Wattle Valley Farm lies is a 100 acre property, bounded by the iconic Wollombi Brook, which many native wildlife call home.  During your stay, you might even come across some of our friendly native residents like wombats, kangaroos, echidnas, goannas, kookaburras and black cockatoos. We also have a number of short walks you are welcome to take if you want to explore the property while you are here, including local Aboriginal cave art and our beautiful scenic river walk. Wattle Valley Farm is located in the heart of the Wollombi Valley and the Hunter Valley wine region, making it an ideal base while you explore everything the region has to offer.  The historic village of Wollombi is only five minutes up the road, and has a lively cafe scene, unique experiences and the famous Wollombi Tavern. Meanwhile, the popular Broke and Pokolbin wine regions are a short 30-40 minute drive along the beautiful, meandering country roads.

First time with Hipcamp and couldn’t have had a better time at Matt & Jenna’s. Plenty of space to spread out and for the kids to play around and a beautiful river to swim in at your leisure. Would definitely go again!

My family and I really enjoyed camping at Wattle Valley Farm. Such a great space, close to town. Lovely and secluded, the camping spots are far enough away from others that you can still feel like your in your own little slice of heaven.

Welcoming with Warm Showers
Matt and Jenna were very welcoming. The site is quite large which allows space from other campers. They have nice flat ground which is perfect for any kind of camping arrangement. Such a win to find a place with hot showers and nice amenities - little bit of luxury whilst camping indeed! They were also very helpful with suggesting where to set up (as it had been raining and warned of only one tiny space that may have mud). There was also a nice more private area which would be around one campsite (we didn’t stay there but a family did and they looked to enjoy it). River was quite turbid (perhaps due to the recent rain) however 4 of us still went swimming and enjoyed it. Would definitely revisit if ever in the area. Thanks Matt and Jenna !

We had a lovely time staying at Wattle Valley Farm. Matt and Jenna are friendly and welcoming hosts. The sites are large and spread out. The property is well maintained. Loved that each site had it's own firepit. Amenities are adequate. River is short walk away. Was lots of fun swimming in the waterholes. Only downside to the whole experience was the water was very muddy - showers required after each dip!

Loved the friendly welcome by the owner. Swimming in the river and kids playing in the large open clean grass field are two enjoyable part of the stay. Almost no flies or insect.

Well worth a trip
Matt and Jenna met us on arrival and gave us a run down on the amenities and where we could set up. They were both very welcoming. There property is perfect for camping with kids. The showers were hot and kept clean. The toilets were also spotless. We had an early morning swim amd paddle board in the river. Overall we had a great relaxing experience.

Good option for camping close to Sydney. Also good that's it's close to Wollombi village so you can go for a drink, dinner or a few shops if you fancy getting out. The campsites on the grass close to the creek get taken first so get early if you want one of those. We camped in the forest area which we didn't mind as there is much more shade and it was super hot and it's more private. Careful though choose well as there are big ants around. It's nice having showers and drinking water. The creek was really muddy brown to look at but actually really nice once you in and so good to have a swimming option. You can build a fire near each site. All and all a nice option for a few nights close to Sydney especially if you like some amenities and not hardcore campers like us!

Great place for a night, or longer if you’ve got a couple of families who want to kick a ball around. Plenty of flat grass to camp on and toilets were clean. The river is ok but a bit muddy

Comfy camping for cyclists
Beautiful campsite with plenty of space between campers, clean hot showers and toilets! We booked last minute, and Matt was very kind to come and say hi and point out a good spot. The easy ride from Wollombi Tavern was about 4.5km, on sealed road with no shoulders and a few blind corners, but not too much traffic on a Sat night. Bonus: A big kangaroo came cruising through the camp in the morning - he also seemed very happy with the place :)

It is a wonderful camping site! It is quite big and never feel crowded even during it’s busy time! The whole camp site is quite clean even though they do not provide rubbish collection service. I’m quite happy with that , because we need show respects to our mother nature

Worth a visit
The camp site is well layed and provides campers space. The host was very friendly and helpful The amenities are clean We saw a bit of wildlife and some fish and eels in the river. The river would be highly affected by the season so if your going for this check the recent weather. It was good while we were there had a swim Not sure about the caves the art looked fake to me Overall it’s worth a visit

Great spot close to Sydney
We really enjoyed our stay even though it was over new year Jenna and Matt make sure it's not crowded we had our own little corner of heaven and was lovely and quiet. Also no mossies and very few flies! We enjoyed swimming in the river too and great to have the luxury of flush toilets and showers.

We had a lovely time camping at Wattle Valley Farm. Matt warmly welcomed us on arrival and gave us all the information needed about the site. We chose a flat campsite in a corner of the large flat area but close to the trees with access to the river. Hot showers and flushing toilets were great. We paddled our inflatable SUPs and swam in the river. There are quite a few trees down across the river due to the recent floods (July 2022) but it is still beautiful. Had a go at fishing but didn’t catch anything despite seeing several large carp in the shallows. We bought firewood and had campfires each night. The two walks up the hill are worthwhile, especially if you are interested in native flora.

Well spaced out campsites. Great facilities ( toilets showers etc). The location is nice and peaceful. My partner met Jenna and she really nice and polite. The communication was spot on. I highly recommend this place to camp. We are considering coming back later in the year as we didn’t really get to explore the areas as much due to storms and heavy rain.

Pros: - Beautiful location - stunning caves with Aboriginal hand prints - Close to a town if needed Cons: - I don't believe there are any fish in that stagnant body of water. Fishing is a waste of time and shouldn't be advertised - Camp site was way over filled. We felt like we were at a festival, privacy wise. We had a family of 5 placed 3m from our tent. Ruined our second day

Great for camping with kids
We’re so glad we chose this place for our first camping experience with our two toddlers. The views are beautiful, great walking tracks, amazing hosts and clean facilities. The shower is HOT! They also had a shuttle set up for the local tavern on NYE.
