Exquisite location in nature.
We had an amazing weekend at the Inner Space Temple. Beautiful location in a wonderful healing space. It's rustic, but in a good way. Sitting by the camp fire as the sunset shines through the trees was magical. Thank you to Rodrigo and Natalia for sharing your space with us.

Camping with an 18month old and dog
Beautiful ferny forest setting, good bit of exercise on the short walk up to the toilet/shower/kitchen which were all in good order and super convenient. We also enjoyed the short stroll down to the creek each day and interesting chats with Natalia. Thanks for having us, looking forward to coming back!

Suburban camping with the lot!
Incredible spot! We were a group of 37 camping to celebrate the new year. We had plenty of space to stretch out, explore, and shelter if it rained (which it didn't). Plenty of ferns and trees to provide a beautiful, natural experience. Rodrigo and Natalia were accommodating and provided those extra bits and pieces that can be hard to come by dealing with a group.

Beautiful spot
Beautiful peaceful spot with lovely touches of thoughtful amenity (shower was amazing!). Great location to explore the neighbouring towns and walks and then settle in back at camp at night with a cozy campfire

Rainforest Retreat
Lovely little place outside surburbia where you are camping just outside the forest entrance. Lots of trees surrounding the property. Facilities were clean and tidy with access to toilet and shower. Site was advertised as one site only however when arrived a second site was set up not far away. Unfortunately privacy was not as expected given to use the facilities you had to walk past our campsite. Otherwise apart from this, would recommend. Host was lovely and accomodating.

Forest Hideout
The property is beautiful! We camped under tree ferns amongst the eucalypts. So peaceful and relaxing. The walk down to the creek was through bush and giant eucalyptus to tree ferns. The creek was burbling along and was magical to sit by and relax in the cool. The hosts were welcoming and hearing about their forest regeneration project was wonderful to hear. The toilet was clean and the shower nice and hot. Lots of crockery and cutlery if you need. We will definitely call in again. Beats staying in a hotel anytime!!

Beautiful block of land and wonderful hosts. We booked the whole place for ourselves over the weekend and had a great time. Lots of flat land to camp, a rainforest walk, a large cosy shed, fire pit and fire wood was provided. The hot shower, toilet and space to sleep inside was a bonus. I would highly recommend this spot for a weekend getaway. Thanks so much for the hospitality Rodrigo and Natalia.

Absolute Bliss in Nature
I absolutely loved camping here. It was not too far from Melbourne and yet seemed as though it was a million miles away. They have done a brilliant job of setting up the campsite so that its at the back of their property right on the forest. There is a nature reserve literally next door. Absolute Bliss!!! Rodrigo and Natalia was so lovely and helpful, an absolute pleasure. Happy to help out to orientate us and give us fire lighters and otherwise left us to our own devices. They have installed all the modern conveniences that you could wish for to make it a very comfortable stay. Will definitely be back.

Peaceful spot
A beautiful, peaceful spot on the edge of the forest. Bonus of facilities including shower and kitchenette with hot water. Cute little creek at the bottom and nothing but the sound of wildlife all around. It was so relaxing and Natalia was lovely and helpful before and during our stay.

Really like the direction Natalia is taking with her property and it sounds promising for the future! Will definitely come back to, what I'd call, her little paradise. The camping area offers a lot of privacy which was very enjoyable. The place also offers a very nice walk to a little creek, fairy-tale like.

Really nice place to camp and easy to get to. Theres plenty of space and things to do nearby. The campsite’s portaloo was very clean and the outdoor shower is amazing - Really high pressure and the water gets really nice and hot. You’re smack bang in the middle of the forest so there’s lovely views all around you. Highly recommend.

Good spot for us inexperienced campers. Owners introduced themselves and were friendly but we had our own space. Porta-loo on sight was handy.

We had a lovely one night stay with the area all to ourselves amongst the gorgeous trees. The hosts checked we had everything we needed and then we otherwise had privacy in the space. It was great to get a campfire going and enjoy the peace and quiet of the forest. Portaloo was clean it was very easy to find with the hosts directions.

Very nice and cozy
Great site, it had everything I needed to have quiet time with my dog for a night, and a path down to creek had very unique touch! We had nice surprise visits from the owner’s pugs which my dog enjoyed, also saw an echidna slowly walking around the premises.

Nice little stay over
This was just a really short overnight trip on our way to South Australia. Really nice spot, very private with great little firepits. Clean toilet which is always nice. It was a really nice spot with our two dogs and we would definitely stay again if we travel this way.

Natalia is very nice. The place is peaceful. The terrain is quite uneven if you setup a rooftop tent might need to find the right spot. Recommend this place 👍🏻

Camping in the rainforest feels
This was the most perfect stay! From the moment I enquired, Natalia was so helpful. Me and my partner felt like we were in the rainforest camping with the luxury of a toilet and a swimming pool. We were able to get some add ons as well, firewood and we went kayaking at the local lake! We are so happy! If you’re thinking about booking, you’d be crazy not to!

Lovely cottage and wonderful hosts
Beautiful location and was perfect for city dwellers like us to have a relaxing family getaway close to nature. The cottage was lovely and cozy and had a fully equipped kitchenette. Enjoyed the campfire at night under the stars. There are quite a few places to explore nearby including creek/nature trails, space observatories, etc. The host Natalia was very friendly and helpful. My kid had an absolute blast playing with the two cute pugs! Would definitely go there again!

We loved staying at Matilda's cottage! My husband, son and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves - exploring the bush surrounds, building a campfire, relaxing outside in the pool and they had super comfortable beds too! Natalia and Rodrigo were lovely and friendly to deal with. The place had a really nice, happy vibe about it. We had a wonderful weekend and would highly rate and recommend!
