We are 1 hour from Sydney, 15 minutes from the freeway, but feels like "the middle of nowhere"!!

Our farm was once part of a much larger dairy farm settled for over 100 years and still has remnants of the original building foundations. 

This is a nature corridor with abundance of wildlife as well as a working property  - we have camels (gotta love them), banded galloways, dorper sheep and Wiltipol sheep. 

Your campsite is nestled in a white gum forest, not far from a beautiful trickling creek. There is a small dam near campsites for water supply for showers where required.

Enjoy the evenings warming yourself around your campfire as you relax under the stars.

Tucked away in the corner of our 140 acre property adjoining a significant number of acres of bushland. You will see plenty of native wildlife - kangaroos, wombats, koalas, etc. You will hear nothing but nature. Experience nature's beauty in solitude.

No pets please.

Wayne was great and very friendly which made the experience much better. Wayne showed us to the camp area and told us a little about his farm which was great.
The camping area was so nice with limited campers making lots of room to spread out and enjoy the land for the weekend.
Only comment i can make would be more toilets needed as there was only one for everyone to use.

Beautiful hideaway amongst the White Gum Forest.
Host Wayne was super friendly and helpful.
I'd even go so far to say the amenities were 5 star!
There is a bit of reception here so I could work on my next project without having to leave the comfort of my campsite, watching the trees glisten from day to night.
Will definitely return.

We had a beautiful spot amidst the gum trees and next to the lake. A few other groups were camping nearby but the area is large enough to have plenty of privacy. The portaloo was a nice touch, very clean and well equipped. Wayne was a terrific host. I'd come here again!

White Gum Forest Resort is a special place. From the moment you drive through the front gate and are welcomed by an open forest paddock full of camels, there is nothing else quite like it.
The camp area itself is large, plenty of flat spots and highly picturesque with large mature Scibbly Gums dotted across the paddock. The paddock backs onto an endless expanse of bushland which gives ample opportunities for wildlife encounters, and when the setting sun hits the smooth mottled trunks of the gum trees the place lights up given off a warmth and inviting feeling.
You couldn't ask for a better host in Wayne. He is thoughtful, helfpul, accommodating and goes above and beyond to make your stay one to remember. I highly recommend the farm tour Wayne runs, especially if you have kids. My 3.5 year old son loved the camels. We will definitely be back.

A great camping spot amongst the trees. Wayne's a lovely host and a great tour guide as we went on the farm and camel tour! Loved it all, the cows, sheep, donkeys and of course the camels! And even the 4WD buggy ride. Thanks for a great weekend!

The site was perfect for our group, lots of space and quiet. Kids had a great time and enjoyed the camels. Wayne is a great host and made sure we were well setup.

We stayed for the long weekend and it was a short drive from Sydney but felt far from the hustle and bustle of the city. The camp grounds on the area sit within a beautiful forest of white gum trees and there is plenty of space to call your own. Still have phone connection just in case. Wayne was an absolute treat - great vibe and incredibly helpful. Also perhaps the best the kept portaloo we’ve ever seen haha

We had a great time at Wayne's property. He is a very enigmatic host. We stayed at his property to attend the Day On The Green and he went out of his way to accommodate our plans. He also has the best decked out portable loo!!
