If you want to avoid the crowds our property is only 10 minutes drive to great local surf and fishing beaches at Crescent Head. There is an abundance of bird life, the odd kangaroos and wallabies, and other wildlife. There is a melaleuca forrest that children are welcome to play in and build a cubby house, and 2 pretty little dams to catch yabbies, and for dogs to enjoy a swim. The property where camping is provided is approx. 20 acres with a limit of 10 groups so you can find your own little piece of paradise.

There is plenty of fire wood for you to collect on the property on your way in. Please help yourself to any fallen timber for firewood but please do not cut any standing trees down.

A large open paddock so it does have plenty of space for groups. Unfortunately the grass was 30cm high meaning it wasn’t overly pleasant to walk around, and made it hard to see the ground. We found 4 brown snake skins and that made me a bit nervous with our dog and the long grass. We asked for a whipper snipper so we could cut it back ourselves and the hosts gave it immediately which was great. The open area does also mean it is a lot windier as there’s not much to block it an no nooks to park in to. It’s also floods so after our week of rain it was very boggy. Maybe some advice from the host would be good to help navigate the property in these conditions. The hosts provide an abundance of firewood and a 10 min drive to C Head.

Response from Jarene, the Host, on November 20th, 2021

Hi Renee, Thanks for your feedback, however inaccurate. Welcome to the Australian bush, we do list this as a bush camp which comes with the beauty of the Australian wildlife. (Snake skins yes, brown snakes no!) Along with a symphony of bird calls to wake up to every morning and enjoy of an evening. Unfortunately we had a lot of rain so could not get the tractor down to slash. If you’d like manicured lawns you’re probably best to stay in a caravan park with others camped on top of you. It is 33 acres, and while we don’t have designated nooks like a caravan park we offer a huge space where you can have acres of space all to yourself. In future, please take your rubbish with you and clean up your camp fire appropriately as per our rules listed. We have to pick up left over fire wood before we can slash again for the next guests.

A flat paddock to camp in which was pretty easy to find. Be aware that GPS will take you past the property - you will find it just before the Verges Ck turn on Seale Rd if you are coming off the highway. Site was an easy drive to Crescent Head which has beautiful beaches. We had the whole field to ourselves and the host checked in to see if we needed anything.

Such an awesome place to stay. We loved the space and woods feel to the property. We stayed away from the trees to avoid the bugs. Thanks again for having us! 10/10 would recommend
