The camp site is tranquil and has a large open, flat camping area in a mowed grassy clearing. The secluded clearing is boarded by a Woodland forest with stunning flora like Waratahs, Xanthorrhoea's, Orchids and Banksias. The property is home to many beautiful species of fauna like Gang-gang Cockatoo's, Eastern Rosella's and the cheeky iconic Magpie which will warble a warm welcome. The grassy clearing is frequented by large Kangaroos at dawn and dusk. Just a stones throw from the property you have easy access to world class lookouts and bush walks. If you are into climbing, canyoning, trekking, trail running, cafes, restaurants or walking along breath taking National Park trails, then you will love visiting our area.

This camp is perfect for groups/families not wanting to be camped on top of by other campers, and to have room for the kids to run around, kick a ball or to explore. If you would like to book the whole property please let us know and we can see if we can come to an arrangement. 

Fires are restricted to existing fire pits to minimize scars on the ground. If you prefer to bring your own fire pit we ask that you leave no trace. Fires are only permitted when there are no bans in place. Please be extra vigilant around this as our community is only just recovering after the devastating recent fires. Fires are to be modest and discrete. No fires are permitted on total fire ban days. Only use firewood that you can break by hand or cut with a hand saw from the property. Out of respect for our neighbors and other campers, please do not use a chainsaw at the camp. Note there is no water on the property so you will need to allow enough to ensure you have completely extinguished your fire before you depart. We have firewood available to buy at $12 a create. Please let us know if you would like this additional option. There is lot of small to mid range kindling onsite, however you will either need to organise with us to purchase larger logs or bring your own. 

There is a rustic composting toilet, please supply your own toilet paper. Well behaved pets are welcome and we encourage you to keep your dog on a lead if they are likely to adventure too far from your site & disturb the local wildlife.

Such a great little area to camp, only a couple of K’s outside Katoomba but you feel like you’re away from everything… best of both worlds!

A big thumbs up for Grass Tree Bush Camp from us. A lovely grassy site encircled by bush, complete with bird life and flowering waratahs (October), and only 2.5 km from Katoomba! The composting toilet is impressive- complete with a regal staircase and solar lights.

Great little campsite on private land close to katoomba.
Lots of trees and opportunities to have a fire.
Toilet is clean and close to all campsites.
Hosts are lovely and prompt with replies. Kids help you with firewood! :)

Seems there are more than two sites as previously advertised so it was kind of first come first serve basis of which campsite you get so we didn't end up getting the one we wanted which was a little disappointing. They might have updated the listing since then.

The Grass Tree Bush Camp is amazing! Large flat grass area with firepits plenty of firewood to pick up. easy access and close to Katoomba (maybe 3 min of a drive).
The best is the drop toilet, never seen such a cute drop toilet before. Kylyn decorated the toilet 👍 toilet paper and sanitiser is available. The whole camp was sparkling clean.
Kylyn is an amazing host! I only can recommend this place.
Our two 🐕 loved the space and the running around. We will be definitely back.
Thank you Kylyn

Good spot very close to Katoomba. Kylyn was quick to respond to any questions and we had a crate of firewood ready when we arrived. So much nicer that the commercial camping grounds.

This is such a lovely spot, easy to get too. We were able to make a campfire to stay warm, there is a toilet and boy this was the cleanest long drop I have ever seen.
We would have enjoyed it more except for the lousy weather. Will be back!!
