La Cascina is a small property situated on a hill surrounded by trees and bushland. There are two main camping areas which would suite tent and small to medium van/car camping. There is access to neighbouring bushland with nice short walks available in the area.  Only 20 minutes by car to Newcastle CBD, 10 minutes by car to redhead beach and 5 minutes by car to Lake Macquarie. 

La Cascina is a great spot to stop overnight on a road trip or to get away for the weekend to relax. We have no toilets so please bring your own. The access to the property is a steep sealed driveway. 

Site 1 is an open site with plenty of shade. The area is flat. More suited to larger camping set ups. This site is closest to the Beehives. 

Site 2 is a more uneven surface area which is better for smaller vans and tents. 

Redhead Beach is the closest dog beach 10 minutes by car. 

Croudace Bay is a dog park on the lake which is 5 minutes by car. 

This is a family owned acreage that brings the best parts of environmental living with the benefits of being close to the coast and a city. A very long time ago it was the site of a quarry. Then nature has returned and we are left with a beautiful forested acreage.

Lovely wee bush spot right in Newcastle! A rare find that feels far from the suburbs! Peaceful and spacious with a lovely tree outlook. Really appreciated the firepit so we could enjoy a lovely fire with no worry. Would recommend and certainly return. Thanks Rory. ☺️

La Cascina is a great spot to base yourself to explore the area. It was close to town but we felt like we were camped in the bush. Thanks for having us!

Enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again. Apart from a very noisy flock of cockatoos (!) this was a very peaceful bushland location, conveniently located near to Newcastle. Thanks Rory!
