Ironbark Ranch is an idyllic Australian bush retreat set on a family property in the Central Coast Hinterland, NSW. Tucked away on a mountain top at the entrance to the Popran National park on 105 acres of native bush, lifestyle farm paddocks with open sky, Ironbark Ranch is perfect for anyone wanting to get away from their day to day, the city, the coast or are die hard, self sufficient campers looking for their next hip spot.

A true hiker and nature lovers paradise with several bush walks of varying difficulties and distances, such as Mt Olive and the Emerald Pools for swimming. There are plenty of birds, lizards, and other Australian Wildlife viewing. We have several tracks through our own property for walking which offer amazing scenic views of the hinterland and bush. Mountain bikers have plenty of options. 

Find your own tranquil spot on your own 30 acres of private land - amidst the sounds of the Australian bush for a session of sunrise yoga or mediation, or take in the bush views with your loved ones for a sunset drink. Families will be in heaven in the wide open space - with plenty of freedom to move and have fun - without the worry of neighbours asking to turn the noise down.

We have cows, horses, chickens, geese and dogs on our family friendly property. Nearby attractions - Ironbark Road Waterfalls, Glenworth Valley Horseriding, Hawksbury River fishing and boating,Australian Walkabout Park.

Please note - 4WD vehicles are essential in wet weather.

Beautiful spot. It even has a nice view. Really easy access to the national park toilet. It's located in a separate area well away from the main house and you get a huge area all to yourself so there's no-one else for miles around. Sascha and Clint were very quick to respond and very helpful. Looking forward to staying here again!

Great secluded bush camp. Sascha and Clint made finding it super easy. The kids loved feeding the horses and our Groodle loved the freedom of being off leash the whole stay! Was a great spot we'll be back.

What a stunning spot. We camped for a long weekend away and had a fantastic time. Our host Sascha was there to meet us and take us to the camping spot and was always happy to assist us with anything. If you looking for some peace and tranquillity for few days then this is the spot for you. We will definately be back.

We had a lovely stay at Ironbark Ranch - the site is beautiful with lots of gum trees and grass trees and some firepits already set up. It was wonderful to unwind in nature with friends over the weekend. The site is directly next to the Ironbark Picnic Area Carpark so you don't even need to drive there if you want to do any of the hikes in Popran National Park. We definitely recommend the Emerald Pool walk to cool off on a hot day.
Sascha and Clint were both lovely in helping us get to the site in our 2WD (it was fine just a few sharp rocks at the top of the ridge). We also loved the friendly horses :) Would definitely recommend this site.
