Great bush campsite next to a dam. The area is great for bush walks and wildlfe watching, with lots of rocky areas to explore. Surrounded by national parks, exploration and adventure are at your finger tips! Some great nearby wineries for you to enjoy, as well as great places to swim in the warm weather. Great places to fish in the surrounding waterways. Just 15 minutes into Standthorpe, 3 hours from Brisbane. Guests must be full self contained with their own toilet/shower facilities and must take all waste with them on departure. Campfires are welcome in the fire pit provided. Pets are allowed on leash.

Bush camping at its best
Bush camping at its best. We started to name the sheep that would pop in to say hello. Loved going for walks and seeing the old relics tucked in between the granite boulders….. photographer’s haven especially at sunset. Elizabeth is the perfect host and she’s just a genuine beautiful lady. Definitely coming back.

Overall the site was really good. However it is worth noting that there is a bit of a track to get in to the site, which managed to put a few scratches on the caravan.

Absolutely delightful
Absolutely love it. It was our second visit and we’ll definitely be back. She even remembered who we were and knew the area we were requesting to stay in. Although it is a trip from where we live, this will remain our number 1 place to stay. We love exploring the farm with our dog and love to see all the sights. Close to Stanthorpe and the shops while making you feel like you’re the only person in the world.

Liz was amazing and looked after us in every way. The animals are a treat and feeding the joey roo’s was the perfect way to end the day. Would stay again

Very peaceful and quiet camping by the dam. So many frogs to hear as the sun went down. Lovely private spot.

We camped next to a large rock and the view was amazing overlooking the farm. The dogs were so friendly and cute. The camp site was really private and far from other campers. It was amazing.

Private bush camp.
We camped with friends in our caravans and had no trouble finding a flat area to set up. The view was to granite rocks and beyond. Sheep grazed close by. It was very private. The track in was a bit narrow in places but we manoeuvred ok. Will return.

So beautiful, spacious and quiet, yet so close to the best wineries and entertainment on the Granite Belt. You would hold back the review to ensure it does not get too popular. But jokes aside, if you love nature and camping by yourself with a lovely hist, farm animals and want to bring your dog, you cannot go past this spot.

Beautiful 🤩
We had a wonderful stay at Liz’s place. Beautiful scenery, peaceful and quiet. Pure serenity. A lovely visit from a cute sheep as well. You will need a 4WD for this site 😊

Just as good as a national park!
What a gem. This property is such a find. So much space, epic scenery, giant granite boulders to climb up on and take in the sunset. Beautiful rusted vintage trucks standing like sculptures among the kangaroos and sheep. Liz is a super friendly host and made us and our dogs feel so welcome. We'll be back for sure.

Great stay in Stanthorpe!
My son and I needed a quick overnight camp and this place ticked all the boxes. Its quiet and it's wild and we made a big fire with the wood supplied.

John and Liz were super welcoming and generous! We arrived on Christmas Eve in the dark after a big storm and were so very kindly offered to stay in an empty cottage for for night, so as not to have to find a spot and set up camp in the mud and pitch black. Was a very nice Christmas treat for us. The property is beautiful with endless patches of forest to explore, plenty of space to find your own private campsite, the dogs at the house are gorgeous, there's plenty of wildlife and farm animals for entertainment. We really loved our time out there :)
