Surrounded by lush forest, this eco property is bush living in the suburbs of the North Illawarra. Enjoy a piece of paradise with a pool, BBQ and toilet (no shower). Neighbours include kookaburras, lizards and an array of birds - with occasional visits from Percy the Pony, black wallabies and some wild deer. Site is flat (on approach there is sloping ground) and accessible for tents and camp trailers; and caravans towed by 4WD. We are also listed on Air Camp Australia

An AWD and most 2WD will be able to drive down the slope to the area - it is quite slippery in the wet. Alternatively vehicles can park on the gravel which is about 100m away. It can be tricky to find our driveway, so we will e mail directions once your booking is confirmed. Kids 18months and under are free.

There is a toilet but no shower. We kindly ask you remove rubbish. Well controlled dogs are permitted. No fires as we're in a bushfire zone. The site is near the main residence but you will have plenty of privacy. We're on acreage - feel free to relax by the pool or go for a bush-walk. Thirroul is a few minutes walk/drive with pumping surf beaches, mountain bike trails, cafes, bars, restaurants, galleries and vintage stores.

What a good spot. Really nice property, with pool and bathroom access. Hosts are very welcoming. You feel like you are in the middle of nature surround by trees, the birds sing all day, and you are the only group there. Convenient for an easy camp 5mins to shops, beach and Sydney.

We had a lovely holiday here with our puppy. The hosts were very accomodating in letting us swim in their pool and use their BBQ. It's a great location as the beach (incl dog beaches) cafes & restaurants are only 5 mins drive away. Don't forget to bring drinking water. Would definitely come back.

It was a great spot to relax. The road noise was noticeable, but wasn't a problem. Next time we might set up right down the back. Handy to shops and close enough to visit friends. Lots of bird life, which made you feel like you were out the back of woop woop. All in all, a great spot.

Hewitts Hideaway is a conveniently located escape into nature. It is a good base to explore the Illawarra region. The hosts were very accomodating and easy to communicate with. Only negative would be that you can occasionally hear trucks coming down the hill, however the positives outweigh this!

Simon and Desiree were very friendly, helpful and welcoming. Their property was beautiful and exactly as expected. I read other reviews about the noise from the road and while you can hear it sometimes, it definitely didnt bother us or impact our sleep. It was a peaceful property & I definitely recommend it.

Massive campsite all to yourself, surrounded by forest and wildlife while still only a 2 minutes drive from thirroul. Would highly recommend.

Glorious little spot on the edge of suburbia but feels a million miles away. Can’t wait to make our way back here.
