Fantastic spot, really nicely maintained and super easy to access and get parked - our caravan is 25ft long so if we can get on anyone can! Steve and Shae are great hosts and the kids loved seeing the cows. Fire pit area and free firewood are perfect. Cheers.

The Farm! 5/5
Steve and Shae are absolutely amazing hosts! The farm at cradle country is immaculate! There is a massive level area that is fully fenced in with a gate, which made it easy for our 1 year old to roam around the incredibly soft grass to her hearts content. The resident cows are just as friendly as Steve and Shae and they absolutely love a good pat! There is a rustic outdoor entertainment area with a large fire pit and firewood provided. There is also delicious fresh produce that you can purchase cheaply from Steve and Shae’s market garden just by texting your order to the provided phone number. Their is a bin provided for convenience, although there are no other facilities available. The farm is an extremely peaceful and uncrowded getaway and one that we will definitely be returning to in the future! 5/5 from us!

Such an amazing farm stay! Steve and shae gave us such a warm welcome. Sites are level and the grass is delightfully soft! We had the whole place to ourselves. Would definitely stay again! Steve took the kids to feed the goats and cows. Available fresh produce for purchase including kale, strawberries, raspberries, eggs and garlic. Fire pit available on site. Only complaint is good a old moo-er (cow) woke me from my afternoon nap after a too long day at the very close by Tasmazia with his incessant moo-ing. Very inconsiderate cow. ;) Note: the pin isn't in the right spot on wiki camps and you need to prebook on Hipcamp.

Beautiful grassy spot that was quiet and peaceful. Kids loved the cows. Site 10 at the end of the paddock was perfect for us. Great spot that we would highly recommend.

Cradle farm is a fantastic family run camp area. Well maintained, with beautiful views of the farm. Steve and his family are welcoming and provides the option to purchase very affordable and taste farm fresh treats. Would definitely recommend this spot!! We are just sad we could only spend one night here.

A peaceful location 😊👍
Great and peaceful location. The owners are really doing them best to offer a pleasant, maintained, flat land for fast end easy setup. Recommend to ask and purchase their fresh organic farm produces but especially the eggs for the best breakfast you can imagine in a caravan or motorhome trip.

Beautiful site. Plenty of room for our 24 foot van and for the kids to run around. Loved watching and feeding the cows. Close to Cradle Mtn, Tasmazia and local shops.

The Farm was a great central place to camp, close to the caves, cradle, trowanna, and all the lottle fishing spots we found. Shar and steve were very helpful, lovely quiet location. Still eating Steve’s lettuce, garlic and eggs! Thanks guys, HNY!

We just stayed here for 2 nights. The owners are really lovely and happy for a chat. They let us pat the cows, feed the goats and collect chicken eggs. Great location for us to visit Cradle Mountain. We stayed in the paddock, it was a nice flat grassed area with a nice enclosed firepit area. Highly recommend 👌

Grassy farm site with great hosts
A lovely quiet grassy site, in beautiful countryside. The recently built communal fire pit area is a really good size and was enjoyed by all who were camping there. Steve is a great host who is eager to show you round the farm and introduce you to the cattle, goats (Kevin and Bevan) and the chickens. The fresh farm eggs are awesome! This is a lovely site for adults and kids alike - and it is an ideal location to explore the local area with Lake Barrington, Tasmazia and Mount Roland close by, and the township of Sheffield just a 15 minute drive away

Love 'the Farm'
The Farm Cradle Camp ground was great. Steve is such an enthusiastic guy, full of energy and words, stories to tell and generous to boot! A lovely walking tour of 'the farm' with Steve, meeting the cows and goats Bevan and Kevin. The camping area itself is great. Flat, well grassed, a recently added rustic outdoor shelter with fire pit adding to the experience. All within a fifteen minutes drive to Sheffield.

Great spot, right near Tasmazia. Had a really nice stay here for one night. The hosts weren’t there this weekend so we didn’t check out the animals, but had a fire and a nice hang out with the other campers. Everything easy, neat and tidy. Loved it!

Steve came down for a chat with us, took the kids to feed his farm animals, and then to top it off, even had a look at our van for us! If you are exploring Cradle Mountain, this is the perfect spot for families. Thanks so much Steve, we’ll be back 👍

Camping at The Farm Cradle Camp
The hospitality at The Farm Cradle Camp Ground is second to non. Steve and Shae have in-depth historical knowledge of the area, are dedicated to their farm and are very generous, offering spacious camp sites & plenty of room for the kids to run around. It was the perfect spot to settle for the night. Feeding the cows and chickens was a highlight and the views are amazing. Thanks team, we will definitely be back.

Steve and Shae welcomed us on arrival. Offered a fire pit which was great on the cold nights. Got a friendly welcome from the cows and got to feed Kevin and Bevan, the farm goats. Easily accessible to Cradle Mountain and all the touristy stuff in the area.

Shay and Steve are the best hosts, made us very welcome and happy to share information on what to see in the area including recommendations for the rest of our trip. Thank you Shay and Steve for a wonderful start to our Tassy adventure. Margaret and Gil.

This was a beautiful campground! Great open space next to a paddock of baby calves. Steve was very lovely and made sure everything was to our liking. The sunset was incredible. Close to the town centre.
