Despite appalling weather there was a lovely peaceful atmosphere at Justin's piece of paradise.
We enjoyed horses who observed us from a distance the first day but were very close when pack up time came.
Approach is straightforward and a hard base track was useful in the mud. Justin was great meeting us with his dogs to offer assistance if we wanted anything.
Really great spot and we hope to visit again soon

A great spot! It was really wet when we camped, but we managed to find a spot to camp, with Justin’s guidance. Can see it would be just perfect when the ground is not so boggy from the excess rain the coast has experienced. Did not make it to the creek and swimming hole…that will have to be next visit there! Enjoyed our stay 😊

I loved my peaceful night camping amongst the trees next to the dam with my golden retriever. Justin was a great host and as it had been raining recently my cars front wheel got stuck in some mud. Justin obliged by getting his tractor and pulling my car out. Very good of him! Thanks for a lovely stay. I saw a lovely kangaroo and a kookaburra up in the tree.

Great spot to camp if you want a spot close to the freeway to do day trips. Lots of firewood and the horses came to visit morning and night which was a beautiful bonus!

This site was perfectly described - conveniently close to the highway but quiet and peaceful. I took my dog for a walk down to the creek which was beautiful. Would definitely recommend!

Justin’s land was a great spot for camping, plenty of room for each camper and just off the highway you’d be surprised how quiet it was. Would definitely stay there again
