely would recommend it to anyone! Having the horses and wallaby’s keep me company was a great bonus!

We really enjoyed camping here on Trevor’s property. Such a beautiful spot and so much space for the kids to run around. It was extremely peaceful and Trevor a lovely host. So great to meet all his many animals too. We would love to come back another time and would happily recommend this camping spot to others.

So beautiful
Such a lovely location. The spaces are beautifully set apart from each other and they have a fire pit you can use. We had a spot near the dam which was a lovely spot with some shade.

Beautiful quiet place with lovely outlook. Very interesting talking to Trevor about his life and his passions. Bathroom facilities absolutely spotless. We camped beside a pond with lilly pads and the nighttime chorus was wonderful.

Even though it rained ......
Even in the rain it was a beautiful and peaceful place to be. Serenity and quiet. We were near a dam and the frogs sang us to sleep. Trevor and Maya made us very welcome and our 9 yr old granddaughter loved being near the horses and hearing Trevors tales of his life both as an entertainer and horseman. Well worth the trip and loved our time there.

Beautiful stay
Great place to stay. Trevor was very helpful and friendly. The farm is located in the national park, with a beautiful drive in and out. Surrounded by horses, birds and Roos at dusk and dawn, while being a stones throw from all the best beaches.

Quiet & tranquil green pastures
This property is so well looked after and we felt so welcomed by hosts Trevor and Maya. Meeting the horses and whippet puppies were highlights, as was seeing the Roos grazing every morning and evening. We did a day trip to the grandis and we’re told where to get the best fish and chips at Forster too.

We stayed one night, It’s a nice and peaceful campsite. You would be surrounded by lots of wood. The campfire was fun entertainment also watching wallabies and many stars.

Good little spot
It was the perfect spot for us on our way up north. The location was great and safe and peaceful, and the on-site toilet was super convenient, and Trevor was a great host. There was only one toilet working during our stay though which we understood was unplanned. Overall a good little spot to stay

Cabin in middle of National Park
Lovely family getaway!
Thank you so much Trevor & Maya for making our stay so memorable! You guys are so kind, passionate and genuinely caring. Our boys and us loved staying in the "caravan" cabin, which was basic but had everything we needed! It gave us a very private "camping-feel" experience which we love! We thoroughly enjoyed your property in the middle of the National Park. The location was in our view perfect to explore Grandis, Bulahdelah and the Myall Lakes. It has been very special to watch the beautiful morning fog, hear many different birds sing, see your horses grazing, enjoy the incredible views into nature and see thousands of stars at night! Thanks for letting us be part of feeding the dogs, chooks and horses. As well as hear all of your knowledge about horses and your musical talents/stories Trevor. We will cherish these memories forever and would highly recommend your cabin to anyone who loves nature and camping! We hope to see you again in the future, take care :-)

We loved camping here for the night it was very peaceful and next time would love to stay longer. The sites were big and the kids had lots of room to play. Trevor and his wife were lovely and even showed the kids the puppies which was a highlight for the kids

Great spot
Beautiful secluded spot. Quiet and well spaced, a good distance from other campers. Stunning mornings. Great to wake to the horses and birds. Trevor is welcoming and looks after his guests. Would recommend
