From this beautiful property near Bathurst, enjoy spectacular elevated views, and a classic Aussie bush setting. 

There are four cleared and level campsites, each private from one another, with enough for up to 10 people. From near camp, you're spoilt with amazing views overlooking Bathhurst, towards Mt Horrible and Mt Panorama. 

You'll share the space with kangaroos, emus, echidnas and more. At night, you'll discover why Billywillinga is home to the Bathurst Observatory, the skies here are often brilliant with stars. 

Each campsite has its own fire bucket and hot plate (for when restrictions aren't in place). A pit toilet is around 100 metres, an easy walk away from each site, where you'll also find running water for the shower, sink and washing machine.   

Macquarie River is less than 10 minutes drive away and has great fishing. Ophir Goldfields is around half-hour and is a popular tourist spot, where you can check out the mines and do tours. Root Hog Crossing and the Bridle Track to Hill End provides opportunities for 4WDing and plenty of bushwalking. 

Pets welcome but please keep them controlled, in respect of wildlife and other campers. No motorbikes.

I stayed here one night with my best friend and we were very pleased with the private little spot we got. The shower and toilet were a hike but nice to have them available. Charlie and her dad Ben we’re very kind and welcoming when we arrived and even offered to bring us some firewood if we needed it. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to get away from it all. If I’m ever passing through I would love to stay here again and even bring my dog as it is pet friendly. Thank you Ben and Charlie!

We had a great time - there were other campers at another site and we couldn't hear them at all. It's quiet and remote. The generator was broken but Ben quickly told us to take water from his main tank up at the house. Loved having his dogs come visit! We went on an incredibly cold weekend, so was glad we brought 120kgs of burning wood - we would have stuggled with just what we could find on the proprety. Would definitly return.

A lovely location and Ben is very hospitable. Had the best time with a group of mates and Ben's dogs are very good companions while camping. We will definitely be back!

Secluded bush camping at its best! Ben has cleared a couple of nice spots to set up camp and the fire pit and logs to sit on is a nice touch.
Camp site 2 the best but on on a slight gradient so watch which way you set up your tent.
Easy to find but follow the address and not Google Maps dropped pin. Thanks Ben.
