Our Bush Camp Site is located approximately 400 metres from the river, tucked away to give you all the privacy you need to enjoy your stay with us. Far enough from the river to keep your small children protected whilst still enabling easy access for a day of swimming or fishing.

Watton Airstrip is a stunning property, nestled on the banks of the Macquarie River. You’ll share our spaces with kangaroos, wallabies, emus, echidnas, deer, platypus and more.

Enjoy some optional extras, including Tammie's home made bread, farm fresh, free range eggs, or one of our range of grazing platters, home made jams or hot chocolate kits fresh from our friends at Sophie’s Staples. Or pamper yourself with a Crystal reiki session, or tarot reading.

Lie back in your swag at night and let the star struck, velvety sky envelope you, or make a booking at the nearby Bathurst Observatory to see the stars up close.

Fish or swim in the river, ride your bikes, or set up camp and then head off on an adventure to the Goldfields at Ophir, or History Hill at Hill End via the Bridle Track.

Fires are allowed (fire restrictions permitting).

Wood can be collected from fallen wood around the property, or bring your own if you prefer.

There is a toilet located close to the riverbank that may be used by Bush Camp campers. You will need to bring your own drinking water and shower. Shower bags are available for hire.  Please do not use any form of soap product in or close to the river.

Pets are welcome for a one off fee per animal. We do ask that pets are supervised at all times and that they do not interfere with farm animals or local wildlife.

Beautiful spot on the river. Very friendly and helpful hosts. 4 wd track to site easily managed. There is actually a great toilet provided. Ground a little sloped but we still had a great night's sleep as it is so quiet and can only hear river noises. We definitely felt like we got away from it all.
