Welcome to Fern Valley Ranch!  

Important - Please read all of the info below before booking.

Are you looking for a refreshing alternative to caravan parks? Leave the city behind and reconnect with nature and yourselves. Tune back in to the birdlife and whistle of the breeze among the tall trees.

On the property you can enjoy a stunning waterfall,  two bush walks, citrus-picking, farm animals (a hit with the kids). Unwind with a cup of tea (or a beer!) by the campfire; it couldn’t be easier to leave your worries behind. 

We have two areas - the Orchard and Pine Trees, each with four sites that are very private.

⛺️🌳 

1 Site = 1 dwelling, ie. 1 tent or 1 camper trailer or 1 caravan/campervan or 1 rooftop tent

⛺️🌳 

We ask you to please keep your annex to a reasonable size or you may be asked to take it down. 

The Orchard area is about 1-2 min walk to amenities. The Pine Tree area is 3-4 min.

Self-contained guests, please choose the Pine Trees area.

On arrival, you can choose your site within the area you have booked, it is not designated as on the map.

If you book out an area (ie 4 bookings), you can book 2 extra sites by letting us know.

This was our first time staying at Orchard & Pine and we cannot recommend it enough! The bathroom facilities were clean however if you have young children be mindful it can be a bit of a walk from the Pine area which we didn’t mind. Dennis the property manager was so accomodating and really added to our stay - we walked to the waterfall, picked fruit and to top off our stay the kids had a tour of the property Sunday morning with animal feeding. Thank you for an incredible weekend!

Great location, very quiet. Property is very well presented with a great natural waterfall. The property manager was a great man who could not have been more helpful and relaxed. Being able to pick and take home citrus was a great bonus.

Awesome weekend away we camped here with 3 x families of 4.
Great place close to Sydney but far enough away to enjoy the peace & quiet.
Nice & Clean amenities.
All the kids aged between 10 & 15 enjoyed the tractor tour.

Great campground, very safe and well look after by the owner and campground manager. Clean bathroom and toilet. Love the waterfall and hiking trail. We will definitely recommend this place to our closed friends and family. One of the best Hipcamp, beautiful birds, wild lives and animals.
Note: especially Dennis the manager was very friendly and kind.

We absolutely loved staying on the property. Upon arrival we were kindly greater by Dennis who showed us to our camp site. Nice lush green grass in a flat paddock. Plenty of space between us and other campers. We also loved exploring the property and viewing the stunning waterfall. Would highly recommend staying here!
