Mckeown's Rest is a 300-acre multi-generation cattle farm, in the stunning Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage area. We have numerous animals here including miniature goats and sheep, alpacas, geese, ducks, turkeys, peacocks and guinea fowl. A real menagerie! While not staying at the house Hip-campers are welcome to visit the animals. please be mindful of privacy and don't walk around the actual house gardens.

We have rolling green hills, sweeping views and incredible sunrises. The two campsites we offer are nearer to the main homestead on level, grassed areas, out of the wind, where you can get a great vantage point of the views. We welcome self-contained campers only, to enjoy peace and privacy, in what is a convenient base for exploring this iconic part of Australia. 

We're adjacent to the Kanangra Boyd National Park and 25km from Kanangara Walls, and just a short 5-minute drive to the iconic Jenolan Caves, one of the worlds most stunning limestone cave systems. 

We have drinking water available for campers if you run out, however, no toilets or showers so you'll need to bring your own camp loo and take all waste with you. Pets welcome but to be kept on a lead, please. We have a  firepit for your campfire, and provide firewood free-of-charge, you just need to collect it yourself.

Lovely site, we will definitely have to come back when the weather clears up! Kids had a blast and loved the cows who came over for a look at what we were up to!

Great spot and plenty of space to make it feel like you have a piece of the farm to yourself. Jacqui and the fam were very welcoming. The animals are awesome. My 9 year old son loved it. Highly recommended.

A little tricky to find when I arrived at night with heavy fog, a mud map would have helped but easy access with my 25 foot van. A great base camp for my canyoning adventures

Hipcamper Julie

Nice little stream for the grandkid

Jacqui was a great host, due to the weather and us having a motorhome we were unable to camp at the site we booked however we had a good substitute site.The animals were a treat with the grandkids.
We had a wheelchair on board and was limited to what we could do.

Thank you Jacqui.
