We are located in the middle of the north shore of Port Stephens. Two hours north of Hornsby or 1 hour north of Newcastle. There is lots of space for campers so you will have privacy whilst you enjoy your camping adventure. 

Our property is conveniently located just 5 mins off the Pacific Highway but a world away. You'll be 2 mins away from great swimming places and 11 mins from surf beaches. Check out the beach or go kite surfing. Bring your kayak or stand up paddle board.

This campsite suits self-contained campers who bring their own camping shower and drinking water supply (there is a toilet available). There are rubbish and recycling facilities available, however if you have large quantities of rubbish, you can take it to the recycling centre in town.

The National Park is about 20 mins from here but you can also take your bike for spin on our local road as it's a dead end road and has no traffic.

For those who are into stargazing we have a particularly good location with no light contamination from cities, industry or neighbours.  Combined with being on top of a hill we have 180 degree view of the night sky.   Bring your telescope and you will be blown away.

For down to earth practicalities It's a quick drive to tea gardens to Coles and solo to get any camping supplies. 

Well behaved dogs are welcome. Please pick up after them.

Free firewood.

A spit that'll take up to a 40kg beastie is available for hire.

For those that absolutely detest drop toilets, we have just installed a brand new throne room. We should have showers, another toilet and a laundry by end of December at latest. Goal completion date is December 26th . I’m just not advertising it right not as it’s not quite finished. But as soon as it is I will update listing.

Jon and May were amazing hosts and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable, with lots of local knowledge and a good chin wag. The view from the top camp sites down to Mt Barrington was amazing with a super fun kids playground. There are additional camping spots if you wanted a secluded spot near a Water hole surrounded by trees. We will definitely be dropping in again.

We had a nice 1 night stay at Jonothan’s property. Breathtaking views and peaceful countryside surrounds made this a real treat. Jonothan went above and beyond with the little touches by personally bringing us free firewood and a grill. He was a pleasure to interact with and could not recommend this place highly enough.

Awesome place with a stunning view of the mountains. Jonathan and May were very friendly and welcoming. Communication was excellent throughout. An abundant supply of firewood was provided and there was a solar powered off grid in a nearby shed to power your fridge, coffee machine, etc. Just make sure to bring a long extension cable. Local dog friendly Jimmys beach & Bennetts beach including Myall river only minutes away. Conveniently located to shopping centres in nearby Tea Gardens or Hawks Nest. Highly recommended.
